9/11 widow Jane Pollicino, a passionate supporter of AE911Truth, passed away on February 21 after suffering a stroke, according to Newsday.
Her husband, Steve Pollicino, died in the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Her husband’s remains were never found.
Jane was an active member of NYC CAN, joining over 100 family members of 9/11 victims and first responders who stand side by side with the 1,700 Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth in calling for a real 9/11 investigation.
In 2009, she helped deliver a petition signed by over 80,000 New Yorkers to the New York City Council in an effort to begin a new 9/11 inquiry.
In 2011, she took part in the second TV ad by the Remember Building 7 campaign, in which 9/11 victims’ family members joined architects and engineers in questioning the destruction of WTC Building Seven.
Most recently, Jane took a leading role in educating the public about 9/11 by appearing in our latest documentaries, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out and Architects & Engineers: Solving the Mystery of WTC 7. She spoke in the most touching manner of losing her husband on 9/11, and asked why there has yet to be a real scientific investigation into what took his life and the lives of thousands of other victims. In the film, she pleads for real answers to questions such as, “Why is there no trace of more than 1,100 people?”
She also gave speeches at several major 9/11 Truth events, including the Investigate Building 7 conference in Connecticut in 2011 and the New York City premiere of Experts Speak Out in June 2012. In addition, she spent her last few years giving tours of Ground Zero to visitors at the 9/11 Tribute Center.
AE911Truth founder and CEO Richard Gage, AIA, notes, “Along with courageous 9/11 family member Bob McIlvaine, Jane was one of the most dedicated and consistent supporters of the critically important work we are doing here at AE911Truth on behalf of the 9/11 Truth movement. Her starring role at the beginning and end of Experts Speak Out is a haunting plea for justice that I hope will grip and move the hearts of all who have the good grace to see this film.”
Her moving words at the film’s conclusion will be a lasting memory to us all:
“The country owns this. We were all victims. We all should want answers. It’s not just ours… It’s not just mine. We all lost something that day.”
