As a 92 Ohio State graduate with a finance degree, I too make my living in the capital markets, although not actually on Wall Street. We do business with KBH and did in 2001 as well. My path never crossed with Kris, but it is another brick in what is a large wall of the human losses in my industry. I’ve heard many a story from people who lost colleagues. I’m glad his family and friends are able to celebrate what they had while still mourning what they lost.
To use a verse from Alan Jackson’s Remember When:
Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when
