I worked with John for five years in Torrance. He was smart, hard working, funny and he truly enjoyed life. His death was so senseless, but his memory will live on in us that knew him. Rest in Peace, my old friend.

We did not know John but we lived around the corner from him. Today 9-11/2011 our family put flowers on the plaque next to the bench in his honor. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and all those who perished on this day one decade ago.

I knew John when I was a kid from the roller skating rink. So sad that his life was cut short. Iím thinking of him and all the others today and everyday, praying for their families and hoping that something like 9/11 never happens again.

Thinking of you, and your family, as the 10th anniversary approaches tomorrow. I wear a silver bracelet with your name on it, and our HS class and year to honor you...we will never forget you or any other victims of the September 11th tragedy...I hope you are at peace.

So that John may rest in peace I promise to continue to watch over his sister Carol my dear friend so that she never has to face her grief alone...Valerie

There is a bench in Hickory Park in Torrance with a memorial plaque in John's honor.

I purchased a Mercy band (bracelet) from the Billy Graham Association not long after the 9/11 tragedy. When it arrived it had John Wenckus' name on it. I have worn it every year since then, and always remember his family in prayer.

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner. We are maintaining this site with our own money and time. We try to keep the advertisements to a minimum and we try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
