9/11 Memorial Misspells Victim’s Name
In an “oops” of epic proportions, a 9/11 victim’s name was apparently misspelled on the New York memorial unveiled this past weekend.
Jeffrey Schreier worked for financial firm Cantor Fitzgerald, and was one of the many from that company killed on September 11, 2001.
When his relatives visited the memorial during the 10th anniversary commemorations on Sunday, they were shocked to see his first name had been spelled “Jeffery” instead.
In an email to the New York Times, memorial spokesman Michael Frazier said, “We are extremely sorry for the pain this mistake has caused Jeffrey’s family. As soon as we found out about this error, we began working on how to make it right, and we’re engaged with our fabricators, contractors and the architect to do so.”
Cantor Fitzgerald lost 659 employees in the attacks, the most of any company.
