JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Once a Jersey boy, always a Jersey boy.

Bruce Springsteen’s son, Sam, could have been an FDNY EMT, instead he chose being a firefighter in New Jersey, the New York Post reports.

Sam Springsteen scored 75 on the civil service exam back in 2015 and was 497 on a waiting list of 1,359. The city called him up in March 2017 to offer him the job, which starts at $32,000. He instead chose to wait it out.

Sam Springsteen was sworn into the Jersey City Fire Department earlier this month with his famous father and mother, Patti Scialfa, looking on. This job pays him $37,000.

“It’s probably a smart move,” a source told the Post. “He’ll make a good living. And he’ll be home, a Jersey boy close to his dad.”
