Alejandro Cordero

Family Tribute:Alejandro Cordero (Alex) was born in Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, New York. Alex lived all his life with his parents, Moises and Teresa Cordero, and his two brothers, Moises Vladimir (18 years old) and Wellington (17 years old) on 164th Street in Upper Manhattan in New York City. During his childhood, Alex attended elementary school at P.S. 128, then attended Stitt Middle School. In 1995, Alex graduated from George Washington High School.

During Alex’s high school years, he became a very popular and well-respected young man who was loved and admired by his peers and schoolteachers. Among other things, Alex was a gifted athlete who participated in his school baseball and basketball teams.

In 1995, Alex was admitted to the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) and Berkley College, where he obtained an accounting degree. Upon graduating, Alex worked for Marsh & McLennan Companies at the World Trade Center.

Alex can best be described as a kind, noble, loving, affectionate and responsible young man who was loved by all who had the fortune of knowing him. Like any other young man, Alex had all his life ahead of him. He had big dreams and great plans for the future. He wanted to further his career in accounting so that he would have a better life and help his family. However, on that terrible day, September 11, 2001, Alex was suddenly and violently taken from the lives of those who loved him: his parents, Moises and Teresa Cordero; his brothers, Moises Vladimir and Wellington; his grandparents, Minda and Lulo; his fiancee, Sonjare; his uncles, Felix and David; his aunts, Ruth, Loida, Ada, Ivonne, and Provi; a special friend, Nurellis; and a host of cousins and friends. Alex’s untimely death has left in their hearts great feelings of pain and sadness.

Alex, we will never forget you. We look forward to that day in which we will meet again in Heaven. Until that fateful day comes, we ask God to grant us solace and strength to endure the pain of your absence.Friends and Colleagues Could Confide in Him

Everybody around Broadway and 164th Street knew Alejandro Cordero. The young men on the corner - his old baseball pals who now spent their time hanging out and hustling - straightened up when they saw him walking down the street.

'Yo, hide that,' they told the younger ones with cigarettes in their hands.

Cordero, a 23-year-old with a broad grin, had a habit of marching underage smokers back home to their mothers and giving them an earful on the way.

Unlike some of his old friends, Cordero's dreams extended far beyond the corners of his upper Manhattan neighborhood. He had an associate's degree from Berkeley College in midtown Manhattan and a good job high in the accounting department at Marsh & McLennan's offices in the World Trade Center's north tower. He was living at home and saving up money for a four-year degree in business.

But 'he never turned his back' on someone just because they chose a different path, said his mother, Teresa Cordero of Washington Heights. In return, he got respect. 'The worst kids on the block ... they'd tell me, 'Señora, Alex is a good kid, he's the best.''

Cordero was the first of three sons born to Teresa and Moises Cordero, Dominicans who met in the Bronx and settled in Washington Heights. As he grew older, his mother told him to always help people who needed it, like the old women in their building who struggled with too many grocery bags. It was more a reminder than an admonishment. 'He was born to be like he was, very caring,' his mother said.

And so Cordero became the go-to guy. 'I am the counselor at work, I am the counselor at school,' he told his mother over dinner last summer at the family apartment. 'Everybody comes to me for problems.' Even his ex-girlfriends knew they could count on him for emotional support.

But his heart belonged to his girlfriend of three years, Sonjare Almadacar of the Bronx. They were talking about marriage and starting their own family. Cordero even knew exactly what he wanted their son's bedroom to look like: a ceiling painted to look like the sky, a carpet like green grass with red squares for bases and baseball bats on the walls.

He and Almadacar were saving for a vacation package to Santo Domingo when he was killed in the Sept. 11 attacks. 'He never got a chance to show what he could do,' his mother said.

I recently visited the 9/11 Memorial Pools and the first name I saw was Alejandro Cordero. My last name is also Cordero so I especially felt the need to pray for the family and do a little research, thus leading me to this site. From what I read, Alex was an amazing person, someone id wish i had known. I hope and pray continued strength to his Family and friends. Que Dios los Bendiga.

Dear Alex, It has been 20 years since the tragic event of your unexpected passing that Tuesday morning, on September 11. Yet I will never forget that smile of your yours! Last time I saw you was about a month before 9/11. We happen to be at Jimmy's Bronx Cafe, Fulanito was playing that rainy Saturday night. It was sooooooo packed and the Patio side was closed (my brother and friends made it in), but you and I and countless others were stuck on the other side. So we laughed and danced for a couple of songs and caught up since our days in the high school afterschool program we had met at. My kids always ask if I knew anyone that had passed in the towers (I worked on the 89th floor but was in school and had to report to work but after my courses). My heart hurts to answer them "Yes a couple of people, but Alex, his smile was real and contagious." May your family continue to find peace in their hearts and you rejoice with all whom have crossed over. Q.E.P.D. Alex... hasta un dia que nos crucemos, ojala y haiga musica! R.I.P. my friend

I lived next door to Alex from birth to about 4 years of age. I recall a couple of times we played together but I moved back to the neighborhood years later and our friendship grew. Without a doubt the nicest person I have ever met. Always warm hearted and never had a malicious or selfish though. He was a good influence for me growing up. Iâ m proud to say that my son Alex received a similar demeanor. I miss you bro.

Wow. I imagined this page was long defunct, but I see love truly does last. My thanks on behalf of my entire family for your beautiful words and memories. To Marsh & McLennan for keeping his memory alive via this site. Wow Quique! that blew me away. Miss you brother. We lost Alex when I was 18 and he was 23. As a 33 year old man, with my own family, I still feel like his little brother. He was ages older than 23 in mind and spirit. I miss him dearly. It never goes away. But seeing this outpouring of love over all these years tells me God has plans for us all, and we must never question it. Many thanks. And I wish you all nothing but the best. Feel free to Join our family every year at the memorials downtown. We're always there. Come with your stories and hugs. Moises V. Cordero Jr.

I was so pround to hear Alex had gone on to do great things his little brothers wre about my brothers age and now that im 36 it still pains me to know that Alex's family hurts on every 9/11 anniversary.

When times get a little rough, or when my thoughts become negative I find myself thinking of you. I remember that warm smile, that cool charisma and that look, the small nod or wink, that you would give us in a game of football. I think of that confidence you gave us, how you made me feel that I could do anything. I remember and I find myself smiling and thinking good thoughts again. You gave a lot to me growing up and even now you continue to give. I don't know how you do it. I wish you were still here. But all I can do is be thankful that I have these memories in my life.

Alejandro, I cannot believe it's been 7 years since you and so many others were taken away from family and friends on the dreadful morning on September 11th. Last month, I walked by Ground Zero and had so many mixed emotions. I could barely look through the fence to get a glimpse of what could have been, but isn’t. On this day, I remember you as the person I met in college…outgoing, respectful, helpful and cheerful. This is how I will always remember you. RIP Alejandro. Umali

I remember I saw you that very morning on my way to school I don't remember exactly what we talked about but we had a small conversation and it always just replays in my head. I'm not too proud to say I love you man and rest assured I will always be there for your mother and brothers no matter what. From the corner of 164th and Ft. Wash A.K.A.

I actually went High School w/ Alex. In the high school year book he wrote his baseball no. and reminded me that friends regardless of the distance between them last forever. Our senior year was when we had the most classes together. My name for him was MORENITO and he called me Annie. It was heart breaking to find out about his death. However, I know what lost is because I lost a close uncle on Flight 587. To the families I know it hurts and it'll continue to hurt but put your sight on the Lord. At times we aren't satisfied w/ the way things happen however, always, always remember that he giveth and he taketh away. May the Lord continue to provide light in your darkest hour.

I read such lovely things about you on this page and realize you were all those things and more! I wish I could see you again…in a dream, at a glance to simply say “Thank You”. Your charisma and out going personality is what this world needs more of. God Bless You! To Alex’s family…GOD BLESS YOU ALL. And to MMC Thank You for keeping Alex alive on your page.

I knew Alex from Stitt Junior High School and I bumped into him a few times in school. A very nice guy that most people would ask for advice or help. I know I wasn't as close to him as most people, but I can remember a young man always going to his classes with his friend with a smile on his face. I was in shock to find out that it was him who had passed, but I know that God has him in a better place than here. I send my condolences to his family and friends. May God bless you Alex and keep you in his glory forever and hope to see you there one day. Sincerely; Domingo Canela Jr./STITT JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT

My gosh I don't know where to begin I've known Alex since I was a little girl we both attented Arca de Refugio. My family knew his family we were considered a huge family.The last time I ever saw Alex was on a camping trip in the year 1998 he looked so happy and energetic. I remember how we all sat in the tent with his brothers and told scary stories. It so weird because the day before that tragic event happened I thought about him and his family.I recall asking my cousin for their phone number but unfortunately this had to happen. Alex and I might not have been blood related but he was like family to all of us. I'am very fortunate to have known him he was always so happy even when he was upset. Alex thank you for the good times,Moises and Wellinton you guys stay strong and sweet and to everyone else in his family stay faithful in God. WE LOVE YOU R.I.P.

Alex: Man, I can't believe this aspiring young man has passed away. Alex and I were in elementary and junior high school together. I always thought about these people whom I went to these schools with as links in my life's chain. I always remembered all my classmates and their names so well, that their faces would light up whenever we bumped into the street. But Alex, I miss you brother. I heard the rumors of your passing surface after a few months after the WTC tragedy but I couldn't believe it. Until I drove passed 164th Street and Fort Washington Avenue and looked up to the street name and saw Alejandro Cordero way. It was then that my eyes watered from the unfortunate truth. Man Alex, I still have the Stitt yearbook and look at your picture and still can't believe that you have moved on. I remember seeing you in August, one month before the WTC attack. I was so happy for you when you told me about all of your accomplishments. Rest in Peace my dear friend for you will be missed. Much love goes out to your parents--thank you for having brought such a beautiful person into this world. I offer my condolences to your family and parents. Much love to you Alex.

Alejandro 'Alex' Cordero. When I say that name in my mind so many memories come back. I was only 7? or so when we met? I was some little kid and you were my best friend's oldest brother. Soon later, you became my big brother too and watched out for me like I was your own flesh and blood. I miss you so much, but in your memory, I won't cry. When I think of you, I'll think of your smile, the way we played dominoes together and that wink you gave us when it was our turn to catch the ball in a football game. If theres anyone I could be more like, or that I try to be more like its you, Alex. And thanks to you, we can all be better people, people more like you. Because you left some of yourself with everyone, you always gave all you could. And because of that, you'll never really be dead, cause you live in all of us. With Love, Your Brother - John.

Alex was in my calculus class at Berkeley College in 2000. This class was the worst for me, but check out how Alex was the bomb at it! He helped me and other classmates at understanding calculus enough actually pass the class. I for one needed to pass the class, as it was my last requirement to graduate, and because Alex took the time to explain the formulas in calculus, I along with several other classmate passed calculus and graduated in April 2000. I was always thankful to him and when I saw him, I would always say 'Loco...gracia!' and he would smile, as if he was saying 'It was nothing, I'm happy I helped!' This was Alex! It saddens me that he is no longer in this world, but at least he's in a much better place. After the events of 9/11, I called Berkeley College and Marsh & McLennan trying to find out any information possible about his whereabouts and family and no information could be given. As I read Alex's tribute and learn of his long family and fiancee it saddens me more to think of all the pain they are going through today, a year after the tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to Alexs' family, fiancee and friends. May he rest in peace!

The few times that me and Alex got together we always had fun. Alex is a very simple, sincere and wonderful guy, just like he is a friend. Alex we will never forget you and I promise you that Alexander will know who his Godfather was. I'm sure that you'll be watching him from wherever you are. We Love You and We'll miss you. We will never forget you.~Darlenis & Alexander~

Alex friendship was one of a million he was like a angel and remain an angel as he looks above us.His personality and everything he done made me realize what type of a friendship he would bring to the table day in and day out. Alex was sure loved by everyone that knew him.There was only one thing about Alex that he always said, 'don't worry about me everything fine'. My blessing goes out to his family....'stay strong'.

Alex was a sweet person and had a relaxed and calming disposition. He was a big baseball fan and played on the Marsh softball team. I'm very sorry for his family and friends.

Alex was not only my co-worker but also my brother. I am a former Marsh employee and had the pleasure to work with Alex for almost two years. He was a sweet and loving person. He always knew what to say to me when I felt down and out. He always spoke about his fiancee and his family. Alex was the type of person that never let anything bother him. Alex, you will always be in my heart. I will never forget you or your advice on many situations. Your sister and long time friend Tara

Alex was a terrific person. He had such a kind heart and a great sense of humor. I loved arguing with him over the Boston Red Sox. He thought Pedro Martinez was the best pitcher that ever lived and I, being a HUGE Yankee fan, couldn't stand to hear that! He will be sorely missed by everyone who came in contact with him.

I'm his fiancee, I want to say that this man is the most wonderful man that esist in this world. I love him with all my heart and I will feel so till the end of my life. I will never forget all the things that we did together. He esed to help me a lot to understand life. God is the only one who really know how was our rilationship,the intensive love and the intensive care that we have for each other. I still feel the same love for him and I don't know why this had happend to him and to others. I hope that God could help to understand (why?) and one day God let me be with him once again, but this time for ever. Loving you Alex tu Chula, Sonjare
