When he posed for "Nation's Bravest," a 2012 firefighter beefcake calendar, Jack Slivinski Jr. wanted the proceeds of his portion of the calendar sales to benefit Philadelphia Firefighters Local 22 Widow's Fund.
After his death by suicide in June, that cause became more important than ever to his mom Gerry, dad Jack Sr. and sister Jennifer Wysocki. So I'm glad to pass along their request that you click here to vote for Jack Jr. in an online contest rating each "Nation's Bravest" firefighter on sexiness. ( Note: The deadline to vote is Jan. 15, so the quicker your click, the better.) The top vote-getter earns a $1,000 prize from Rusk Hair Products, which is sponsoring the "Being Sexy" contest. If Jack wins - so far, he's leading the pack - the money will go to the Widow's Fund.
I know. A contest on "sexiness" is silly. And the website for it is kind of cheesy. But this is good cause and Jack Jr. was a wonderful guy. To meet him in happier days, click here.
Now go vote!
