  Kevin Cohen

Date of Birth: July 2, 1973
Position: Desktop Support

Kevin spent most of his life growing up in Edison, N.J. After graduating from J.P. Stevens High School he earned a degree in Communications from Western Oregon State College. Shortly after graduation, he worked for IBM. After that, he continued his education and became certified as a Microsoft Professional. He joined eSpeed in May of 2000 and worked in Desktop Support.

Kevin enjoyed spending time with his friends watching football and basketball games. Kevin loved to play and listen to music, his favorite groups being the Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic. It was very hard to go a day without hearing him play numerous songs on his keyboard. One of Kevin’s greatest attributes was the warm relationship that Kevin
And his friends had for each other. He had so many best friends. As Kevin’s family can tell you, he worked hard and played hard. He was always on the go and had a lot of energy.

His smile, good looks, music and friendship will be missed not only by his family, but also by his friends.

  • I will always remember some of the great practical jokes that Kevin & I played on people in the office. Kevin always lived life to the fullest outside of the office, but was an extremely hard worker in the office. Kevin never showed the typical “It’s not my job” response to something he was asked to do, even when the task clearly belonged to someone else. He was the consumate team player, and great person to have as your friend….

  • Kevin loved ckicken. Chicken Parm, Chicken Salad, Chicken wings and of course the Widespread Panic classic “I Love My Chicken!”. Kevin and I shared an office for over a year and not a day went by that he didn’t play that song and that I didn’t beg him to stop. He was one of the funniest individuals I ever had the privlege of knowing. He was always quick with the practical jokes but the one moment I remember most vividly was a time when a co-worker’s father had passed away. An email was sent to all the employees informing us that a collection was being taken up for some flowers to be sent to the family. Before I was even half way through reading the email, Kevin was out the door with money in his hand and the most genuine look of regret and condolence on his face. That was not a side of his personality he showed often, but that is what I will always remember about him. That was my friend…Kevin Cohen.

  • When I first met Kevin, I felt he was a little abrasive, and as I got to know him, I came to realize that using the word abrasive was to be kind. Kevin and I worked together in desktop support. Whenever we were both in the offcie we would constantantly try to outdo each other with practical jokes or ranking. Sometimes we would be on the same side and pull a practical joke on someone else in the office.

    Kevin had come a long way in the year and a half that he worked at eSpeed. He wasn’t abrasive anymore he was just annoying! I am sure that if Kevin could read this he would be laughing. That’s the relationship we had and to write anything less would dissapoint Kevin.

    I had the pleasure of attending Kevin’s birthday party this summer. It was on July 3rd at a bar on 3rd Ave. The place was packed with people. I couldn’t believe Kevin had so many friends. I’m glad I went!

    I liked Kevin and just wish that he could be with us now to help us. If for no other reason than to annoy me.

  • Kevin was a great co-worker who became an even better friend. Regardless of the situation, he would always look at the positive without wasting time on the negative. There are very few people you will meet in your lifetime that impact the way you view the world; Kevin was one of them. To this very day, those of us who knew him in Colorado will use a typical Kevin “expression” without realizing it (“quite possibly”). It’s after you’ve used it that you realize who we’ve all lost.

    I have missed him since I left New Jersey, and now miss him even more. I regret that I will never have the chance to wish him a true farewell.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

  • “Touch of Grey”

    Must be getting early
    Clocks are running late
    Paint by number morning sky
    Looks so phony
    Dawn is breaking everywhere
    Light a candle, curse the glare
    Draw the curtains
    I don’t care ’cause
    It’s all right
    I will get by / I will get by
    I will get by / I will survive
    I see you’ve got your list out
    Say your piece and get out
    Yes I get the gist of it
    but it’s all right
    Sorry that you feel that way
    The only thing there is to say
    Every silver lining’s got a
    Touch of grey
    I will get by / I will get by
    I will get by / I will survive
    It’s a lesson to me
    The Ables and the Bakers and the C’s
    The ABC’s we all must face
    And try to keep a little grace
    It’s a lesson to me
    The deltas and the east and the freeze
    The ABC’s we all think of
    Try to give a little love.
    I know the rent is in arrears
    The dog has not been fed in years
    It’s even worse than it appears
    but it’s all right.
    Cows giving kerosene
    Kid can’t read at seventeen
    The words he knows are all obscene
    but it’s all right
    I will get by / I will get by
    I will get by / I will survive
    The shoe is on the hand it fits
    There’s really nothing much to it
    Whistle through your teeth and spit
    cause it’s all right.
    Oh well a Touch Of Grey
    Kind of suits you anyway.
    That was all I had to say
    It’s all right.
    I will get by / I will get by
    We will get by / We will survive

  • Kevin, was my “on-the-spot” PC guy! I always received a PC from “hell” and they never seemed to work. Finally in July 2001, Kevin helped load software onto another “new” PC…finally a PC that worked! I still have an email from him apologizing for not coming by my desk back around 7/23 to complete his work, but he finished it the next week. I still keep this email in remembrance of my friend. Miss you Kevin and God’s continued blessings to his family.

  • I only knew Kevin for about 6 months. We went out a couple of times for ice cream and drinks. He was the sweetest guy. Didn’t have a single bad bone in is body. My hearts and prayers are with his family.

    Mo, co-worker
  • Kevin was simply the greatest. The greatest friend & the greatest person. We have been friends since we were children and will stay best friends forever. There is no way to replace a friend like Kevin because there is no one like Kevin. He was there for me if I needed him, he was there for me if I wanted to have a good time. He brought so much joy and happiness to so many people I was lucky to spend so much of my life with him. He made me the person I am today, a much better person from having known him. No written tribute could scratch the surface of what a magical person he was. I will never forget about the amazing times we had together and Kevin will live in me forever.

  • In loving memory of my friend Kevin, I will always remember you.

    We little knew that morning, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always by our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same. But as God calls us one by one The chain will link again.

  • When I had problems with my p.c. which was quite often, I would call the help desk and hope that they would send Kevin to help. He was one of the most knowledgeable guys on that desk and it was always a pleasure to deal with him. Little did I know that on that Monday night in the hall of 101 would be the last time I would speak to Kevin. We were just “BS”ing. I like so many others really didn’t get a chance to say good bye to our friends/colleagues. I just wanted to express my condolences to his parents and family. God Bless you Kevin and your family.
    You are with some of the nicest people you would ever want to meet up there in Heaven and I hope you get to hear Jerry personally sing up there! Dude, you will never be forgotten-

    Theresa Nugent, co-worker
  • Kevin was one of the sweetest guys to know and of course befriend. He used to help me out every time I called the “help” desk – a joke we shared.. He used to stroll by with Edgar every so often to visit and help me with my ongoing pc woes. As he said, he was just taking inventory of the candy I left on my desk..

    I miss your cute ways and sweet sense of humor and miss your jokes all of the time..

    Kev – you will always be in my heart and my most sincerest thought, prayers and love are with you and your family… Friends forever…. Monica

  • I remember the first time I met Kev. Its was in Braxton Towers at West Virginia University. He was just walking around the halls and introducing himself and making friends. We immediately hit it off and became very close friends. After Freshman year, we moved into a house on Second st. and the year after that a house on first st.. in a part of Morgantown called “sunnyside”. We always had the best parties and conversations. I remember our trips to Pittsburg for the Aerosmith and Rolling Stones concerts at Three River stadium and also the Igloo. The funny thing about Kev is that everyone on campus knew him and liked him alot. We had many classes together, and many times would he walk into the start of class and pull me out to go to happy hour. He was always looking for an angle for a good time. This is why we are/were the best of friends. I think about Kev everyday and have a picture of him on my wall…. I miss my friend Kev
