Thomas A. Damaskinos
Occupation:Cantor Fitzgerald | Vice President for OperationsDedicated Memorial Sites:Reflections:The New York Times Portraits of Grief
Thomas Damaskinos was born on April 17, 1968 in Staten Island, New York to Vivien and Ted Damaskinos. Being the last of five boys, Tom was known as “the baby” and learned quickly how to take advantage of the situation. His quick, often sarcastic humor, and his love of terrorizing his brothers and playing practical jokes made him the favorite.
He started Cantor Fitzgerald after the birth of his daughter Jessica in 1988. Starting in Office Services he quickly worked his way through the ranks in departments such as Accounting, Operations and the Swap desk. He was well known and liked throughout the firm. Everyone that knows him has at least one hilarious story to tell.
In 1998, he married former employee of Cantor Fitzgerald, Jennifer Hanna. They live in New Jersey and have a beautiful son Matthew, born in 1999, who looks exactly like his daddy. Tom loved to play golf on the weekends with the guys from work and spend time with his family.
To know him is to love him, and he is dearly missed by all of us. (source)
