Steven Paul Geller "Steve"
Occupation:Cantor Fitzgerald | Equities TraderReflections:The New York Times Portraits of Grief
Steven Geller was a cooking enthusiast, a Yankees fan, and an institutional trader at global investment giant Cantor Fitzgerald. He was a family man if Geller ever knew one, and above all, he was her father—an infectiously loving 52-year-old who’d flown to Texas to adopt her the day she was born.
Geller was 12 on September 11, 2001, outspoken and obsessed with Ludacris, Disney, and all things Harry Potter. “Have a good day,” Steven told her, his only child, as he peeked into her room on his way out the door of their Upper West Side apartment that Tuesday morning.
“Bye, Dad,” she called out from her bed, half asleep at 7 a.m. Then he left for work on the 104th floor of 1 World Trade Center—the first tower to go down in the 9/11 attacks-and never made it home. (source)
