In Memory of Debra Marie Paris

In Memory of Debra Marie Paris

Debra Marie Paris was 48 years old and from New York, NY. Debra worked for Sandler O'Neill on the 104th floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

When Herman Sandler, president of Sandler O'Neill, bought his yacht, he turned everything over to Debra, saying, "Let me know when the money runs out." She did the rest, from hiring a captain to paying the marina. 'No Problem' was his name for the boat — fitting, no doubt, from his point of view, but only because of Debra.

On September 11, 2001, 83 people came to work at Sandler O'Neill and 66 never went home.

"She was like my wife, my child, my mother, my best friend. And I was a husband and father and child and brother to her." Jimmy (Debra's husband).


  1. God Bless the family and friends of all who lost their lives on this
    horrible day!

  2. I run into this couple at 9-11 Memorial on July 5th, 2012, which I think were parents of Debra Marie Paris and I took their pictures there. I wish, there was a way to send them the pictures to commemorate their visit there on that day, but I don't know how.
