Governor Gina M. Raimondo was joined by members of the General Assembly and other state officials this morning to unveil a plaque listing the names of Rhode Islanders lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The commemoration ceremony took place adjacent to the 9/11 memorial – commissioned by Governor Lincoln Almond – at the Rhode Island State House.
Sponsored by Rep. Gregory J. Costantino (D – Dist. 44, Lincoln, Smithfield, Johnston) and Sen. Stephen R. Archambault (D – Dist. 22, Smithfield, North Providence, Johnston), the General Assembly passed legislation in 2018 directing the Department of Administration to add the names of Rhode Island residents who were killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 to the memorial.
The names of those lost to Rhode Island on 9/11 are as follows:
- David Lawrence Angell
- Carol Marie Bouchard
- Mark Lawrence Charette
- James Edward Hayden
- Amy Nicole Jarret
- Kathryn L. Laborie
- Shawn M. Nassaney
- Renee Tetreault Newell
- Jessica Leigh Sachs
The ceremony also honored the members of law enforcement, first responders, military and others who lost their lives in the War on Terror.
