Jennifer Gardner Trulson was living her ideal life in New York City until it changed forever on September 11, 2001.
Her husband, Douglas B. Gardner, was the Executive Managing Director of Cantor Fitzgerald, working on the 105th floor of the World Trade Center. Gardner was among the 658 Cantor Fitzgerald employees who perished in the terrorist attacks.
With unvarnished emotion and clear-eyed sardonic humor, Trulson tells an ordinary woman’s extraordinary tale of unimaginable loss, resilience, friendship, love, and healing—which is also New York City’s narrative in the wake of September 11.
Where You Left Me is an unlikely love story, a quintessentially New York story—at once Trulson’s tribute to the city that gave her everything and proof that second chances are possible.
Trulson has been featured on the Today Show, 20/20, and has had an essay published in Harper’s Bazaar. In conjunction with the 10th anniversary of 9/11, she spoke in conversation with the Chief Executive Officer of Cantor Fitzgerald.
