Joe was recognized by late Sheriff Jake Miller as the 1995 Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Deputy of the Year.

He was recognized for his actions several times that year, including a Life Saving bar when he and team of deputies went looking for a distraught woman in a heavily wooded area.

Emergency personnel couldn’t respond to the area, so when Joe found her, he personally picked her up and carried her to safety.
