In Memory of Charles J. Mauro

In Memory of Charles J. Mauro

Charles J. Mauro was 38 years old and from Staten Island, New York. (Born: Brooklyn, New York).

Charles was the restaurant purchasing director for Windows on the World on the 106th floor in the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

On September 11, 2001, everyone present in the restaurant when American Airlines Flight 11 penetrated the North Tower survived the plane's impact but perished either because of smoke inhalation during the ensuing conflagration, jumping or falling to their deaths, or the eventual collapse of the tower 102 minutes later, as all passages to below the impact zone were blocked.

"Charlie Mauro, my husband, my life was the most loving, giving and caring person you'd ever have the pleasure to meet. He filled my life with hope and happiness. His death leaves a deep scar in my heart that can never be replaced. He was my best friend, and life will never be the same without him. He touched a thousand lives, and we are all the better for it. God bless him wherever he may be. I hope he can rest in peace. I miss you, Pumpkinhead. All my love to you forever". (Charles's wife Barbara).

  1. Charlie you have a wonderful family. I remember you from 72nd and 11th and from Circles. I think of you and your family as I drive to work and pass your block named in your memory. Today is my birthday and I wanted to reflect and remember all 9/11 victims and their families hoping and praying that they are doing as well as they can. I remember in November of 2011, I saw your dad in McKinley HS as he volunteered for election nights. He told me he still was hoping they would find you, and I got back into my car and cried and cried. God Bless all of you! In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
