We have received very generous donations from our wonderful donors to date and the Trustees thank all of them sincerely. Emily & I especially thank our donors for their continued remembrance of Stephen.
I’d like to share just one note from the many wonderful thoughts and prayers we receive. As you know, Steve was a Senior VP of Instinet Corporation and Instinet continues to remember and honor him. The following is the letter from Fumiki Kondo, Chief Executive Officer of Instinet Holdings Incorporated:
This year marks the eleventh anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on our country. Stephen K. Tompsett, a valued member of the Instinet family, lost his life on that tragic day while attending the Waters Financial Technology Conference at Windows on the World.
Since then, Instinet has and continues to honor the memory of Stephen K. Tompsett. We are pleased to tell you that the firm has held a “Jeans Friday” at our various locations, whereby our employees, in exchange for a $5 donation, are permitted to wear jeans that day. Instinet has matched those donations and issued a check for the benefit of The Stephen K. Tompsett Memorial Fund for Technology in Education…
Stephen truly embodied the character and spirit of the firm and we hope this modest donation honors his spirit.
Fumiki Kondo, Chief Executive Officer, Instinet Holdings Incorporated
Thank you Instinet for never forgetting!
