Meet The People Behind One Innocent Life

Jeff Block,


Jeff founded One Innocent Life in June 2015 while crusading for legal action to improve CT fire safety standards. He has been campaigning for fire safety in Connecticut homes since 2012, when his daughter, Eva, and her two friends Kerry and Kevin, died in a fire in their off-campus housing at Marist College on January 21st.​

Robert Ross,

South Fire District Chief

Middletown, CT

Rob Ross first encountered One Innocent Life while putting on a fire safety awareness event at UConn, and wanted to get further involved. Jeff brought him on as a board member - Fire Safety is his job and specialty, and the technical knowledge he brings to the table is an asset to the cause.

Christopher Reed, 

Fire Marshal

University of New Haven

When Jeff was looking for someone with firsthand, University-specific experience involving fire codes and fire safety, Christopher Reed became the go-to resource. As someone whose job involves inspecting campus housing, he has the most direct knowledge of the issue One Innocent Life is focused on.​
