Project 2996: Remembering Andrew Stern

This is my blog post from 2009's Project 2996.

Andrew Stern, 41, of Bellmore, N.Y., a bond broker at Cantor Fitzgerald, worked on the 104th floor of 1 World Trade Center. A huge New York Yankees fan, Stern helped coach his son's Little League team and took his son to Yankees games. Stern usually rose at 4 a.m. to go to the gym before work. An avid runner and solid athlete, he ran in the New York City Marathon

September 11, 2001 started off just as any other late summer day in the Hudson Valley. Andrew rose that morning at 4:00 AM for is usual morning run. It was unusually clear and the sun shown brightly on the two towers at the center of World Trade Plaza. Andrew worked on the 104th floor of WTC 1, and was busy at work when his life and the lives of thousands of others were violently shaken at 8:45 that morning. He was one of 700 employees Cantor Fitzgerald is estimated to have lost that day.

Unfortunately, the further from 9/11/01 we get, the harder it is to find information on those who were lost that day, but I was able to find a tribute written to Andrew on September 11, 2006. Do yourself a favor and read it.

God Bless and keep Andrew Stern's family. May they be comforted.
