John Fisher 9/11/01

I have the honor of paying tribute to John Fisher. John was a a Port Authority security consultant. He was the father of seven children, ages 6 to 16. He died a hero on September 11th, 2001. I hope his kids know that he probably saved many lives that sad day. Here are some kind quotes that I found on
I have just read about John Rogers Death, and I will pray for his family everyday. I respect what he did to help save others so they can live, and I look up to him.

I have just learned of John's death on 9/11. I went to high school with John. He was close friends with Tommy K. Tommy and I were a couple and John was with my close friend Mary Anne. We all did everything together. Proms, parties and just being friends. After high school things changed, as things do. I never saw John after I went away to college. I heard he worked for his father, but nothing more. His name was so common, I couldn't find him by searching. Today, a mutual friend sent me this. Bobby, if you read this, please contact me. For years, I have thought of you both. The strength of our friendship, during those critical years, was so important to who we were then that it is part of us now. I can not believe he is gone. The world is a darker place without John. That he died helping others does not surprise me. He was always a special person.

I can't believe it's been six years since the towers came down. I wish Mr. Fisher's family the absolute best. I can't call him John because I met him when I was young. I was the Fisher family babysitter from the time there were just 2 children up until there were 7. I know the children are grown and doing wonderfully. I also know their dad would be proud.

I met John when I was attending Montclair State College in 1976. With great sorrow I learned of his death just today, July 2, 2007. I would appreciate it if either one of his sisters or Gail would contact me via my work e-mail. My sympathies to his family. Love, Joan Powers Wilson

I am the oldest of John's children, Erin. It has been so moving (and difficult) to read these beautiful wishes from all of you. I appreciate so fully your heartfelt prayers. If you would like to email me, please do so at:

I know what you've all said has made my dad smile.
