Michael R. Wittenstein 9/11/01

I have the honor of paying tribute to Michael R. Wittenstein. Michael was a Trader, Cantor Fitzgerald and worked in the WTC on September 11, 2001. Michael R. Wittenstein loved game shows, the Jets and Mets, and good (or, truth to tell, bad) jokes. When he graduated from the State University of New York at Albany 13 years ago, he told friends he planned to be a proctologist or a game show host. Instead, he became a bond trader for Cantor Fitzgerald, working in London and California, as well as New York. He was delighted when the firm did away with its dress code; ever after, he was sighted only in khakis and polo shirt.

Gone but not forgotten, my old friend from condolences to your family on this sad day.

Today and every September 11 I can't help but think of my old pal Mark Hershkowitz and his beloved nephew Michael.

Both gone, but never forgotten.
