On September 11th, 2001, New York City became the target of an act of terrorism, which sent two hijacked commercial airliners into the World Trade Center. Our daughter, Jennifer Lynn Kane, age 26, was an employee of Marsh & McLennan working on the 100th floor of the north tower. Jennifer was a 1997 graduate of the College of Commerce and Finance at Villanova University in Pennsylvania. She was a Certified Public Accountant who was genuinely admired as a committed employee, mentor, and loving family oriented person. Jennifer touched many lives and continues to do so. 100% of all donations to the Jennifer Kane Scholarship & Charitable Trust during 2017 will be donated in Jen’s memory to the causes listed below.
