"Let this memorial reflect the legacies of those whose lives were lost, that their unfulfilled dreams and hopes may result in a better future for society. Their unique qualities and characteristics enriched our lives immeasurably, and through this memorial their stories shall live on." - Family & Survivor Advisory Committee
We were forever changed by the events of September 11, 2001. Our thoughts and our prayers will always be with the heroes who perished that fateful day and their families.
To honor these courageous men and women, a New Jersey September 11th Memorial will be constructed at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey, directly across the Hudson River from "Ground Zero" in Lower Manhattan.
The New Jersey September 11th Memorial will be a lasting symbol of our resolve to honor those who died by rising above the evil that claimed their lives. The massive attack, which claimed the lives of 749 New Jerseyans, was intended to break our spirit. It has not done that. It has made us more determined and more resolved.
Donations to The New Jersey 9/11 Memorial Foundation, a 501c-3 tax-exempt organization, are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
