On 9-11-2011, a wonderful gentleman Rick Randall in St Louis Mo put a flag tribute together on a large hill in front of the Art Museum. (Art Hill) He displayed almost 3000 flags in perfect formation. It was a beautiful display and every victim of the 9-11 tragedy was honored in glory. Each flag had a picture of the person as well as their name, age and company that they worked for. One week later, the flags were taken down and sold for a donation to be made to the Marine Corp. I purchased 6 flags for my family to give as Christmas presents to always remember and "Never forget". One of my flags was in tribute to Jon C Vandevander. Even though I did not know Jon, I am truly honored to have his flag in rememberance of this horrible event but am also hoping that in this purchase, his family may know that every time this flag is flown in St Louis, Mo, we will remember Jon. Take care.

My son, Hunter Goldberg, wore a name tag with Jon C. Vandevander on 9/11/11 all day at his school (St. Thomas Aquainas) in Ft. Lauderdale. Hope all is well with his family. He is a hero.

It's been almost ten years in heaven for you ... and there's no change here on earth.... We miss you very much. So much has changed here ... but more has stayed the same.... The occasions where you impacted Robby and Hunter and my lives never changes. I brought you up today. Remember Falco? Anyway ... not even part of the family anymore ... in many ways maturity has made me love them even more. Nonetheless,... while it seems long here ... I pray Anne will have the happiest life here until she can see you again. We all want what you guys had ... a true love. We think of you often.

I miss you, Uncle Jonny. I miss you so much. It's just not the same.

I didn't know who you are, but my dad's last name is Vandevander, so maybe we were related. Even if we aren't, I'm still sorry for your death.

It has been along time, Jon. You and I were friends in college: Soccer, fraternity, roommates. We will all miss you. Judging by the legacy you have left, we could all learn many things. Take care, my friend, and Godspeed.

6 yrs ago today and you and your family are in my thoughts.
I knew Jon years ago and remember a funny young man who I knew would become someone very special. You will always be a memory I treasure

not a day goes by that I don't think of you. not a day will go by that I won't wish that somehow you could have been spared.

Jon was a client of mine when I was a just a girl in my early twenties starting my career in finance. I will never forget his kindness, the respect that he showed me and in turn that the men on his desk treated me with and all of the extra time that he spent teaching me about FX trading. Jon went out of his way to help me grow and become successful in my work. Over time, my job changed and Jon was no longer a client but I married and moved to Glen Rock and would often run into him on the train or the PATH. We kept in touch and he would update me on the news from the desk. I got the sense that he enjoyed "watching me grow up" so to speak from a nervous kid to a married woman commuting from the burbs and now confident in her career. I know that as these years have passed Jon's children who mean the world to him are growing up. I just want them to know that Jon's kindness and nurturing extended into his work life to and I can only hope that each of them has the very good fortune to meet someone along the way who will look out for them the way that their dad looked out for me. I think of Jon and his family often and although we've never met I want them to know that he touched my life and brought a smile to many of my days. My prayers are with you.

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.
