Steven Pollard died as he was responding to an overturned car on the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn, when he fell 50 feet through a gap in the bridge crossing from the East to West side.

Steven was a strong, handsome, funny, shy, hardworking, loyal, sweet, intelligent, leader. He loved fishing, sports, and spending time with his friends and family. He was a charismatic person that people enjoyed being around. He had many of his closest friends since early childhood. He was beloved and respected and is missed dearly every day.

Steven was a big and handsome man, affectionately known by his former JetBlue coworkers as, “Captain America.” People were drawn to him. He was caring, loyal, considerate and funny. He was exactly the kind of man that you would want your son to grow up to be or your daughter to marry.
