Jeff Larosa, Parma, OH

Parma, OH, Letter Carrier Jeff Larosa

Letter carriers can be the eyes and ears of their communities — and in the case of Jeff Larosa, the nose, too.

Larosa was delivering mail in Parma, OH, recently when he smelled natural gas.

He sought out a nearby homeowner to alert her to the problem. She contacted the gas company, which was able to fix the leak before it caused any damage.

“This was a gas leak that could have resulted in someone … being injured,” Customer Services Manager Wendy Wright said. “He’s my Parma hero!”
