Lacrosse Tributes: Cornell Hall Of Fame Attacker Eamon McEneaney Lost His Life 10 Years Ago Today In Sept 11 Attack


Eamon McEneaney… and 657 other Cantor employees were lost because there was no escape from the impact zone near the 105th floor of Tower One. It took five days to find his remains. A decade

later, (his wife) Bonnie said, “You live with it every day. If you lost someone there, that day never leaves you.”

…McEneaney’s greatest fame came on the lacrosse field, where he is still regarded as the greatest player of his generation. What he accomplished at Cornell is still celebrated, 10 years after his death and nearly 30 years since his induction into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
