Cesar. I was lucky enough to meet and work with you at Invermexico in the 1990's. I have never forgotten you. Your calm happy smile always made my days better. I have not been in NY since 9/11 but next month I will be there at the site thinking of you and your family. My best wishes

I am a teacher at and a 1981 graduate from Brien McMahon High school. My wife graduated from BMHS in 1986 and knew Cesar. I am upset that this school has never done a thing about Cesar losing his life. Even doing something like planting a tree in his memory would have been a good idea. I am going to look into doing something in his memory at the high school that he went to.

Every year I think of you Cesar. I hope you are smiling down on us. You always smiled in High School. I agree with Jim, we should put together something special for you (him). God Bless you & your family.

In Remembrance
Location on 9/11:
Cantor Fitzgerald
The Cesar Fund

Cesar Augusto Murillo was a victim of the September 11th terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. During late August 2001 Cesar accepted a position with Cantor Fitzgerald working as an Equities Trader on their 104th Floor of the North Tower. He is survived by his wife Alyson Becker, his mother Nilvia Mitchell, his father Dairo Murillo and his sister Karolyn Murillo. Cesar was born in Envigado, Colombia on January 21, 1969. With his parents, Cesar emigrated to the United States in 1971. In kindergarten, Cesar became the first member of his family to achieve fluency in English. While his father worked several jobs and his mother struggled to raise a family in a foreign country, Cesar matured quickly, embracing his new role as protector of the family. Cesar developed a strong work ethic and deep pride in his cultural ethic. He would carry this with him for the rest of his life. He understood the obstacles faced by minorities in this country because he had tackled them himself. Cesar decided to attend The University of Vermont, where he actively worked to attract and recruit a more diverse student population. It had not escaped Cesar’s attention that the school lacked diversity. Addressing this flaw became Cesar’s mission. He hosted students visiting campus, worked with the school’s administration on recruiting, and held various positions with the Office of Multicultural Affairs. As his 10 year reunion approached, Cesar made a promise to re-visit this cause. His life was cut short before he could re-involve himself with the university, but he would be proud of the efforts in his name to increase diversity in the student population at his beloved alma mater.
