Naval, Air Force, and Army ROTC units stood vigil at the Meridian on the University of Rochester’s Eastman Quad to mark the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Among the nearly 3,000 people who died during the attacks were six University of Rochester alumni: Jeremy Glick ’93; Jean Hoadley Peterson ’69N; Jeffrey Smith ’87, ’88S (MBA); Zhe (Zack) Zeng ’95, ’98S (MBA); Aram Iskenderian ’82; and Brendan Dolan ’86.

In 2019, Ellen Bakalian, the widow of Jeffrey Smith, wrote “Everything My Husband Wasn’t There For,” an essay for The Atlantic, which was reprinted with permission in the summer 2021 issue of Rochester Review.
