CCFD manager earns Ph.D.
The Cape Coral Fire Department’s Fire Emergency Management Division Manager, Jesse Spearo, graduated with honors as a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Emergency Management from Capella University’s School of Public Service Leadership in New Orleans on March 12.
Spearo is one of a very small and exclusive number of emergency management practitioners that have an earned Ph.D. in Philosophy in Emergency Management.
This accredited doctorate program took Spearo approximately six years to complete. His dissertation expanded the knowledge and understanding of how attitudes impact a person’s level of professionalism within the profession of emergency management.
Spearo has worked in emergency management for more than 10 years and plans on continuing serving as a practitioner with the City but looks forward to also conducting advanced research and teaching in emergency management within academia.
