Welcome to the official Richard Cudina 9/11 Memorial Website.


Richard Cudina was working in his Can­tor Fitzgerald office on the 105th floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 when the buildings were destroyed.  The Richard Cudina Memorial Commit­tee has been established to create a monu­ment as part of Lebanon Township Park in his memory. A scholarship fund to benefit deserving local students is also planned for the future.


Richie, outgoing, friendly and caring, touched many lives. His absence leaves a hole in the hearts of his family and friends, and in the hearts of his neighbors and business associates.  A graduate of Kean University, he worked on Wall Street for several years as a broker in Eurodollars at Lasser Marshall, Inc. and brokered foreign exchange and emerging mar­kets for Chapdelaine Corp. He also managed the emerging fixed income desk for Garban Corp. before moving on to develop an emerg­ing market desk at Cantor-Fitzgerald.


Throughout his life, Richie faced many great challenges, and, without fail, he accepted and overcame them all, said his wife Georgia. He was a friendly, witty and gracious person with an infectiously happy philosophy toward life, and he was a loyal and steadfast friend to anyone who took the time to know him.
