Jason Sekzer 9/11/01

I have the honor of paying tribute to Jason Sekzer. Jason worked at Cantor Fitzgerald on September 11th, 2001. From

When he couldn't spend his summber at camp Jason joined its board of directors. "It was something special," said his wife, Natalie Makshanov-Sekzer, 31, whom he had met there; the couple married in January. "The camp and the friends we made there were a major support to me after Sept. 11," she said.

Jason, 31, the son of a New York City police officer, began at Cantor Fitzgerald as a clerk and worked his way up to vice president. "Every year he got promoted; he was doing very well," his wife said. Once a year, Mr. Sekzer combined his job and his camp: he invited executives from Cantor Fitzgerald to play in a charity golf tournament raising money for Camp Sussex.
You are not forgoten Jason. I stay in contact with you beloved father, a wonderful person and man. May you always walk with the ALMIGHTY

Dear Jason;
It has been such a long time since we seen each other. The last time was at my dad's funeral.I went to visit my dad and brother a while ago so I stopped by your grave and put a rock on your tombstone in honor of you. We were part of each others lives due to our father's careers and friendships and I will never forget you. Your father is a great man and was a great cop. My dad loved him like a brother. I think the last time I spoke to your dad was when I was in Japan and he sounded heart broken. G#d Bless you and your family. I just want to say that I miss you and I dedicated one of my records to you. I will be back home in Queens soon. I will stop by your grave site again when I visit David and Dad.
P.S. I finally grew up and now gonna have a son of my own...Miss You Jason!!!

what a beautiful tribute this is to you and how deserving you are of all these kind words -- you've touched so many people. I always remember you had a special closeness with your family and as I read, the loss just breaks my heart. I also remember when Natasha's father became sick, how you stepped in what a rock you were in such a painful situation (and you were so young, too). Anyone whose path you crossed was truly blessed. Everyone needs a "Jason" in their life. You were an amazing human being! I miss you. Dawn McCoy (Madison Square Garden)

As a neighbor you were the best, as a friend even more. I watched you grow from a boy into a young man and what a great one at that. You were always kind and thoughtful of others. Your family was always wonderful to me and I always felt safe knowing your Dad was just one door away!! I will never forget the New Years Eve we all spent together, I had a great time and YOU made sure I got home safely. You are truly missed and loved by many. It breaks my heart knowing the world lost you at such a young age but the memories live on and they are wonderful just as you were. Miss and love you much Yvette With angels wings he flies, that I am sure of!! <3
