Shawn and his roommate from Seton Hall, Alvaro Llanos use their incredibly moving story to speak to higher education leaders and students around the country on the importance of improving fire safety.
Their story can also be found in a book written in 2010, called After the Fire: A True Story of Friendship and Survival, and it was also made in to a documentary (After the Fire – A True Story of Heroes and Cowards).
