Description Recovered Marsh business card for Jonathan C. Randall. The business card identifies Jonathan Randall as Vice President at Marsh Technology & Information Services at One World Trade Center. The card is dirty, scratched, and dented.
Historical Notes Jonathan Randall was a resident of Brooklyn and the father of an 11-year-old daughter. On weekends, he took her to horseback riding lessons in Prospect Park and volunteered at his church as an assistant treasurer. Jonathan also led a Bible study group at Marsh & McLennan, where he was a manager. On September 11, he was at work on the 95th floor of the North Tower. Jonathan was 42 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.
