Cantor Fitzgerald | Vice President at eSpeed division

Joseph F. Sacerdote (Joe Sas) was employed as a vice president for eSpeed. He was a graduate of St. John’s University, Class of 1977. Joe was a loving husband to Arlene and a caring father to Andrea and Alison.

Joe’s life was devoted to his family. He was unsurpassed as a father. From the minute his teenage daughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, nothing else mattered to him but to fine a cure for her. He did more than humanly possible, continuing to investigate treatments until her death in April of this year.

Joe was also very loving and supportive of his daughter, Andrea. He inspired and encouraged her to earn her black belt in karate. He was most proud of this and all her accomplishments.
As a husband, Joe was the ultimate partner and best friend. Arlene and Joe never tired of being with one another.

As a son to Frances, he was one in a million. No mother could be more proud. His sisters Jane, Mary and Kiki feel no words can describe the wonderful impact Joe had on their lives. Joe’s nephews and nieces enjoyed his countless family barbeques, swimming in his pool and laughing at his crazy jokes.

Joe was extremely proud of the black belt he earned in karate. The karate school where he trained has honored Joe by retiring his locker with his uniform and black belt in it. Joe gave unconditionally to everyone and had an unforgettable smile.
