Dan Magoon – Executive Director, Massachusetts Fallen Heroes

Portrait of Dan MagoonDan Magoon is a committed and driven community leader who has successfully led nonprofit, Massachusetts Fallen Heroes, for seven years. The organization is dedicated to honoring returning Veterans and those who have given their lives in service since September 11, 2001. Under his leadership, Massachusetts Fallen Heroes has grown into a multimillion dollar nonprofit.

Dan’s proudest accomplishment as executive director occurred in May of 2016, when the organization unveiled a 50-foot public tribute in South Boston’s Seaport Common.  The Massachusetts Iraq and Afghanistan Fallen Heroes Memorial is the first of its kind in the nation. It is a powerful and refined beacon of light, a five-sided diaphanous column signifying the branches of the Service, looming above the trees in the park and reaching for the sky acknowledging the sacrifice these service members have made. The unveiling was in conjunction with Massachusetts Fallen Heroes’ first annual Patriot Week, a 10 day series of events honoring local veterans and Gold Star Families.

Today, Massachusetts Fallen Heroes is focused on supporting local Gold Star Families and Veterans through outreach programs, special events, and advocacy services.

Dan began his service with the United States Army as a paratrooper in 2003, and completed three combat deployments between Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2007, he concluded his service with the rank of Sergeant. Upon receiving an honorable discharge from the United States Army, Dan joined the Boston Fire Department. He is a proud son of South Boston and currently resides in Dorchester, Massachusetts with his wife Megan and two sons, Conrad and Winston.
