Date of Birth: November 26, 1977
Department: Institutional Equities
Position: Sales Trader
A graduate of the University of Scranton in 2000, Charlie started working for Cantor Fitzgerald on the Institutional Equities desk in June of that year. His amazing personality and passion to be a hard worker made him an instant success. He had a unique charisma that made others want to be around him… Charlie could always make you laugh. These qualities allowed him to accomplish many things at the young age of 23 that most guys don’t get to until about 30 in their Wall Street careers. The kid “had it.”
He was a loving brother, a loving son, and everyone’s best friend. His determination to succeed was like no other and all he ever wanted was to make his parents, brothers, sisters, and friends proud. He brought the word “confidence” to a new level… if there was a job to be done and Charlie was at the helm, the job would get done and be done well. He was one of a kind and he’ll be missed every second of the day. However he will never be forgotten because “nobody ever forgets meeting Charlie.”
Sean Heeran, brother
What could I say about my twin brother Charlie? I could probably write a book on his 23 years with us. He lived each day to the fullest treating it like it was his last and it showed in his work with Cantor Fitzgerald. Tragically on September 11th he made his peace with God, along with the greatest group of guys I have ever met. I picture it now where everybody sat on the trading desk and it brings a smile to my face because that is all they did up there was SMILE. One unique quality about Charlie was that he always tried to make people better at what they did, even if he didn’t know how to do it, he would somehow bring that person into contact with someone who did know how to do it. He was the most giving, unselfish person that I have ever known. You always knew when Charlie was out, that there was a round of beers heading your way. His main goal when he went out was to make people laugh. He never let people feel uncomfortable when he was in the room, always introducing people to one another. His $150 beach chair and his long stretched out stories on the beach will surely be missed by our friends in Rockaway. Charlie adored his little cousins, always showering them with gifts, and playing with them on the beach in Rockaway. The one day that I have kids of my own, they will always know who Uncle Charlie was-A Hero.
I will always remember him as a young eager man setting the highest goals for himself and always reminding us that he would be a millionaire by our 30th birthday. Charlie I love and I will never forget the unbelievable memories you and I shared together. I know you will always look out for Mom, Dad, Sean, Annemarie, Bernadette, and myself. Take care and may you rest in peace with your coworkers.
