I remember Mark at different times throughout the year, but especially at this time of year. Mark is the father of my best friend from high school. My fondest memory is of Mr. Rasweiler taking all our pictures right before the senior prom. I learned of Mark's fate from one of the many fliers his family posted in the days after 9/11. Thinking of you and the entire family this week and holding you all in my prayers. ~Eve

I thought I posted this, but here is a youtube song I wrote on 9-11 inspired by Mark's kids asking on national TV if anyone knew where their father was. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cd9q5PA2Ro

I didn't know who Roger Mark Rasweiler was before Sunday. I donated blood in his memory on 9/11/11. My prayer is for his family and friends that you would be comforted by God.

Our thoughts are about Mark and with his family. We miss seeing you out and about town in Flemington. Your kids and our kids are grown and now have families of their own. May their children never have to witness such a tragedy. God Bless.

I never knew Mark. But he is who I think about and seek to hear his name in the roll call of names every 9/11. I worked with and knew his parents for a short time on Long Island. My heart sinks and eyes water when I think of Fran and Charlie, and their loss -- your family's loss -- of Mark. Peace be to him and God bless your family.

I came across your name as I was reading a book 'This is New York' about 9/11. You'll be in our prayers and thoughts when we remember that terrible day. Jan from the Netherlands

I was asked recently if I could prepare a brief description of where I was and what was happening around me ten years ago on September 11, 2001. Looking back on that day brought many, many tears to my eyes. I also remembered my friend and colleague Mark Rasweiler. I had been hoping against hope that he was not in his office on the 104 floor that day. We had met there with him and Mike DuBose just days before the attack to discuss our strategy on a project. I remember him often and when I do I always say a little prayer for him and his family. We miss you Mark.

I awoke this morning thinking of Mark Rasweiler (I knew him as Mark). He was a colleague and mentor to me and others; I found him to be one of the sharpest, brightest professionals I've met, and a kind, caring, and charming person. Judging by these remembrances, he was a devoted family man as well. He will continue to be missed by all who came in contact with him- a truly unique individual who touched many people with his warmth, generosity, and spirit. We lost a great deal on that fateful day.

I recall attending the Bruce Springsteen concert with Mark and his spouse as part of a business function. We had a blast. He is remembered as an ethical and competent safety professional. God bless his family.

I have known Mark since around 1982. He was the JC Penney Safety Account Manager at Liberty Mutual, and I was the local San Diego guy. He moved over the JC Penney Corporate and still worked together. I left LIberty. We lost touch but then we both ended up a Marsh in the mid 90s and had lots of stories to tell. He told me about his family that he loved so much, his kids, wife, his life in NYC. He made me want to visit the big city someday, and I finally did. But we also saw each other at throughout the country as Marsh Environmental Consultants met in places like Denver, Colorado, Orlando, Las Vegas, etc. We were always sitting at the same table because he was so easy to talk to. To make the day less tedious, we would draw pictures, tell jokes, etc. Anyway, I had spoken to him the first week of September 2001. I was just laid off from Marsh Los Angeles, and wanted to take a vacation 'sometime after Labor Day'. I had my plane tickets and reservations at NYC and was going to visit Mark on 9-10 or 9-11. My plans were scrapped when my vacation was denied. On that fateful day, I was at home and heard the news. I called Marsh often to try to track down Mark and Harry Taback, Marsh's Director of Loss Control. I heard about (but didn't see) his kids looking for their daddy on national TV. I am still heavy with sadness at his loss. Years later, through all the sadness, I still remember the laughter he would often provoke with his comments. Trule a great guy, with an awesome sense of humor. Thanks for the great times Mark. You are greatly missed.

In 2006 one man came up with the idea of using 2996 blogs to remember the 2996 people who died on September 11. It has been my honor to be given your name, and to learn of your life, and to honor and remember you this year. You can track this project at http://www.dcroe.com/2996, or http://www.dcroe.com/blog.

On the 2nd year anniversary of September 11th, my high school gave out stickers of all of the names of those who lost their lives on 09/11/01. I chose Roger Mark Rasweiler. I don't know him, but I do know that he will never be forgotten. I just wanted to say that I'm sure it is hard for those of you who were affected by that horrible day, and i want to give all my love and support to all of you. God bless.

Mark, Your wife and your children were truly blest to have you in their lives. Not all of us grew up sharing a life with someone who was such a fine example of a loving caring person. You had so many fine qualities that were and are to this day admired by your family and friends. As a friend of yours and your family, please know that I will continue to support them and to especially keep Susan under my wing here on earth, until we are all together in Gods house. With Love, Gloria Wargo

How do you put into words the life of someone so special? Mark Rasweiler was a devoted husband and a dedicated father / father-in-law. His love for us showed in everything he did. He absolutely adored my mom - so in love with each other even after 32+ years. He was always there for us kids giving us a hand, lending an ear, offering words of advice, or just to hang out with. My dad was the person I always wanted to be. Smart, strong willed, dedicated, hard working, and a sincere love for all who entered his life. He had such a corny sense of humor but you couldn't help to laugh at his silly jokes, especially when he was laughing. He had the best laugh - harty and contagious! I think his favorite joke (he had been telling it to us since we were kids!) is 'What's new? NY, NJ, NH' - that would send him into hysterics! What I would give to hear that again.. Dad, we miss and love you soo much!!! Love always, Susan, Caryn, Lindsey, and Michael
