Published in Jan.30, 2002, issue

John died Sept. 11, 2001, in NYC in the attack on the World Trade Center. He was a Nasdaq trader at Fred Alger Management, a position he had held only for a few months, after working for several years for Harvey, Young and Yurman.

John came to Princeton from St. Anthony's HS in Huntington Station, N.Y. At Princeton, John played on the lacrosse team, and was a member of Cap and Gown Club. He was known to most of his classmates as "Stinky," and will be best remembered by them as someone with an easy smile who reveled in good times with his friends. "He would drop anything to have fun with his friends €“ especially to have fun with his friends," said David Shefferman '92.

His senior year, John played a key role in the Tigers' winning the lacrosse national championship. In a tie game with one man down, he intercepted a pass that enabled the Tigers to return to offense €“ and score the overtime goal that captured the victory.

He is survived by his father, John, brother Matthew, sisters Amy and Erin, and a beloved nephew, Conor. The class extends its deep sympathy to his family.

Thinking of you a lot these days, Stinky, as we approach the 10-year anniversary of that horrible day. You are not forgotten.
