Geneva resident Jim Pomillo, 34, was walking his dog at Fabyan Forest Preserve in Geneva when he answered nine questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I saved a guy from a burning building when I was 24. We were in a Sobelman’s Bar and Grill in Milwaukee after eight hours of taking the engineer exam, and there was a fire upstairs. It was before the firemen came. There was a guy upstairs, and I went up to the fourth floor and got him out.
