9-11 Victim Remembered--Joann Tabeek
(This post will be promoted to the top several times this weekend and on Monday, so scroll down for new content.)
I got the idea for this from this website
. They are looking for 2,996 bloggers to each commemorate one of the victims of 9-11.
Joann Tabeek was a vice president and partner at Cantor Fitzgerald and was working in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. She was 41 years old, and had worked there for 20 years already. She had a daughter from her first marriage, Krystal, who was 11 years old. She was engaged to be married on Christmas Day, 2001, to Vincent Milotta. She lived on Staten Island and planned to retire in three more years to Palm Beach, Florida.
This article contains excellent information
about Joann:Ms. Tabeek, 41, a vice president and partner at Cantor Fitzgerald, on the 103rd floor, was on the phone with Mr. Milotta when the first plane hit Tower 1. "Oh, God, a plane went through the building," she said. "That's it. I'm not going to work in New York City anymore."
She was in WTC 1, and above the impact zone. Nobody from that location made it out alive.
