In Memory of Allison Horstmann Jones

Allison Horstmann Jones was 31 years old and from New York, NY. (Born: Hackensack, New Jersey). Allison worked for Sandler O'Neill on the 104th floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

Allison spoke to her parents on the morning of September 11, 2001, when the first plane hit the North Tower. She had been on the 104th floor in the South Tower and planned on fleeing. The last thing she said was, 'I'm going to get out of here.'

Her family watched the two towers burn, grasping onto hope that Allison had made it out in time. Afterwards they went on their own search mission, traveling the streets of New York City and posting dozens of 'missing placards'. They visited every hospital in the city.

In April 2003, investigators found Allison's femur bone. DNA from her hairbrush and toothbrush from her New York apartment matched that from the femur.

"She was the oldest of all of and us and was a great leader. We were friends; we were just getting closer. I always looked up to her." Allison's sister, Jenny.
