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 Legacy.com:
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
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)
