Jeffrey M. Dingle, killed Sept. 11th, 2001
Jeffrey M. Dingle, age 32.
Place killed: World Trade Center. Resident of New York, N.Y. (USA).
I didn't know anyone killed on September 11th, and I know that for whatever reason, that is a blessing that I am still grateful for. So while I don't have the personal connection with Jeffrey Dingle, that doesn't make his death any less tragic.
As I researched Jeffrey's life, I saw nothing but love and respect for the man in comments left for his family on bulletin boards around the internet. Jeff went to West Hempstead High School, and after graduation Jeff went to Villanova. He joined a fraternity, and according to commenters Jeff was a scholar and an athlete. He finished his education there in 1990. He was working on the 106th floor (of which building I'm not sure) for Encompys that Tuesday, a networking solutions company. His cousin has a memorial for Jeff at Van Courtland Park Golf Course in the Bronx. He was married and had two children.
Those are the nuts and bolts about Jeff, but it doesn't tell you about the kind of guy he was. But this anecdote was left on of the BBS memorial sites, and I think it's more illuminating about the type of person Jeff was.
It sounds like the world lost a truly wonderful person in Jeffrey Dingle. The kind a person that made others around him better...
We will not forget...
