Description Cantor Fitzgerald business card for Jason M. Sekzer. The business card identifies Jason Sekzer as Vice President of Cantor Fitzgerald at One World Trade Center.
Historical Notes Manhattan-born Jason Sekzer lived in Forest Hills, Queens, with his wife, Natalie. Jason spent childhood summers at Camp Sussex in New Jersey, then worked there as a chef. After joining Cantor Fitzgerald, where he was a vice president, Jason stayed on the camp’s board and promoted its annual charity golf outing. On September 11, Jason was at work on the North Tower’s 103rd floor. He was 31 years old.
Curator's Comment Business cards were ubiquitous survivors of the 9/11 attacks. Most of those in the Museum’s collection were found in recovered wallets and pocketbooks or retrieved from the paper debris that fell from the towers. Their variety is indicative of the multiplicity of companies and activities anchored at the World Trade Center.
Victims’ relatives and employees of businesses formerly located at the World Trade Center have also donated pristine business cards found at home or in jacket pockets after September 11, 2001. Such cards were often retained as souvenirs of the destroyed landmark or as evidence that placed loved ones at the World Trade Center. Business cards tied to passengers aboard the hijacked aircrafts were also found at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon crash site, and in the impact area of Flight 93 near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
