|Timothy G Grazioso
Date of Birth: October 4, 1958
Department: Over the Counter Trading
Timmy worked for Cantor Fitzgerald for 12 years. At the time of the attacks, he was the Chief Operating Officer of Over the Counter Trading and Head NASDAQ trader.
In losing Tim (and John), their parents lost two of their three children. Timmy is survived by Debbie, his beautiful wife of 15 years, and their two beautiful children, Lauren and Briana, 12-year-old identical twin girls. Timmy dedicated his life to making a better future for Debbie and the girls, a future free of worry and laden with the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. Anyone who knew Timmy knew how very proud he was of his daughters. He was a loving and dedicated father and a devoted husband to Debbie. Timmy loved making his daughters breakfast, loved making them laugh, and loved waking them up by tickling them in the morning. Even at the age of 12, Timmy carried them from their bedrooms, downstairs to the breakfast table. There is nothing that Tim wouldn’t do for his wife or children, nothing. Timmy was also a dedicated and loyal friend and brother. He was a loving son. He was sweet, kind, thoughtful, and sensitive. Tim was the most modest man you could ever meet and was thoughtful and generous beyond words. He always loved a good laugh. When Lauren, was just one year old, she was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes. Tim then devoted much of his time to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and was Vice President of Fund Raising.
For those of us who had the good fortune to know Tim, we will forever miss his warmth and sensitivity. We will also miss that smirk of his. We could never replace what has been lost for his children; the void is just too great. Because they are children, they are resilient. In time, their hearts will mend, but a piece will be forever missing. The only thing we could do now is to try to give these children the lives their father would have wanted them to have.
To help fulfill the dreams that Tim had for his beautiful daughters and to make their future just a little brighter and less uncertain, Tim’s sister, Carolee, has established a trust fund for Lauren and Briana (Tim Grazioso’s Children Trust Fund). Anyone wishing to help fulfill the dreams of Tim and make a better future for his children could do so by sending contributions to the educational trust at:
