I visited the DC Roe website the other day and saw that there was a bit of a dilemma.
It seems that there were a number of blogs/URL’s that turned out to be invalid.
This left many victims of 9/11 without a tribute.
It was optional to request a second victim but I felt I had to.
The man you see above is Steven D. Jacoby. Steve was the COO (Chief Operating Officer) of a paging and wireless messaging service called Metrocall.
He was on his way to Los Angeles departing from Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C. on American Airlines flight 77, the plane that struck the Pentagon.
An online guestbook provides some nice insight into who Steve Jacoby really was.
From all that I’ve read, it seems he was a man that broke the mold of the ‘traditional’ business executive by his humility and uncanny ability to relate to his fellow worker.
He was a friend first, a boss second.
Steve left behind a wife and three children.
I hope and pray that in his final hour he was able to utilize the communications company he worked so hard to make successful.
I pray he was able to just say goodbye.
