  Jennifer Mazzotta

Date of Birth: April 12, 1978
Department: Operations

I sit here today to reflect on my beautiful daughter and all the joy she brought everyone she touched. Jennifer is the oldest of my three children and has been an inspiration to us all. Since Jennifer started walking at the age of eight and a half months there was no stopping her. Always a quick learner and independent.
Her brother and sister were very close to Jennifer and they were always there for each other. Jennifer was the first one in the family to graduate college, something she was very proud of as well as her family. Jennifer always set goals in her life and planned everything. She always said she going to make something of herself, and she did. She was so proud of her job at Cantor Fitzgerald and was determined to move up quickly in the company. She was with the company for a little over a year, right after she graduated St. Joseph College in Brooklyn in 2000.

Jennifer and her fiance Anthony Roman were ready to plan their Wedding Day now that she had her career started and he was in the police academy. They were together almost six years. Their first big date was Jennifer’s High School prom; she graduated from Grover Cleveland High School. Jennifer and Anthony were inseparable, a beautiful couple that planned and worked so hard for their future together.

Besides being a loving daughter, sister and fiancee Jennifer also acquired many friends in her life. Her best friend Catherine Browne and Jennifer were like sisters more than friends and is deeply missed by her. Wherever Jenn went she made friends along the way. She also made dear friends at Cantor, especially Christina who has also now been there for me when I needed to talk to someone; she was always there to listen.

In closing, let me say this is the hardest thing I will ever have to do. Words could not express how I miss you Jennifer. I know I’ve always told you how proud I am of you and how much I love you but I wish I had one more day to tell you again. To let you know that you are an inspiration to us all for all you accomplished.

Jennifer is also missed by her grandfather, grandmother, numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, her godchild Kayla, and especially her brother-in-law John Bonetti and Alyssa Bonetti, Jennifer’s first niece, whom she never got to see. Till I’m with you again your love and your memories will be forever in my heart.
Love, Mom and Dad

  • NEVER DID I THINK THERE WOULD EVER COME A TIME THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PUT TOGETHER A TRIBUTE TO MY NIECE JENNIFER; A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG LADY WHO MADE HER FAMILY ALL SO VERY PROUD. JENNIFER NOT ONLY STRIVED TO BE THE BEST SHE COULD BE AT NO MATTER WHAT SHE DID; SHE HAD AN ENDEARING AND ENERGETIC PERSONALITY THAT WAS INFECTIOUS TO EVERYONE WHO MET HER. HER SELF-MOTIVATION AND DETERMINATION FOR SUCCESS MADE HER BOTH A JOY AND INSPIRATION TO BE AROUND. SHE ADORED HER FAMILY, BOTH HER MOM AND DAD AND WAS VERY LOYAL; IN ADDITION, JENN WAS ESPECIALLY ATTACHED TO HER SISTER MICHELLE AND BROTHER CHARLES…WHOM SHE HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM AS ALSO HER OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS. THIS TRIBUTE IS NOT MEANT AS A WAY OF SAYING GOOD-BYE. THIS TRIBUTE IS A WAY OF TELLING MY SWEET, PRECIOUS NIECE HOW MUCH IT SADDENS MY HEART THAT LIFE COULDN’T ALLOW US TO BECOME AS CLOSE AS AN AUNT AND NIECE SHOULD’VE BEEN. BUT, JENN HAD SO MANY AUNTS AND UNCLES AND COUSINS; WE JUST WERE NOT AFFORDED THE TIME TO MAKE OUR RELATIONSHIP GROW. BUT IN SINCEREST PRAYER AND HOPE, I KNOW JENNIFER AND I WILL ONE DAY GET THE OPPORTUNITY AGAIN TO BE TOGETHER ETERNALLY AND HAVE THE CHANCE WE NEVER GOT ON THIS EARTH. UNTIL THAT TIME JENNIFER, KNOW THAT NO ONE CAN EVER TAKE YOUR PLACE! NOW OR EVER!
    YOUR LOVING AUNT MARIA AND DEVOTED COUSIN RICHARD HAYDEN (KISSES AND HUGS)
    P.S. KEEP SMILING JENN…THIS IS HOW YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED

  • When I think of Jennifer I think of a shining star. She had a wonderful contagious personality. It was hard not to feel good when around her. Always the planner, she outlined her life as it was supposed to be. The “American Dream”, buy a home, spend every available moment with the love her life, Anthony, and someday become a wife and mother. I thank God for allowing me the great fortune of having had her in my life. Jenn, when I gaze at the evening sky I search for the brightest star and once found, know that’s where you are, looking over us all with that wonderful smile. I Love You and miss you. Until we meet again, Aunt Lynda

  • Hi pretty girl,
    Jen, I miss you and everything about you more than any words could ever express. My life has forever been altered, for the better, just for having known you. U were the epitome of an “angel” and I know that’s why God called you to him. I miss you each and every day that I come to work and know you won’t be there. I have the picture of us on my desk so I can see you guys every day. We were supposed to go to dinner that Thursday but God did not let it happen. I would have given anything to have just spoken to U one last time. I speak to your family quite often and to Kayla, of course, to make sure she is well. We weren’t supposed to split up…I remember how we cried like children when they moved your desk 3 rows over…just the fact of not sitting right next to each other crushed us. I dream of you often and in each dream you tell me you are ok and that you are just coming to say “hi”. I miss your smile and your laugh and bothering you about the way U and Lynne scarfed down food. I MISS YOU. PLease take care of everyone up there and hold my place until I see you all again.
    Love always, your forever friend, Christina

    Christina, Dear friend/co-worker
  • Jenn this is for the 3 of you. Of course you already know that I did not right it but I had someone who understands how I feel without you write it for me. I love you pretty girl:

    Where are you now
    I think about you everyday
    I think of how you went away
    I feel the loss deep inside
    I feel I want to run and hide
    I miss you at work and on the phone
    I miss you and know I’m not alone
    An angel is what you are
    A rainbow of hope, A shooting star
    A sunset, A sunrise, A soft spring rain
    The memory of you washes away the pain
    So when we miss you and the sadness starts
    We can smile, cause we know,
    YOU ARE HERE IN OUR HEARTS.

    Christina, Dear friend/coworker
  • HI, MY NAME IS JEANNE JONES, THE AUNT OF MY BELOVED NIECE JENNIFER. A YOUNG LADY WHO WAS THE INSPIRATION TO ALL. SHE WAS A VERY CARING, AND LOVELY YOUNG LADY. SHE LOVED LIFE TO THE FULLEST. SHE WORKED VERY HARD AT A VERY YOUNG AGE FOR THE THINGS SHE WANTED IN LIFE. SHE HAD A FORTUNE IN DREAMS AND WAS GOING TO ACHIEVE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM. SHE WAS WELL ON HER WAY; HER NEXT STEP WAS TO MARRY THE BOY OF HER DREAMS, WHO SHE FOUND 6YRS. AGO BY THE NAME OF ANTHONY. HE TOO FOUND HIS DREAM, JENNIFER. TOGETHER THEY HAD THE WORLD IN THEIR HANDS AND WERE GOING TO SPEND THE REST OF THEIR LIVES TOGETHER. THEY LIVED FOR EACH OTHER. UNFORTUNATELY, JENNIFER’S LIFE WAS TAKEN AT A VERY YOUNG AGE AND HER BOYFRIEND’S HEART WAS CRUSHED. HER MOM, DAD, SISTER, BROTHER, HER ENTIRE FAMILY WAS DEVASTATED. JENNIFER’S LIFE WAS TAKEN IN A VERY UNFAIR AND CRUEL WAY. A DEVASTATING AND TRAGIC TERROIST ATTACK. ON A LIFE OF AN INNOCENT YOUNG LADY, AS OF MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE ALSO. WE ALL WILL PRAY FOR HER, AND I KNOW THAT GOD WILL TAKE GOOD CARE OF HER, BECAUSE SHE WAS AN ANGEL HERE ON EARTH AND I KNOW SHE IS AN ANGEL NOW. MY DEAR NIECE, I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU DEARLY. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU. AND TO ALL WHO KNEW JENNIFER, PRESERVE THE MEMORY OF JEN, BECAUSE SHE WAS EVERYTHING TO US AND AN INSPIRATION TO ALL. ALSO, A GREAT PART OF EVERYONE’S LIFE.

    JEANNE JONES, AUNT
  • 6 months have gone by and still my days are corrupted by tears. Not one day has gone by that I have not thought about Jenn. Jennifer and I had gone to school together from kindergarten through high school-her vivacious smile never changing as the years went by. To say she was a special person is an understatement, in as much as 100 words on this page could never really be an appropriate tribute to such a wonderful person. The best I can do is continue to pray for her and her family and to let her family know how obvious it was to everyone around her that Jennifer loved her family very deeply. Her beauty was matched only by her strength, kindness and character-a testament no doubt to her loving parents. I will never forget you Jenn. As the tears once again fall down my face, my heart aches for her family and boyfriend, and for a world that is not as great as when this angel was gracing its face

  • When Jennifer was first born, I held her in my arms. And I remember this to this day. I’ve seen Jennifer and her sister, Michelle and brother Charlie over the years. Not a lot, but often enough to see how she grew from a little baby to such a beautiful, beautiful child. The last time I saw Jennifer was at her granparent’s 50th Anniversary party. What a wonderful person she grew to be. Sweet. Kind. Such a joy to her family. I remember her Aunt Maria and Grandmother boasting about how proud they were of her. When Aunt Maria told me that Jennifer was gone, my heart just broke into a million pieces. The pain was unfathomable…and my heart bleeds for her Mom and Dad, Cathy and Billy, her sister and brother and all of her family. I’m so very sorry that Jennifer is no longer part of this world, but with our faith in God, we must know that she will always be part of our world. God bless you, Jennifer. You’re in a beautiful place now. How lucky you are, despite our tears.
    My love always. “Aunt” Kacey.

  • Jennifer, I miss you and all the fun times we shared together since childhood. They will forever remain in my heart. I especially miss the times o spent picking on me when I was with your sister Michelle. You have left an inspiration, not only on me, but all of us. My heart and prayers goes out to her mother Cathy, father Billy, sister Michelle, and brother Charlie including the rest of her family. Jennifer was a very determined, smart, courageous and intelligent woman with many goals ahead of her especially working on her dreams to marry Anthony. All the words cannot express how dearly you are missed; a beautiful woman who left and angelic smile on many people. Until we meet again, you will be in my heart and prayers

    Christine Story, Dear friend of family
  • Jennifer, as you can see, was such a beautiful girl, filled with life and ambition. I met her once when I went up to visit my husband John at Christmas time; we also spoke several times when I called on another line. When we met, I believe she had her godchild or niece with her and I had my son; you could tell she loved children. She had a personality so sincere and friendly, I felt I had known her for years. I would always ask John about her and he had said she is very smart and dedicated. Jennifer is definitely going to go far in the company; he liked her so much. My condolences and heartfelt sympathy go out to the family. This tragedy is like a nightmare that you can’t wake up from. When I cry for my husband, I am also crying for Jennifer and all the other young, talented people that were part of this life. R.I.P.

My heart and prayers goes out to her mother Cathy, father Billy, sister Michelle, brother Charlie and the rest of her family.
    Jennifer wa someone who lived her life to the fullest, making herself advanced as fast as possible. Jennifer was like a cousin to me as well as the rest of her family. No matter where you were Jennifer always made you feel comfortable whether it was giving advice, helping you or just having fun. Her honesty, strength, humor, love and much more will never leave our hearts nor this earth. She was well liked and respected bymany people and would never judge another individual.
    Jennifer was a very determined, smart, courageous and intelligent woman with many goals ahead of her, especially planning her dream to marry Anthony. All the words in the world in the world cannot express how much you are missed; a beautiful woman with an angelic smile. Until we meet again, you will be in my heart and prayers.

  • I was deeply saddened to have heard of what happened to Jennifer. I worked with Jen at Key Food. She was a very sweet, caring and courteous person. I will always remember her with that great big happy smile, her playing with the children that came into the store and giving them candy but most of all the kindness that she showed everyone. My sincerest condolences to all her family and friends.

    Caroline M., friend
  • Every morning that I would walk into work I couldn’t wait to be greeted by Jen’s huge smile and the wink of her eye. She would say things like, “Good morning sunshine, how were the bed bugs?” I don’t think it was in her nature to be anything other than the most joyful and most fun-loving person I have ever met. Her personality and her charm were second to none.
    When Jen first started at Cantor I worked closely with her and saw that aside from her wonderful nature she had an intelligence that I could only wish for in my dreams. Any work that was put in front of her she blew right thru with the easiest of efforts. Her working demeanor prompted myself and Jim McNeice to make sure that she moved up from the P&S desk to our Settlements group. I was supposed to train her at her new settlements job, but I must say that not one ounce of training took place. She stepped right in like she had worked for us for years. Jimmy and myself were delighted that we had her pegged as THE person to fill the void that was left in our department.
    I can still recall our last conversation word for word when I called from Florida the friday before 9/11 to see how she was doing with all her work. Since then she has visited me a couple of times in my dreams. It always ends the same with her resting her hand on my shoulder, giving me her wink, so confidently as always, telling me she’s ok.
    Rest well Jen, we miss you always…

  • Jennifer was a lovely young woman who had a smile for anyone and everyone. She loved her family very much and was very much loved in return. I remember the days when she’d pick up Charles from PS 229 and he was so excited to see his big sister. I’ll always remember the pride in her mother’s eyes when she told me of Jenn’s graduation from college and of her success in the world of high finance. She will never be forgotten. God Bless.
    Love, The O’Boyle Family

  • I worked with Jenn at Ket Food in Maspeth. She would always know how to make people smile and how to make my father Marty get in a great mood with her quick wit. My fondest memories of her was the time I would bring my son Kyle into the store and she would tell him how cute he was and try to kiss him. This went on for a few years. I asked Kyle who is 10 now what he remembers about Jenn. His answer was, “She was very nice…but why did she want to marry me?” Love, Jan

  • I have so many wonderful memories of Jennifer from the time we spent together at St. Joseph’s College. She always had a smile on her face and always went out of her way to make me laugh. At 101 nights Jennifer told me she didn’t know what to leave me. Jennifer, you left me with more than you will ever know. I think about you every day and always say a prayer for you. The picture we took together at graduation is a constant reminder of what a special person you are. I treasure that photo. I know you have your wings now and are guiding us all. I miss and love you. Just know we are always thinking about you.

  • Dear Jenn,
    Happy birthday in heaven to our beautiful angel.

    Lonely is the home without you,
    Life to us is not the same;
    All the world would be like heaven,
    If we could have you back again.
    A light is from our household gone,
    A voice we loved is still,
    A place is vacant in our home,
    That never can be filled.
    May the God of Love and Mercy,
    Care our loved one who is gone,
    And bless with consolation,
    Those left to carry on.
    The happy hours we onced enjoyed,
    How sweet their memory still,
    But death has left a vacant place,
    This world can never fill.
    How dearly we loved you,
    And prayed you might live,
    But Jesus just beckoned,
    And we had to give.
    God give us strength to bear it,
    And courage to fight the blow,
    What it has meant to lose you,
    God alone will ever know.

    Our lives were changed forever on September 11th but our love for
    you, and our precious memories with remain in our hearts forever. Happy
    Birthday baby.

    All Our
    Love,
    Mom and Dad

  • On the morning of Sept 11, I was awakened by a phone call from my sister. I live in Vancouver BC and so it was about 5:30am. I turned on the TV and couldn’t stop watching for the whole day. What a tragedy, what a loss. As horrible as it was though it seemed so far away.

    Tonight I stumbled onto this tribute for Jennifer and cried. I went and hugged my 3 daughters and we prayed for your family. I can’t imagine your pain, but I will make sure that I cherish my girls more everyday because of what you have written about Jennifer.

    Thank you for sharing your tragedy with us, we are better because of a girl that we didn’t know and the love of her family.

  • Jen was a great person to work with. She knew her job and never gave any one any problems. When ever there was a problem with one of my trades. She would always let me know as soon as the problem happened. Jen was fun to work with. She never had a harsh word for any one. Before she was moved over to the clearance area she did P&S comparison. She worked accross the desk from me. I could see that her customers had a lot of respect for them. She would go out of her way to help them. I remember when she bought girl scout cookies from for my daughter. After about a month when the cookies hadn’t come in yet. She would ask me in the most sweetest way possible where her cookies were. Jen would have gone very far in the corporate ladder at Cantor. But unfortunately her life just some many others at Cantor was cut short. I always wanted for Jen to work in my area. Which was the mortgage back area because I knew that she would be someone who you could depend up on to do the job the proper way. Jen I miss you and I wish you were still here working with us. Mr and Mrs. Mazzotta you raised a wonderful daughter. Who was kind hearted and intelligent also. God bless you both and your whole family. My sympathy go out to the Mazzotta family on this time of need.

  • Dear Jen,

    Nine months have passed and not a day goes by that I don’t think that we will hear something about you! This whole thing just doesn’t seem correct. I can’t imagine that one day you could be here and the next day you are not! It is far removed from comprehending………………………

    I thought I had a pretty good handle on this, but NO! time does not heal a broken heart nor do I expect it too! It has all been so devastating loosing you that it almost doesn’t seem right that we go on without you! We are here Jen, but not without a heaviness in our hearts to see your pretty face and warm smile again!

    Your previous little niece Alyssa would have brought you such joy! And soon you would have been getting married to Anthony, your forever sweetheart!

    I want to thank you Jen , with all my heart for not only being a sweet and gentle part of my life, but for your forgiving and loving nature………………………No one will ever compare with your thoughtfulness and giving attitude!

    Until that day comes when I see your face again; I just want you to know now and forever how truly greatful and proud I was and am to be called your Aunt!

    Yours, Aunt Maria Hayden

  • Dearest Jennifer,

    It’s been ten heartwrenching months without you and I miss you more and more every day. I wake up thinking of you and go to sleep calling your name. I love you so much. I think of all your dreams you had and I enjoyed watching you achieve all you set out to do. You always made us proud. I miss your beautiful smile and endless enthusiasm. It is still hard to except you will never be coming home. My heart aches for you and will till the day we are together again. And until then your love and memories will be held within my heart.

    Love forever,Mom

    I miss you and you are in my thoughts always,
    Love, Chris

  • Jen-
    I have come here many times and read these beautiful tributes. I remember sitting next to you in so many classes in St. Joes and you were always the sweetest! I remember having conversations with you about the future, teaching vs. professional, what our degree would do for us. But I know one thing…my degree never prepared me for this. I worked right across from the WTC and knew so many at Cantor. I would do anything to be back down there and run into you outside or at lunch. But we will meet again. God Bless!

  • I was lucky enough to have known Jenn. Words can not begin to describe how special she was and will always be in my heart. With her sincerity, her angelic smile and her joyful spirit she touched my life, but most important she lifted my spirits with her kind words when I needed most. My heart is crushed because I couldn’t be there for her the same way she was for me. My prayers/heart are with her family. Be proud, Jenn was an amazing human being. She will be much regarded and missed. God bless her soul.

  • Thank you for sharing with the world just how special Jennifer was. God bless you all.

    Be Patient with Life

    Be patient with life, despite its cruelty.
    Often it seems careless of our pain,
    But just as often brings us hope again.

    Remember, I wanted happiness for you.
    Under every foolish word this still was true.
    Be happy, then, without, as you would with me.
    In your life many sweet events remain.
    Not in anguish, but in joy remember me.

    Alison, Stranger
  • My heart goes out to your family and you fiance. From reading all the tributes, you seemed like a sweet young girl. I never knew you but I remember seeing you often when you worked in Key Food on Grand Avenue. I couldn’t believe when I saw your picture at the bus stop in front of Our Lady of Hope. I remember saying to myself she looks really familiar. Needless to say from talking to some people, I remembered where I saw you. You were so young and pretty. I am so sorry for you and for your whole family. God has a plan for all of us and yours must be, to be an “Angel” and watch over your family. I think they really need that right now. Again, my heart and prayers go out to all your family and friends and especially your boyfriend.

  • A sister is someone more special than words. She is love mixed with friendship; the best things in life. She is so much inner beauty blended together with an outward appearance that brings smile to your heart. Together you’ve shared some very special moments. She’s a perspective on the past and a million memories that will always last.

    A sister is a hand within your hand; she’s often the only one who understands. She is honesty and trust enfolded with love. She is a helper, a guide, and a feeling, deep inside that makes you wonder what you would ever do without her. In so many ways, no one is loved so dearly.

    – Carey Martin

    Jenn,

    It’s been one heart breaking year without you. I love you and miss you more than words can say. Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for being my best friend.
    Where ever you are I want to be, when god says it’s time for me, so please save a place for me. Until we meet again.

    Love always,
    Michelle

    Michelle, Sister
  • Dearest Jennifer:

    It has taken me such a long time to write something about you, which has been the hardest thing to do. I was friends with your sister Michelle and her friend Christine when I first met you. I remember all the good times we all had together in school and then working together in Key Food. My heart and prayers goes out to your mother Cathy, father Billy, sister Michelle, brother Charlie, fiancée Anthony and the rest of her family. I use to live in Maspeth with my grandmother, but now I am living on my own in Rockaway for the past year.

    One year ago you were taken away from all of us forever and the pain is so hard to bear. You brought so much joy and happiness to everyone you touched throughout your life. It has been a year without you and everyday I think of you and wonder how you are. You have been such a wonderful influence in my life and I greatly appreciate that. This has been the hardest year for me to get through since I lost you and many other people that I have come in contact with over the years, friends, family members, teammates and coaches.

    Jennifer, you were a very special person to many people. You had such a warm, caring, giving, and beautiful soul that everyone recognized as soon as they met you. I have many memories of you that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I admit there were times when I didn’t want to be bothered by you, but you just came right up to me to either pinched me on the arm or hit me kidingly. One thing I will always remember is that you always had a smile on your face every morning, winked your eye at others, and even had many funny phrase each time we saw each other. I can’t remember ever seeing you upset or mad. I have learned so much from you in such a short amount of time, only about 12 years. I remember times that you were really tough on me and acted like a bigger sister, even though you were only a few months older then I. You always took charge of matters and tried to make them always better. That was your nature and it makes me really proud to have known a person like you in my lifetime.

    My experience with you has been an adventure. I also tell people that you were like a caregiver who never stopped. The time I had with you was very special. Times when we planned with your sister and friends in High School that we were going to cut school but never did. Walking to school some mornings, playing around, getting cookies and chocolate milk in the morning on the corner before meeting Laurie at her house on the way to school. Every time it was a birthday, holiday or just to show you cared you always gave someone something. I remember you always writing in my cards dear Basketball Star. You were a character with your own style. And I would never change anything about you.

    I miss you very much Jennifer and I do hope that you are fine up there. I know you do not want us to cry for you, but it is really hard not to when we think of you and all that you were becoming. Deep inside my heart is shattered due to the lose of an angel. My tears still fall every time I talk about you to my boyfriend Gilbert who wishes that he could have met you. Out of this whole bad situation came out something for all of us, we must now live up to our dreams and goals the same way that you did. We must live life to the fullest, and enjoy what we have, because when it is gone there is no more hello’s, I love you and wish you sweet dreams.

    May the Lord stay with you and also help us get through this tough time in our lives. I feel you around me sometimes and I wish that I could just talk to you one more time to tell you that I love you and miss you dearly. I never got to say goodbye to you Jenn, but now is the time I have to say till we meet again because goodbyes are forever. You became the sister I never had. I know I will see you again, though it may not be soon.
    God Bless you and Protect you always,
    Love Always,

  • Hi Jenn,

    What words can I use now to describe how things are doing since 9/11? Me personally, I still wait for you! I look so forward to our time together in the future. I see you in the most incredible place right now that my mind would let me imagine! There’s a hole in my heart Jenn, that only you can fill! Right now I can’t see clear enough to finish this! I don’t cry for you very often, but when I do, I can’t seem to stop! Pray for us all Jenn! Pray that God continues to confort us and encourage us to know that one day we will all be together and it will be for a million times 23 years! I love you my angel………Aunt Maria

    I know in my heart that you and the memories you’ve left behindd will continue to comfort, inspire, and encourage all those who knew you and loved you.

    Goodnite Sweet Angel!

  • I still think about you every day Jenn, and what a terrible tragedy it is that you were taken from us. I dont think the pain will ever leave me. I know I will never forget you. Please watch over me and protect me from up in heaven, with all the other angels with you.

  • MY HUSBAND AND I LIVE IN MASPETH, AND EVERY NOW AND THEN I SEE YOUR MOTHER OR YOUR AUNT ON THE AVENUE OR IN A STORE. THEY DON’T KNOW ME, BUT I KNOW THEM BECAUSE I ATTENDED YOUR MEMORIAL SERVICE AT ST. STANS. I PRAY FOR YOU AND FOR YOUR FAMILY AND WILL ALWAYS DO SO. WHENEVER I SEE YOUR MOTHER, I WANT TO APPROACH HER AND TELL HER THAT YOU WERE SO SPECIAL-EVEN TO STRANGERS LIKE ME WHO ONLY CROSSED PATHS WITH YOU ON A CHECK-OUT LINE IN KEY FOOD FROM TIME TO TIME. I WANT TO TELL HER HOW MY MOTHER AND I WOULD ONLY GO ON THE LINE THAT YOU CASHIERED BECAUSE YOU WERE SO QUICK, FUNNY, AND SWEET. I WANT TO TELL HER THAT EVEN THOUGH I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WELL, I SAW HOW MUCH YOU STOOD OUT FROM THE REST. YOU SHINED. WHEN YOU GRADUATED COLLEGE AND LEFT KEY FOOD, YOU WERE GREATLY MISSED BY THE CUSTOMERS. MY MOTHER AND I WERE HAPPY FOR YOU WHEN WE HEARD THAT YOU WERE WORKING IN THE CITY. WE KNEW THAT YOU WERE GOING TO BE SOMEONE IMPORTANT ONE DAY. AFTER SEPTEMBER 11TH WHEN I SAW YOUR PHOTO IN THE WINDOW OF A STORE, MY HEART BROKE. I THINK OF YOU EVERY DAY, AND BELIEVE WITH ALL MY HEART THAT YOU ARE AN ANGEL WITH GOD NOW, HIS MOST BEAUTIFUL ANGEL. WHENEVER I SEE YOUR MOTHER ON THE AVENUE, I KNOW YOU ARE NEARBY WATCHING OVER HER. I AM GLAD THAT I WAS ABLE TO WRITE THIS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FOR ALWAYS.

  • To the family and friends of Jennifer,
    I have never met you or Jennifer but after reading about her, I felt compelled to address you. Jennnifer and I are the same age. She looks like someone I would have been friends with. As I read her tribute I cried as if I knew her personally. It’s so hard to read, harder yet, to imagine. I recall 9/11 as if it were yesterday. The feeling of heartache for the families and friends it directly affected was overwhelming.
    As I was making my way to the sight, I was frusturated because my day was not going as I wanted. It’s 6:58am, Saturday, and I am at work. I was upset and bitter I had to be here today. There are so many other things I wanted to do with my day. After reading the many tributes on the sight, I realize how blessed I am to be here. I am grateful to sit at my desk and have the opportunity to write this. I am ashamed at how selfish my attitude is. If only for today, I will make a great effort to thank God for all good and bad that takes place in my life. I will hug my sisters and brother tight and my parents tighter. Thank you for sharing your memeory of your beautiful daughter,family member and friend with all of us. It is the strength of you possess that allowed America to carry on. May god bless you and continue to give you that strength.

    Kathleen, Stranger
  • To Jennifer’s family,
    My brother inlaw John A. Candela worked for Cantor on the 104th floor. After reading Jennifers tributes I felt compelled to tell you that we too understand the pain you feel everyday that you don’t have Jennifer to love or talk to. Having two children of my own my son 16 and my daughter 14, I can’t imagine what I would do without any one of them. My sister has two children a daughter 8 and a son 6 who long for their daddy and still cry at night because their daddy is not there to read to them or kiss them goodnight. My sister lost the love of her life. I can only say that I pray for your family and will keep Jennifer in my prayers as she has touched my life after she was placed in gods hands. God bless all of you always. Mari(friend)

  • Jen, I don’t know where to start but as the days go on I miss you more and more. I really miss the days you loved picking on me by petting me on the head…You loved doing that to me. Words cannot describe the love you left behind, not only to me, but to everyone who new you. Your family misses you dearly. Your sister misses you alot and Alyssa would have loved you as an aunt. I miss your beautiful smile and great personality. Until the day we meet again our angel you will forever be remembered.

    Love your dear friend,
    Christine

    Christine, Dear friend of family
  • Hello again Jennifer. I miss you sweetie. Please don’t ever think that I can ever forget you. It would take a million years! and then some! We were all so proud of you and your accomplishments as well as the person you were. I feel you with me everytime I think of you. I hear you saying “Hi Aunt Maria” “How is Richie”. You were always so concerned about everyone. You remember the Christmas before 9/11 when we all were cooking at the house. You, me, Grandma, Mom? You yelled at me on the telephone before I got there cause you thought I was trying to get out of frying the cutlets. I laughted so hard at your sense of humor! How we take good times for granted! Times we only now can remember and cherish! I saw your Anthony this past Christmas and it pulled on my heart to notice that although he had his arm around the back of the sofa,although I didn’t see you, I just know you were there. Jen, you are just a thought and heartbeat away. You have become everyones’ sweet and gentle memory. I know Grandma and Grandpa,Cuz Robert, your Uncle Ricky and your Grandma Helen are all there with you too… and although the rest of us are still here, in love we will always be together; and look forward to spending eternity together.

    Good Night again dear Jennifer. Know I love you and miss you.

    Aunt Maria

    YOUR AUNT MARIA, PRECIOUS NIECE
  • Dear Jennifer-
    Your birthday, which should be a joyous occasion instead brings the stinging of our loss. I should be taking you out to celebrate, but instead I struggle to find words to make things alright. But things will never be alright-you were too bright a star and the void you left will never be filled. I miss you, and think about you often. Happy Birthday friend.

    David D'Ambrosio, Friend
  • Hi Jenn,
    So tomorrow you’d be 25 and I would’ve been going around the office today having everyone sign your card and getting ready to give you a gift and a cake to blow out candles on…..instead I sit here and think of the loss that i will feel tomorrow…you were such a bright light here at work..we are always talking about you and your personality and your zest for life and of course, lest we not forget, your insatiable appetite, even though you were 100 pounds soaking wet!!!!! I miss you so very much and I wonder how you are. Say hello to Lynne for me and keep that gorgeous smile on that face of yours..for I shall see you one day. Until then, I think of you often and a smile appears on my face. I love you…
    Love,
    Chris

  • Dear Jennifer,
    Happy 25th Birthday to our beautiful angel. Words can’t begin to express how much you are missed. Our hearts are so heavy with pain. We think about you all day and speak of you too. We will never forget you. You are a daughter that made us proud and continue to do so. Everywhere we go we run into people that knew you and they tell us what a beautiful and sweet girl you were. We can’t believe how many people that knew you. You continue to amaze us.
    If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again. Till we meet again we hold the memories of you right in our hearts. Happy birthday baby.
    With all our Love,
    Mom, Dad,
    and your brother Charles

  • Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday Dearest Jenn Jenns, Happy Birthday To You.
    Happy 25th Birthday in heaven Jennifer. I think about you so much and it really hurts to know that you are not with us anymore. On your Birthday I waited until midnight and looked at your picture on my wall and said Happy Birthday to you. I heard the chimes outside my window chime from the breeze that night and I knew in a way that it was you excited that it was your birthday. I pictured you smiling and jumping up and down like you always did on your birthday.
    I bumped into your mother in March with my boyfriend Gilbert and I want to you know that if she or your family need anything Gilbert and I will be there no matter what. The reason for this is because of the friendship you and I shared. You were always concerned about Grannie and wrote her small notes on the register paper from Key-Food saying hi and how much you loved her. She asks about you from time to time and I tell her you are in a better place and she cries because she loved you so much.
    I talk about you to Gilbert all the time and he feels as if he knows you just by hearing stories about our junior high school, High school years, and Keyfood days. He feels the lose of you that we are all feeling.
    It has been a blessing that you came into my life for such a short time, but I will keep the memories alive in my heart until the day I see you once again. You were like a sister I never had and I consider you as that.

    Happy 25th Birthday Jenn Jenns.
    Watch over us and protect us.
    I love you and miss you so much that it really hurts as the tears flow from my eyes down my face.
    Love,
    Frannie (AKA BASKETBALL STAR)and
    Gilbert

  • Jenn,

    I miss you and love you so much. I think of you all day long and want to say so much to you, but when I turn to your web page I am lossed for words…

    I close my eyes,
    I envision you there,
    I reach out my hand,
    No one is there,

    I remember the good times,
    Memories together,
    We laughed and we cried,
    Those days lost forever,

    I know that you’re gone,
    But yet I feel you here,
    Watching and protecting me,
    I know that you’re near,

    So young to have left us,
    But forever beautiful you’ll stay,
    With the angels in heaven,
    I know I’ll see you one day,

    God will open his arms,
    Embrace me in his hands,
    I’ll be reunited,
    With my dearest family and friends.

    Love your sister,

  • Dear Jennifer,
    Here it is almost 22 months without you and we miss you more and more every day. There are days when we still have the anger, sometimes stronger than others. We think about you always and talk about all the good times and the things you accomplished. We are so proud of you. We need you to know we will never never forget you. Everything we do we think of you. I wish I could turn back time and just hold you and never let you go. Just needed to let you know we will never forget you and you will always be missed. Till we meet again you will always be in our hearts. Love you, Mom and Dad

  • Hi Jen,
    I miss you so much. I can’t beleive it is already 2 years today that you left everyone how loves you behind. I think about you very often as you know already and can’t explain the pain we have all felt since. I know you are watching over us and protecting us. You were one unique person who never gave up on her dreams. I miss talking to you, hanging out with you, and just getting teased by you. Those memories will be with me forever. Till we meet again,
    I love you Jen.

  • To Our Special Angel Jennifer,

    We thought of you with love today.
    But that is nothing new.
    We thought about you yesterday.
    And days before that too.
    We think of you in silence.
    We often speak your name.
    Now all we have is memories.
    And your picture in a frame.
    Your memory is our keepsake.
    With which we’ll never part.
    God has you in his keeping.
    We have you in our heart..

    Dear Jennifer,
    Two years and we miss you as if it were yesterday. Time can never erase the pain we feel. Till we meet again know that you are always in our heart.
    Love, Mom and Dad and family

  • Dear Jennifer,
    Happy Thankgsgiving Baby. Another holiday without you and our hearts are still heavy with pain.Holidays are no longer what they used to be without you here. So much has happened since 9-11 and you are not here to share with us. Michelle had a baby boy on 9-30, his name is Anthony Carmelo Bonetti and he is as cute as could be.
    On Dec. 5th we are having our block renamed in honor of you, it will be Jennifer Mazzotta Way, I know you will be proud. I walk outside and can hear you playing as a small child, it’s funny how so many things come back to us. More than ever I wish I had you here, we miss you so much. Till we meet again you will always be in our hearts.

    Love forever,
    Mom, Dad and Family

  • I miss you so much Jennifer. Things are not the same when I am at your house with your sister on occasions. I miss you funny, humorous ways, especially when you pet my head. You now have a nephew as well that was born Sept. 30th. He is so adorable and Alyssa is beautiful. They both would of loved you dearly. It’s almost Christmas time and wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas in heaven. Watch over us our Angel.

  • Dear Jenn,
    I awoke this morning with a heavy heart. The pain of your loss is not any easier to handle, especially on the this day, the 3rd anniversary of your death. I miss you so much. I often speak to you and hope that you hear me. I need you to know that you are still such a big part of my life. How I wish I could give you one last hug or tell you one last time how much I Love You!Jenn, I’m so angry I could just scream. WHY? Why did this have to happen? Some say you’re in a better place but I am having difficulty finding comfort in that thought today. I want you here with us! I want to see your smile and hear your laughter. I guess I’ll just have to draw on the memories that I have stored and hope to God that you feel the Love that surrounds the beautiful you.
    All My Love Always,

  • Hi Jenn,
    I am having problems sleeping this morning since this day marks the 3 year anniversary you were taken from so many people whom have grown up with you as friends and espically your family who miss you so dearly that it hurts. This is a very emotional day for many of us since you were taken away on this horrifying dayand it is still very hard to believe that it happened. Each one of use is trying to deal with your lose in different ways as I have been trying to this week. I found myself looking up tributes in your memory since this is the only way I can be close to you and see your face once more. Today we will reflect on your memory and thank God for having you in our lives for such a short period of time. I have many memories of working with you in Keyfood, and going to High school together. You were always there for me when things were rough and I often ask you to help me with things going on know, which you are aware of. I just wanted to Thank you for being you and a wonderful friend. I will keep you and your family in my prayer today as I do everyday, adn keep my faith in God that he will help us all find some comfort within our selves on your memory. In your memory today I lit up a candle and later on today I will get some flowers and throw them out into the ocean and go to church and pray. I miss you very much. Watch over us and protect us. I love you Jennifer more then you will ever know.
    Love,

  • HI Jenny girl,

    Although i think of you often, I have not written in awhile. I miss you and still smile when memories of you float into my head. So much has gone on, its 3 1/2 years later and i still miss you guys so much. I come to work at a new job, new desk and your picture with lynne and the rest of the crew is on my desk, as always. You guys are my giuding light, my driving force….I hope you are well and happy and laughing loudly with Lynne, holding my place till we meet again.
    Love you and miss you, always always and always.

  • I do not know you, but by reading your tributes I wish I did. So many people loved you, and you are still so missed. Whenever I need time to reflect on the anniversary of this horrible event, I turn to this tribute and see your smiling face. I read the wonderful things your mother says and how much she misses you. I feel so guilty arguing with my mom over petty issues and your tribute makes me apprecite her so much more. Now with my new baby I take not a minute for granted. I hope your up there knowing that even now you continue to make a diffrence in peoples lives. Thank you.

  • Hi Jenn,

    I’m by mom and dads house for there anniversary, on the computer in what used to be our room. I know that if you were here with us right now you would be playing with your niece and nephew. We were going through your jewelry box today to pick out something to give Kayla for her communion on Sunday, mom knew that you would love for her to have something. Alyssa tried on your necklace.
    I miss you terribly and even though you were the one always so lovable and me not so mushy as I was when I was a little girl, I would love to give you a big hug and pinch you right now :). You were and will always be the best sister anyone could ever ask for and I will cherish every moment of our life together, even with Mr. Magoo, lol.

    I LOVE YOU SIS!!!

    Love always your sister,
    Michelle

  • Jenn,
    In two months it will be 4 years since you were taken from us. It does not hurt any less. I have kept your picture in my car all these years and I always will. I still think of you and cry. I have moved out of Maspeth now and I am in Philadelphia but the distance has not made me forget you or your family, though I am ashamed that I have not been able to keep in touch with your parents as much as I did. I hope you know that I miss you and I still sting from the pain of this tragedy

    David D'Ambrosio, friend
  • It’s been four years and the pain is still so acute. I miss you terribly and think of you constantly. For reasons incomprehensible to me, it just gets harder to face the 9/11 anniversary. Some say time heals all wounds, however I do not agree with this. It just gets worse. I have so many questions that will never be answered. I’m filled with grief but such anger too. Jenn, you are forever in my thoughts and prayers and I miss you.

    Love,
    Aunt Lynda

  • Hi Jenn,

    Tonight is the eve before the 4th Anniversary when you were taken from your loved ones and espically the friendships you made over the years. It is still hard for many of us to realize what had happened to you, but we all know that you are in a much better place watching over us. I often think about you and wonder why this happened to you, which makes me miss you more and more. You were a very special true friend that only comes around once in a lifetime. I was one of the lucky ones to have had you as one of those rare people. I am very blessed since our friendship grew over the years. Grandma often asks for as she just turned 85, and I am glad that she still remembers you and how very special and sweet you were to her when she went to shop at Key Food.
    I miss you very much and love you as if you were my own sister and part of my tiny family I had growing up. Watch over all of us and protect us as you are doing right now.
    Love Always,
    Frannie

    Frances Zarzycki, Close Friend
  • Hey Jenn,
    Its me again writing to you since I am in a state of morning this painful day. This morning is a very sad and somber day for all of us whom lost someone in the horrible attacks in 2001. It is hard to believe that 4 years have gone so fast, it seems just like yesterday that it happened. I am watching the ceremory on the TV with my Fiance’ and its hard to realize that you are gone with all these people. This pain that we all feel for you never goes away, it gets harder on this day and the tears fall so freely, but I know you are in a better place watching over us. I love you so much and miss you with your silly and vibrent gift of life you gave to all of us.
    God Bless you, Protect and watch over us Jenn.
    Till we meet again.

  • Hey there Jenn,
    Wanted to say Ashley is 10 now. When you first met her she was 1years old. We have your pictures around our home. I talk to my 2 sons Joey and Danny about you all the time. They know of you and what happend but since they are still young they dont understand. We watch video’s with you in them and I explain to the kids who you were. Ashley still has all her memories of you Jenn.
    We miss you.

  • Dear Jenn, I am missing you so much. As milestone moments occur in our family we are reminded of all that has been lost. Steven and I were chatting a few nights ago and he asked 1,000
    questions about you. While he was only 2 1/2 when you passed on, he has grown to understand who you were and what you meant to all of us. He knows what a zany, loving and energetic young woman you were. He knows that he was lucky to have had you in his life even for such a short while. I miss you, Mama. Love, Aunt Lynda

    Lynda Saar, Aunt
  • 5 years have past and we miss you even more. I have chosen not to make today a day of sad thoughts although there will be plenty of those! Instead I am choosing to remember the beautiful person that you were and the Love and Light you brought into my life. I wish we had more time together but I have only to accept what I was given and be glad for that time. we all miss you dearly and love you madly.

  • Dear Jenn, It’s been a while since I left anything on any of your pages; but you are never far away. I dream of you all the time as you well know and I think of you everyday. My heart aches always over loosing you. You would oh sooo enjoyed your nephew and nieces. They are truly a delight and blessing to all of us!!! But just thinking how much more happy we would all be if you were here. Rest peacefully my beautiful niece and know that the day that we will all be together again is not that far away~!

    Loving you always, Aunt Maria and Cousin Richie

  • I did not know Jennifer, but by all accounts she seemed like such a wonderful person. I write this on the 6th anniversary of this terrible tragedy—can it really be 6 years?? I just want Jennifer’s family and friends to know that she will never be forgotten, I visit these pages often, and am just struck by all the accomplishments made. Jennifer was beautiful and she is truly thought of with love every day. May she always rest in peace; she is a Heavenly Angel above 🙂 Love always from Minnesota, Dana Andersen

  • It has taken me 6 years to write down my feelings about losing Jennifer. The pain is unbearable still. Jennifer was my best friend. We became friends in second grade, when she moved to Maspeth, where we lived on the same block and from then we became lifelong friends. Jennifer and I were more than friends, we were family. We were inseparable. We had a unique friendship that didnt need words. We went to elementary school, junior high school and college together. We even worked at Key Food together. We knew each other in and out and no matter what we always were there for each other. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t mourn the death of my best friend. She was the most beautiful human being I have ever met. She was a giving, compassionate and funny person. I feel blessed that I was part of such an amazing persons life. She had the gift of bringing out the best in a person and always made you feel good about yourself. I miss her everyday and know that she is with me in my heart.

    Jenn,

    Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and yearn to talk to you or see you. My heart is crushed but there’s nothing I can do to get you back. Since you were unfairly taken from us, it has left such a void in my life, which NEVER can be filled until we meet again. Jenn, you were one of a kind. You were a rising star and now I know you must be both a shining star and an angel.

    Love you always,
    Your sister Michelle

    You would have turned 30 today,
    if you were still here.
    Although you are so far away,
    our hearts have kept you near.

    The pain will ease a bit I guess,
    yet has not gone away.
    It will always stay a part of us,
    until we join you there one day.

    We send our love up to you,
    from all our hearts to yours.
    Just think a birthday spent in Heaven,
    means you will spend it with The Lord.

    Dear Jenn,

    We will be going to the cemetery today to wish you a Happy Birthday, even though you are not there!!! Well, I guess you can be there if you put those wings to use and fly by when we are there. Please let me know that you are with us and give me a sign. I hope you enjoy your day with the rest of our loved ones in what they call “heaven” (???).

    Love you and miss you always,

    Dear Jenn,

    It’s that time of year again and it doesn’t get any better. This should have NEVER happened. I still can except the fact that your gone. You should be here with us.
    Jenn, you were always so goal oriented. You knew what you wanted in life. I can’t help but to think what part of your life you could of been at. You would have made a wonderful mother and wife. You loved kids and had a gentle heart for them.
    I rememeber how supportive you were when I was pregnant with Alyssa. I will never forget your honesty and kind words. I saved some of the cards you gave me. I remember what you wrote in one of them. You told me that you were the only baby sitter and you wanted to treat Alyssa like your own. I know you would have had a special bond. It hurts me more and more as the years go on to know that you will never share in my families (John, Alyssa, Anthony, Jenna and I)life and I will never get to have neices or nephews from you. We’re missing out on so much. It hurts so bad.
    I want to thank you for being the best sister anyone could ever ask for. I would give anything for one last talk with you. I remember when I used to talk you to sleep, lol. Thank you for touching my life.
    I Love You and Miss you eternally!!!

    Love,
    Your sister, Michelle

    Dear Jenn,

    It’s that time of year again and it doesn’t get any better. This should have NEVER happened. I still can except the fact that your gone. You should be here with us.
    Jenn, you were always so goal oriented. You knew what you wanted in life. I can’t help but to think what part of your life you could of been at. You would have made a wonderful mother and wife. You loved kids and had a gentle heart for them.

  • My heart still aches that you were stolen from this world too young and too unfairly. You are often in my thoughts and your picture is always near me. Time marches on, but I will never forget and your memory will live on with my children and my children’s children. Your family is always in my thoughts and my prayers.

    Hi Jenn,

    Your birthday is this Easter Sunday. You would have been 31. I wish you were here to celebrate it with us. Let me tell you, it’s been 7yrs and 7 months and it doesn’t get any easier. This week has been a tough one.
    I put out my easter decorations and I have two from you. One in which Grandma and Grandpa Saar bought you and the other is an Easter train that Grandpa Saar gave you when Grandma passed away. You gave both of them to me when you were helping me pack before I got married. I didn’t want you to give them to me because I wanted you to take them with you when you got married. But, you insisted that I have them.(???)
    They say that spirits live on. I know that you must have a strong one. So, please give me a sign. Don’t worry you won’t scare me, lol.
    I hope you have a wonderful Birthday and Easter up there somewhere with the rest of our loved ones. I miss you all so much!!!

    Love always and forever,
    Your sister, Michelle

  • Hi Jenn,

    Well what can I say, it’s another year without my beautiful sister. A part of my life was torn apart the day you were so cruely taken from us. I want to wish you a HAPPY new year in “heaven” with the rest of our loved ones. I’ll love you and miss you always.

    Love,
    Michelle

    Hi Jenn,

    I want to wish you a Happy Birthday in “heaven”. You would have turned 32 tomorrow. It hurts so much to think of all you/we are missing out on. I don’t want to make it a day for mourning but a day of rememberance for all you accomplished during the short time you had here on earth and all the joy you brought into the lives of others.
    The other day Jenna asked me who’s birthday is next and I said Aunt Jennifer. Jenna replied “that is your sister and she died we will have to blow out the candles for her, mommy do you miss your sister?” At that moment my heart felt so heavy and all I can say is “Yes, and Aunt Jennifer loves you guys and is watching over you”. Your neices and nephew know about you and from time to time mention you. It sometimes feels like they met you.
    Jenn, I am so proud to have had you as my sister!!! I hope to meet with you when my time comes. Love you and miss you always!!!

    Love always,
    Michelle

    Hey Jenn,

    I was visiting some of your coworkers pages and on one a 9 yrs old daughter wrote to her father. It was one of the most beautiful but heart wrenching tributes I’ve ever read.

    I miss you terribly and can not see too clearly out of my eyes right now but will get through my tribute to you. I’m so sorry you had to go through the pain and suffering or maybe you died on impact??? I hope you didn’t suffer! I wish I could see you again!!!

    Love you,
    Your sister, Michelle

  • 9 years tommorrow, we that knew you will never forget what happened and how unfair it all is. Rest in peace

  • Each and every day when I think of you, especially on this day, I think about all that could have been. I think about all that you could have achieved and accomplished, I think about the life and family you could have created, and I think about the support, love, and light that you would have continued to give to those that you loved. It makes me so angry that your life was cut so short and in such a tragic way before you ever got to realize your full potential in all the stages that life has to offer. Know that you’re forever missed and loved…and your memory lives on.
