We pray everyone is safe after the terrible storms in the Northeast and we wish you a healthy, safe and peaceful Thanksgiving. Thank you for supporting Stephen’s Fund and for always remembering Stephen. God bless everyone.
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!
Tyler Brown, our first recipient of The Stephen K. Tompsett Memorial Scholarship, has completed his work student teaching in Australia. Tyler says the following:
G’day! Thank you so much for being such an integral part with my opportunity to student teach in Australia. It was a life changing experience that I will carry with me and share with those close to me. The friendships I made with people, both from America and in Australia will be life long friendships that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Again, if it hadn’t been for your help, I may not have had the opportunity, and it means so much to me that I was able to go and represent Stephen and the memorial fund that you have created. It was an absolute honor.
Thank you again,
On the 11th anniversary of the attacks, please do something good in memory of those lost. Be kind, help someone in need, pray for peace. And never forget.
