NORTH PORT — Lt. Jeff Newland, a firefighter/paramedic with North Port Fire Rescue, passed away Wednesday night. A 14-year veteran of the department, Newland, 50, died as a result of a sudden dissecting aortic aneurysm he suffered on April 23.
“It came out of nowhere,” North Port Fire Marshal Michael Frantz said Thursday, adding Newland will most definitely be missed. “He was part of the fabric of North Port. You can’t be here 14 years and not have some sort of impact.”
