I have the honor of paying tribute to Bryan Jack. Bryan was 48 years old on 9/11. He was passenger on American Airlines Flight 77. Jack was a brilliant mathematician and top budget analyst who translated policy decisions by the defense secretary into hard numbers. He had recently married his long time girlfriend of 15 years. I found so many messages left for Bryan, he is very missed and was so loved. I'm sorry that he was killed on that awful day. Here are some of the memories that have been left for him....
Bryan, my dear cousin: U.S. forces killed bin Laden today in Pakistan. He is gone, and I am glad. But you are still gone, too. And nothing will ease that pain. Please know we love you and miss you. Leanne McGinty Perry
Bryan: In the 90s when I was working for OSD Comptroller and you were with PA&E, you encouraged me to finish up my PhD at Virginia Tech. I finally did so in 2004 and dedicated my dissertation to you. You were one of the smartest guys I ever knew, and I want to thank you publicly for your support. I'm sure you're in God's hands now, teaching math to the angels.
John Bourbeau, Huntsville, Alabama
Bryan, Your memory is a blessing. Peace forevermore, Susan
This tragedy still remains as a fresh wound in our hearts. As it will for the rest of our lives. My prayers still are with you and yours. Lou Ann Carter, Lincoln, Nebraska
As a member of the greater Jack family, I am always saddened by the loss of one of us. Bryan's loss is tragic to be sure, but I am heartened by the love he received in life and by the continuing love and remembrance he will have hereinafter. His memory will be in my heart each time I think of Texas or Japan (where I spent many years), the DoD (where I worked for years), or when I eat a piece of pecan pie (my favorite!).My love to his family and friends.
Daniel Jack, Hesperia, California
Your sacrifice lives within us now, and will every day to come. God will bless and watch over those who stayed behind.

Brian Jack was the portrait of a true gentleman. I wish there were more men like him. What a gentle soul he was. He will be greatly missed here at the Pentagon. May God bless his wife and family.Cindy Alexander Woodbridge, Virginia
Brian - Enjoyed talking to you on the subway a few weeks ago before you passed away. I always enjoyed your company as we worked together in OSD PA&E from 1981-1985 with John Morgan and Milt Margolis. Sorry I did not get a chance to meet your bride or take up your invitation to visit you in the Pentagon. May god rest your soul and my sincerest condolences to your family. Regards, Frank Hall Alexandria, Virginia
I have the honor of paying tribute to William Caswell. He was 54 years old on 9/11/01. He was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 77. From what I have read of him, he was a really smart guy. Crazy smart. He was a physicist that graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park and received his doctorate in elementary particle theory from Princeton University. He did postdoctoral research at Stanford and Brown universities and taught physics at the University of Maryland before beginning work for the Navy almost 20 years ago. He was said to have been very competitive, kind was loved, "He loved everything about life. He played pool and bridge and racquetball, and tennis with his daughter Jennifer. He liked folk dancing, too. That's how we met," his wife Jean Caswell.
Here are some of the messages from Legacy.com that friends and loved ones have left for Bill. He was loved and is missed...
It was my privilege to work with Bill for a number of years. Thoughtful, smart, and gentle are words that come to mind as I think of him.Today our guys got UBL for Bill and the others. God Bless you. Bill Caswell, and may God Bless your family. Mike
The Caswells have always been a patriotic and intelligent group, my condolences, Dana J. Caswell Albany NY
Gingi, it's so hard to believe five years have passed. I wanted to pay my respects to your brother today. My thoughts are with you and your family. Rise Shifra Shamansky, Kew Gardens, New York
Jennifer, you don't know me, but I am also a senior at your school in Silver Spring.Let me just say that I offer my deepest and sincerest condolences. I can only imagine what you and your entire family have been going through, but I do feel hurt and pain over this senseless attack and loss of innocent lives. Know that you, your father, and your family have been in my prayers. And also know that if you ever need someone for whatever, please let me know what I can do to help.Much love.God bless. Omar Guerrero, Silver Spring, Maryland
I have the honor of paying tribute to Renee May. Renee was 39 years old on 9/11/01, she was a Flight Attendant for American Airlines on Flight 77. She loved art and worked as a docent at the Walters Art Museum and was engaged to be married. She made blankets for her friends and liked to travel the US.
Here are some of the memories that I found on Legacy.com - both to Renee and telling stories about her and how much she will be missed.
The 7th Anniversary has come and gone. We had a dedication for the 9/11 Memorial in Grapvine on 7-4-2008. I thought of you on my Maui trip last week, Renee. I flew with Shirley Hall and told her about you and why I had not visited any of the sights around the country. I was impressed with the speech she wrote and the results of the sculpture. I wish I could have been there to represent you but I had a trip. You would be proud of the volunteers who have worked so hard to make the monument come to fruition. I made a contribution and it is in your memory. I am ready to visit the sights, I will go to Ground Zero, the Pentagon and to Grapvine. Shirley has helped me make the first move, I think seeing the pictures and reading her speech did it for me. I know it will be tough but nothing compared to the bravery you exemplified 9-11-2001. As we leave the month of September for 2008, I will not forget you, ever. I think of you each time I take off on a trip and ask God to have the angels go with me. You are one of those I know is with me.Blessings to your family, I sure hope they get to read these entries and know how much you meant to all of us. You are my SHERO!Dawn Michelle Berry AA Classmate 87-27 (Goldi) Dawn Michelle Berry,
Renee was my mother's best friend. My mom is Thais Schurder! Some one mentioned them always being together and loving Rod Stewart and it made me smile. She was the most warm hearted, sweet person. I would always get so excited when she would come visit! She is forever in our hearts. My mom tells me fun storys about her all the time. I look up to her, and wish that I can some day turn out to be half as good of a person as she was. I didnt get to know you for too long, but the time you spent in my life I will never forget. Please put my mother in your prayers. Emma Schurder, Barrington, Illinois
Dear Renee,Another September 11 has come and gone. I find myself trying not to think about it, but thoughts of you keep running thru my mind. Your AA family will always miss you!
Joni Williams, Baltimore, Maryland
My dear Renee.It the 2nd anniversary of that horrible day.I miss you so much but you live in my heart and memories and are in my eternal prayers.I wear your bracelet always and you are my angel when I fly at work. I know you have given me signs you are watching over me. I have felt your presence so deeply at times. You are now in a better world than which we live. One day we all will walk hand in hand in God's garden together again. I miss you so much. May God watch over your family and help them heal. your dear friend, Tina Newport Middletown, Delaware
Today is the 6 month anniversary. I am sitting at my computer in my office, the same place I did on that day. So today I am doing something different. I looked up someone who is the same age as me, exactly. And then I read everything on line about her. Wow, she was really well loved. I am sorry for your loss, we still feel it, here in Canada too, your war is our war, your loss is our loss, we are strong because you are, and believe in peace and brotherhood, the same as you do. Your neighbor to the north, sheds two tears for every one of yours.
Sherry Ballman, Winnipeg, Manitoba
It's been 5 month...I still hear Renee's voice each and everyday. I can see her in my mind's eye. I know we all have a crew of angels flying with us each and every day we put on the blue polyester...I miss you Renee. Thanks for the friendship and the memories
Betty Marzoa, Chester, Maryland
Renee May was my god mother. She was also fun to be around. I will never forget the sound of her voice and the great memories we had together. Brandon Worden, Escondido, California
I have the honor of paying tribute to David Charlebois. David was 39 years old on 9/11/01, he was the First Officer on American Airlines Flight 77. He was serving as copilot on that flight. He was survived by his partner of 14 years, Tom Hay, and his parents who live in Front Royal, Virginia. He attended Catholic services with his parents until his death. David helped carry the banner for the National Gay Pilots Association in the Millenium March on Washington in 2000 marching in uniform. He also helped raise money for the Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League. He will be remembered fondly by many friends for his kindness, loyalty and positive attitude. Here are some of the messages I found for David. I'm so sorry to his loved ones and friends, he sounded like an amazing person to know and love....
"He was handsome and happy and very centered," Travis White, a neighbor in Charlebois' Washington, D.C. neighborhood, told the Washington Post. "His life was the kind of life I wanted to have someday."
They got him David.... Rest my friend.
Dca crew member
David,I can still remember running into you at the gym on Monday 9/10/01 and as you always did, you had a big smile on your face and it was always very nice talking to you and getting to know you over those short two years. You had such a good heart and you are still very much missed. I still remember the last words you said to me. " I am leaving tomorrow for LA, I will see you when I get back". Stephen, Washington DC
Thank you for taking me around on career day to the airport when I was young. I'll never forget you. Elizabeth Kelley
I still miss you every day. I am so happy to have had you as my best friend. Love you always - Dianne Ihling, Reading, Kansas
I miss you very much my sweet friend!
Dave, I remember our pool side chats at River Run Apartments while we were attending Embry-Riddle. Thanks so much again for letting me borrow your vacuum cleaner all those many times. Remember my sister Val? She joined you in Heaven two years ago...bless you for all the great memories and your selfless actions
Ron LeBlanc, Bridgton, Maine
Uncle David was the shining star in our family. Whenever he walked into a room, it always brightened up. He always carried his head high with a smile on his face that would make anyone smile. We have so many fond memories with him growing up, and I can't believe that there will be no more memories to make....no more teaching me how to steal cookies out of the cookie jar and arrange them so Grandma wouldn't notice... I am thankful that we have Tom here to share and make memories with because he reminds me so much of my uncle. They are alike in so many ways. I will continue to love and miss you Uncle David...please continue watching over us.
Danielle Lamb, Stephens City
You are a loving Uncle. I love you very much and you are missed very much by all of us.
Angela Bryner, Winchester, Virginia
Your airline pilot brothers and sisters will not forget you David!
Captain Andrew McKinley, Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin
I flew with David only a couple of times and on the eve of this 5th Anniversary I do not, nor will I ever forget, the sacrifice he has made. It will not be in vain.On each and every flight I now make, I draw on his inner strength to prevent this from ever happening again.Rest well and peacefully my friend. Capt. Jay Monesterio, Florida
I very much miss Uncle David. I love him. Every memory that I have of him is treasured.

I have the honor of paying tribute to Jessica Sachs. Jessica was 23 years old on 9/11/01 and was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11. She worked at Price Waterhouse Coopers after graduating from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Her goal since her sophomore year had been to land a job at one of the top five accounting houses in the United States. She ended up having her choice, said her father, Stephen."A lot of people today live their lives with a lot of gray area, but for her, it was very black and white," he said. "She was a very determined, very strong young lady." She also was a devout Christian that started her own bible study and never missed Sunday service. "It was just one happy moment after another," her father said. "She wore Jesus on her sleeve, and there was nothing phony about that young lady."
Here are some messages and memories that have been left for Jessica and for her family on Legacy.com..... I'm sorry you lost her.
To the Sachs family....I wrote in here a few years ago.... I said I would not forget Jessica. I have not. I though of her the other night when the news broke about the murderer finally being dealt some measure of justice.I know it does not bring her back.... I hope it brings some measure comfort.... To know he is not around to torment or taunt. I pray you have found peace.....

May you finally rest in peace Jessica :(

I met Jessica at PwC in Boston. I had a few conversations with her but I'll always remember her unwavering faith in Jesus. She spoke passionately about her relationship with Him, which I know comforted her on Sept 11, 2001. Jessica, thank you for being a shining inspiration for others about truly living a life given to Christ. Ephesians 3: 5-6
You will never be forgotten. I will see you one day again in heaven. I had the pleasure of working with Jessica at UMASS with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. She was a woman of integretity and faith.
Stephen and Karen I hope you are well. I have been thinking of you a lot lately...five years later. Still hard to believe...
Goffstown, New Hampshire
Mr.& Mrs. Sachs, I met Jessica as a student at UMass and recently wrote some of my memories I had of Jessica, along with several other entries from MERCY house church. My deepest sympathies to your family today. I am having a hard time focusing at work today. I have been escaping the restroom to cry. I can't imagine the anguish you must feel, my heart truly goes out to you. I pray that you rest in the comfort of the Lord Jesus Christ, knowing that Jessica is living in a mansion that He has prepared for her in Heaven. This is God's promise, and I place my full faith in it! I am confident that God is using Jessica's testimony to touch individual lives for His glory.
I have the honor of paying tribute to Peter Hashem. Peter was 40 years old on 9/11/01. Peter was survived by his wife, Rita; two children. His mother and seven siblings. Hashem and his family moved to the Lawrence area from Lebanon in 1970. Peter was a senior software engineering manager at Teradyne, Inc. in Boston, MA, Peter was a devoted Maronite Catholic parishioner of St. Anthony’s Church and an active member of his community.
In 2002 Teradyne, Inc. announced the establishment of the Peter Hashem Memorial Scholarship. "Peter was a strong believer in the value of education," said George Chamillard, Teradyne chairman and CEO. "We hope this scholarship will, in some small way, honor his memory."The Peter Hashem Memorial Scholarship will be available annually to children, stepchildren and grandchildren of Teradyne employees, beginning with the 2003-2004 academic year.
Peter was loved and is missed by firends and family. I can't imagine their grief, I'm sorry. Here are some memories and messages that have been left for Peter over the years...
Peter, we will never forget. Not in nine years, or nine thousand. Amen, brother.
Joe T, Cohasset, Massachusetts
PeterMay you find yourself in the warm loving arms of God. There is peace and comfort there. Although we miss you very much, we hope to see you again. Abdo and Samaria
Years are passing,but we will never forget.
My, hard to believe it has been one year since the tragedy which took your Peter from you occurred. Just know that all of the Hashem family is always on my mind and in my heart. If we can be of any help during this painful anniversary time, don't hesitate to call and I'll be there for you. Peter is safe now and he looks down over each of you each day to give you the courage and strength to go on without him. You are a very unique family with an amazing bond; I thank God for giving that to each of you. Love, Martha & Family
To the Hashem family,It is January, 4 months after the tragedy and not one day goes by that Peter isn't in my thoughts and prayers. I see the many comments of my co-workers and I still find myself speechless, even after all this time. He was a wonderful person, funny, charming and fun to work with. He will never be forgotten by all of his friends at Teradyne. How lucky you are to have two carbon copies of him in your sons! If you ever need anything - all you have to do is ask. God Bless. Melinda Guarino
This message to Peter is one that I identify with the most as it's how I would feel:
That you are in heaven means you know who I am and remember the friendship we started one day, and which will last for eternity. I will never forget you. And I will never forgive those who murdered you.-VotingFemale
I have the honor of paying tribute to to Donald DiTullio. Don was 49 years old on 9/11/01. He was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11. He was a Harley fan and friend Sue Farnsworth said "I see you riding free and forever, wind blowing in your face, leaning into long smooth turns, spitting out the occasional bug." Don loved his girlfriend, Janis Lasden, country and western line dancing, Harley-Davidsons, his children, Jessica and James, and the rest of his tight-knit family. Sadly, Janis was on the flight with him, they were traveling to California for a vacation. Here are some very touching tributes that have been left for Don from family and friends, I'm so sorry that you lost him, he was obviously well loved:
We knew Don from Line dancing at the Salem Moose lodge in MA. He was an outstanding Line Dancer and brought joy to those who watched him dance. Line Dancing isn't the same without him. He is greatly missed by many. I am sure that Don would like others to enjoy life as much as he did. He always wore a smile....and a cowboy hat.. He'll never be forgotten. He is thought of often, and our hearts are with his family!Sherry & Sue

At last justice has been served. It's been a long time coming. We feel a sense of relief but that doesn't bring you and Janis back. Think of you all the time. Keep sending those message; they are well received and honored. Mom is well and misses you daily. All my love Janice

Dear Uncle Donnie,We finally heard the words we've been waiting for. Osama Bin Laden is officially dead. It was announced on Sunday night, May 1, 2011. President Obama spoke about the mission and how diligent they were to find Osama. One quote that stuck out from his speech was: Disrupt, Dismantle, Defeat. That's exactly what our military (Navy SEALs) carried out. Osama hid for 9 years, 7 months and 20 days but he finally met his fate and the USA found its justice. On another note, I received the signs you sent me. Your first sign was Friday night through a scratch ticket. The winning numbers on the ticket were 9 and 11. What were the chances of me getting that when a bunch of tickets were handed out before I received the one I was given. The second sign was Saturday night. I was driving w/the kids and looked up at the sky and there was a shooting star going over us. I hope you still give me and others your signs. We love getting them because it shows that you're still with us even though we can't see you. We all love and miss you. I hope you and Janis are dancing the nights away. Love always,Colleen
Hi Don: Watching the memorial service from NY. Seems like yesterday. Watched home movies of when we were kids and missing you more and more. You are always with us. Love and miss you. Janice
Hi Uncle Donnie - Wanted you to know that you continue to be missed. You would be proud of Nana - how strong she has been even though her heart hurts and she misses you so much. As Colleen said, keep sending the signs...All our love,Ellen, Kevin, Connor, Collin & Colton "Donald"
Hi Don: Thinking of you as the 8th anniversary is approaching. Not going to be a good day. Another birthday has gone by- don't like the numbers. Visiting with Jan and George and remembering you and Janis paddling off in the paddle boat to visit your friends. I think of you all the time. Love & Miss you much Mom
Hi Don: Happy Birthday! M&M's not disappearing as fast as they used to. I keep the dish filled anyway. Guess what - - I got sick-- imagine that!I had pneumonia, but I'm fine now. Want another guess? Joanna and Janice are suddenly becoming "parents". Stay close, I may need some help. Thinking of you on your birthday. Love and miss you. Mom
Hi Donnie,I miss the country western dancing with you and Joanna at the KOC.Love,Cousin Donna Happy New Year!from Donna, Rob, Dave & Paula
