I am honored to be a part of his project again. Please be sure to visit Project 2,996 to read about so many others that lost their lives on September 11, 2001.


Jason Matthew Coffey, 25, from Newburgh, New York, died on September 11, 2001. He was a senior accountant at Marsh & McLennan in the World Trade Center. His father Daniel also lost his life in the World Trade Center that day.

The New York Times reported:

“Daniel M. Coffey & Jason M. Coffey: Like Father, Like Son

On Sept. 11, Daniel M. Coffey and his son Jason M. Coffey planned to meet for lunch at the World Trade Center, where they both worked for subsidiaries of Marsh & McLennan. Daniel Coffey, 54, needed to have his wedding ring enlarged after 30 years of marriage. Jason Coffey, 25, was going along to pick out a surprise engagement ring for his fiancee, Colleen McDonald.

Jason, a senior accountant at Marsh Inc., was on the 98th floor.

Jason Coffey was a big guy who loved to play rugby. (His mother did not want him to play football. Too dangerous.) He was also always ready to go out, including to a local bar, Pineapple Larry's.

But now he was settling down. He was in the process of buying his grandparent's house in Newburgh and he and Ms. McDonald were going to fix it up, just like his father and mother did to their house. Jason Coffey and Ms. McDonald had planned to get married Dec. 7, 2002.”

You are remembered today Scott.
