9-11 Tribute

Posted at 4:56 am under Life

James J. Straine
36 years old.
From: Oceanport, N.J.
James died in a attack by Terrorists on the World Trade Center.

Called Jimmy by friends, the Husband of Trisha,
the father of Finn, and Charlie.

James Straine was a son, brother, husband and father most loved.
He had returned to his job on the 104th Floor of One World Trade Center in Manhattan.
Sept 10th for half days, he had been blessed with a new son, 5 days before.

The last call Trisha received from Jim came about 8am on Sept.11, 2001.
Jimmy had called to see how she was doing; it was to be 2 yr old
Finn’s first day of nursery school. Charlie was 6 days old.
Jimmy was worried bout his wife.

Trisha was missing her lover and soul mate.

There was no way to know that would be the final call.

James is said to have been a kind person, with never a cross word.
He was much loved by friends and family.

He was to have been a groomsman in a wedding on the 15 of Sept, 2001

James was an avid reader, hardly seen without a book.
He loved to Golf, and fish
James was a fixed- income investment salesman, at the Cantor Fitzgerald
center in the World Trade Center.

In August 2001, the Straine family moved to Oceanport, N.J., so that James Straine, and his family, could be near the ocean and the Shrewsbury River.
Everywhere you go in Oceanport you can see water, and it was just perfect for his great passion, fishing.
So weeks before James was murdered by Terrorists, he had realized a
Life long dream, To Live on the Ocean.
He at least had the opportunity to take young Finn fishing once.

Trisha, His love, their Children,
Family, friends,
Beach, water, golf, reading, life

There is a golf tournament held each summer now to help Remember Jimmy Straine.
An annual gathering of friends takes place,
Finn and Charlie hear stories; learn about their daddy second hand from people who loved Jimmy and love them also.

The tournament it is also the way that the James J. Straine, Jr. Memorial Scholarship at Jimmy’s alma mater, Watchung Hills Regional High School in Warren, New Jersey is funded.

Jimmy is at home with the Lord.
His family is here and can use our prayers of support and comfort.

From our hearts to yours, we will never forget.
God Bless America.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. I think this is exactly what 2,996 is supposed to be.

    It brings us so much closer to the victims.

    i love the ocean too.

    Before 9/11 the only view I had of the New York City skyline was from the top floor of my home in New Jersey. On any day I could look out the window and see the upper 30 floors of the World Trade Center.
