Place of Residence:
Edison, NJ
Location on 9/11:
Port Authority of New York & New Jersey | Structural Engineer

NRI Prem N Jerath, 57, died in the 9/11 terror attacks while saving a fellow worker's life. Prem worked as a structural engineer with Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. His office was located on the 82nd floor at Tower 1 of the World Trade Canter.

NRI Meena said her husband was always helping others and he lost his life while trying to help a person on whose leg a wall had fallen. City named intersection of Oak Tree Road & Wood Avenue in Jerath's name."This corner reflects him. We chose this place because earlier we used to live around here. We passed from here everyday; even now I pass from here. I will get a chance to see this every day," Meena Jerath, widow of the deceased said. She said she felt "honored that the township did this for him". "It is a touching tribute to my husband."
