|Jason M. Sekzer
Date of Birth: June 5, 1970
Position: VP, ITD Trade Support
How do you describe perfection? My husband Jason Sekzer, was like the rookie card found in a baseball card deck. He was compassionate, responsible, loyal, tender, and loved life. He was a diamond in the Ruff and a true gentleman. He held the door for a lady, he helped the elderly cross the street and he had the embrace that could soothe a crying baby. Jason was a man of his convictions. He always stood by what he believed in. His integrity and honesty was what he lived by. If you asked him to do something, he would climb Mt. Everest to get it done, without ever complaining. He was truly a noble man.
In the 31 years of his life his accomplishments were far and great. Jason began his career with Cantor Fitzgerald in 1996 as a clerk. Within a couple of years he quickly was promoted to VP of Operations. In January of 2001, his hard work and dedication was rewarded by his promotion to Vice President of IT Trade Support. He was traveling down the road of success rapidly but unfortunately, was forced to leap off his path.
Jason grew up in Sunnyside, Queens, NY. He was a wonderful and loving son. If his father told him to stay of the street, Jason would stand at the curb and watch his friends play (even when dad was nowhere to be found). Jason was the epitome of a big brother. He and his brother were the loyalist fans of the New York Rangers and New York Yankees. They witnessed the 1994 Rangers Stanley Cup Championship together-and watched many Yankee games, whether it was from the living room sofa or the Yankee bleachers. Many times I asked Jason, “Do we have to watch this game”? He would reply, “Yes, because it makes a difference”…And it always did.
Jason was loved dearly by his many circles of friends. He had close relationships to many of his Sunnyside childhood friends as well as friends he made at Camp Sussex Summer Camp, the place where Jason and I fell in love. On September 11th, my life along with our family and friends shattered into little pieces. Our lives will never be whole again. Our priceless treasure has been taken from us.
My dearest love, you will always have my heart and soul. We have been robbed of the beautiful future we were supposed to have together. I will treasure the memories you have given me. You will always hold the key to my heart. “In my dreams I’ll always see you soar above the sky, in my heart there’ll always be a place for you for all my life – I’ll keep a part of you with me, and everywhere I am there you’ll be”.
All my love,
