In Memory of Steven Paul Chucknick

In Memory of Steven Paul Chucknick

Steven Paul Chucknick loved Christmas.

"Well, the leaves have finally let go and have come down. And today, to my surprise, I woke up to snow. Is that a gift to me from you? I hope so, because it made me smile. I put up the Christmas lights outside today. Well, it doesn't look as good as when you did it, but I tried. I miss you so much. Christmas is so lonely without you. I miss waking up on Christmas morning and watching you and Steven opening your presents. I never knew who was the kid, you or Steven. You were always happy with whatever. I still remember and cherish the Christmas gifts you gave me on our last Christmas together. I will cherish them always. I miss so much the Christmas ornament you bought me every year. Steven and I still buy the son and dad ornament every year. It's what Steven wants. I asked him how long he wants to keep buying the dad ornament, and his answer was, "Forever." And we will. You will always be the best part of our Christmas, even though you aren't here in body. I love you, my Angel."

My heart to yours forever,
Your wife Barbara.


Steven Paul Chucknick was 44 years old and from Old Bridge, New Jersey. (Born: Staten Island, New York). Steven worked as vice president of communications and facilities for Euro Brokers Inc. on 84th floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

In his position as the vice president at Euro Brokers, he was the one on the walkie-talkie, organizing employees for evacuation. That post, coupled with his duty as a floor fire marshal, put Steven as one of the last people to leave the floor. Most heartbreaking for his wife is that 240 of the 300 people who worked for her husband's company did escape, and remember seeing him. They tell her what a hero he was, calming anxious employees, making them feel better.

"I wish he would have run out. But he would have never left if even one person was still behind. He was always putting other people first," Barbara Chucknick.

  1. My Love,
    It seems the 9/11 tribute I always wrote to you is gone but my love for you will never leave. I can't believe we are approaching 13 years and yet in my mind and heart it still seems like yesterday. Our son Steven is a constant reminder of the love we had and will always have. He is amazing. He is so very much like you. Caring, compassionate, giving and loving. I cant believe he will be 26 this year. He was only 12 when we lost you. Life for us hasn't changed much. We keep you part of it everyday. I know you have been with us when we needed you but please remember.....we will always need you. I love you so much
    My heart to only yours forever
    Your wife Barbara

  2. Hi, I'm from the Phoenix, AZ area, my wife is from Hackensack, NJ. On 2014/10/10 we went there to pay our respect for the victims of 9/11. I never knew how powerful and overwhelmed I become there. Just looking at the new tower, water falls, and all the constructions that are still on going. Picture I took from the waterfall had Mr. Chucknick name. So I researched his name and came across so many nice and powerful letters. I would like to say I'm sorry for your families lose. He sounded like a nice and respectable man. Many of us on the southwest have not forgotten this attack. Just thought you would like to know.

    Thank you.
