Tunnel to Towers Helps Family of Fallen Officer by Paying Mortgage


Tunnel to Towers Foundation, the nonprofit created in honor of fallen 9/11 firefighter Stephen Siller, is helping the family of a fallen NYPD officer by paying off their mortgage.


Officer Anastasios Tsakos, a married father of two young children from Long Island, was working a fatal accident scene at about 2 a.m. Tuesday, April 27, on the Long Island Expressway when police say a woman veered into him and fled the scene.


“He was an amazing guy. He loved what he was doing…He was just an amazing guy…it’s really hard,” Teddy Tsakos, the brother of fallen NYPD officer, told “Fox & Friends” Friday. Tsakos’ young daughter added that she loved her uncle very much.

The brother of the 14-year veteran NYPD officer said that when he discovered the devastating news from his sister-in-law, she expressed concerns about how she was going to pay for their new house.

Tsakos assured her that they were going to “figure it out” and said the Tunnel to Towers Foundation CEO Frank Siller, called a few hours later, saying he was going to take care of the home.


“Police officers are risking their lives every day for us so that we could live in a community,” Siller told co-host Ainsley Earhardt. “Tunnel to Towers Foundation, we’re there for our first responders and our military and we want to make sure that this mortgage is paid off immediately.”

Tunnel to Towers builds mortgage-free homes and supports Gold Star families through $11 minimum donations from people around the country.
