AJ Wrublewski



AJ is Captain of the Slidell Fire Department who enjoys fishing and hunting. He lives by the words, “You can always get more money, but you can’t get more time.” AJ is inspired every day by his wife and children, and he is passionate about building the next generation of leaders. On the subject of domestic violence, AJ states: “I recently learned that 5 million children witness domestic violence every year in the U.S. These same children are neglected at a rate of 1500% higher than the national average, and are three times more likely to repeat the cycle in adulthood. Domestic violence is not only affecting adults, but our nation’s youth as well. I believe it’s a matter of the heart. I’m excited to be a part of this organization to bring awareness levels up, and also to get to the heart of the matter.
