|Andrew I Rosenblum
Date of Birth: August 20, 1959
Department: Preferred Stock
Position: Vice President
Andrew graduated SUNY Binghamton with a B.A. in Political Science in 1978. He attended Pace University School of Law and received his J.D. in 1981. He practiced law for several years before embarking on a new career on Wall Street. On his first day he met James Smith and together they remained friends and partners to the end. Andrew and his wife Jill raised their two sons, Jordan, 14, and Kyle, 11 in Rockville Centre. He was extraordinarily philanthropic and donated to innumerable charities that addressed a wide range of causes. Andrew took time out to share hi time and expertise with students from Southside High School in a mentoring program as well as coaching students in trial skills both in Rockville Centre’s youth court and Pace University’s Moot Court Program. He was also an avid golfer and excellent tennis player. Andrew’s encouragement of education has been recognized by his family members who have established the Andrew Rosenblum Memorial Trust Fund, which will provide an annual scholarship to a deserving high school student. At his memorial service, held September 16, 2001 at Temple B’nai Shalom in Rockville Centre, hundreds gathered to say goodbye to Andrew and to hear these words:
“A famous Rabbi sent his disciples to learn what was the essential characteristic a person must possess to have a satisfying, fulfilling life. They came back with various answers, one said, ‘a good eye.’ One said, ‘a good friend.’ A third said ‘ a good neighbor.’ Another ‘a good heart.’ Any one of these qualities would suffice as the foundations of a good life. Our Andy possessed all of them.”
He huddled together everyone he could gather, called his wife, and rattled off who was there, who to call for them, and that they were waiting for help. He put everyone in the last survivable place on the trading floor. He did everything that he could, and God bless him and those with him.

20 years seems just like yesterday. You are missed every single day. Ten days ago would have been your 66th Birthday. What a celebration we would have. As you said many times, you are “on top of the world!”
