I worked with Jon for many years before 9-11. He was a hardworking person who just wanted to make his customers happy. He used say 'I am just going to do what they need and ask for forgiveness later'. Jon you are very much missed by those who knew you well.

Jon was my cousin. I last saw him when we were both children. I did, however, see his parents at most big family events. I know that his Mom passed away from cancer soon after Jon's death. I think she died of a broken heart. I think of his Dad often.

I met Jon when I called on him as a Consulting Vendor. Without question one of the nicest clients I ever had the privilege to serve. I had lunched with him many times and the two things that I most remember is how much he loved his wife and his children and how dedicated he was to his work. He would often talk about the boys' baseball games and his lovely wife. He talked about how concerned he was about a medical condition that his wife was going through at the time and I was really touched by how caring a person he was especially since he was having a really tough day at work. As I got to know Jon more, I knew instinctively that he is a very special person and that I am privilged to have met him. As brutally short as his life was, he touched many hearts in that short time. May God give Jon's family strength to live life as fully as Jon wished for them.

Today was of dedication and remembrance... we had a prayer service at my school in memories of all those victim to the terrorist attacks. During the service, everyone received a bracelet, each unique with a name of someone lost in the 9-11 assault. That individual and their loved ones were to be in our prayers today, and everyday, in addition to all those in the world suffering of similar losses. The name inscribed on my bracelet... was Jon Albert. My prayers go out especially to his soul and to his family. May you all have the strength to endure the suffering and pain, living life in his honor. God Bless.

Jon and I worked together about 12 years ago when Marsh was located in the McGraw Hill Building. It was difficult learning that Jon was among the many people who lost their lives in such a sensless way. As I entered a site on missing people Jon's was the first to appear. I sat at my computer in disbelief. My first memory of Jon was when I started working at Marsh. He was on vacation, and since a cubicle had not been set up for me yet, I sat at his desk for the week. It was a nice way to meet many of the people who worked at Marsh and they all had the same thing to say about Jon, he was a great guy to work for, and they were right. Even though it has been many years since I worked with Jon he is missed and thought of many times. My heart and prayers go out to Jon's family and hope they are well. Stephanie Amato

My condolences to Jon's family and friends and colleagues at Marsh. I worked with Jon indirectly back in the 80's and early 90's before the move to the WTC. I was with the PC/ networking group and participated in many planning meetings with him. He was a good performer at Marsh and will be missed. Thomas Mooney

It's been almost 10 months since that awful day and I still can't get the images nor the sorrow of friends and colleagues taken way too early out of my mind. I knew Jon when I worked at Marsh from '88-'94. I knew him as someone who went out of his way to help me understand how the business worked and how the software we used (yes, the famous BASYS system), intrinsically functioned to gather information. But I most remember him when we did a film for our MMIS Quarterly meeting, 'BASYS in Space' where he played an evil scientist plotting to create the perfect trainer. He was a natural and received a big hand at our meeting. Years later as I moved to Tarrytown, I often saw him on the platform at the Tarrytown station. We exchanged hellos and brief conversations, he liked sitting several cars back, I liked sitting up front. Almost every day I pass the spot where he had stood waiting for the train. I keep thinking that one day he will show up again there with his newspaper and smile and a hello. He will be missed.

Jon Albert was my former boss back in 1985 when I was employed by Marsh & McLennan. We worked at 1221 Avenue of the Americas and he was a great man. I enjoyed working with Mr. Albert. He was funny, witty and a respectable man. When I found out he was one of the employees who lost their life I cried and till this day, can't believe he is gone. My prayers goes out to the Albert family. He is in a better place and may all of the employees of Marsh who lost their lives rest in peace. With much respect, Iliana Feliciano - Ocala, Florida
