We Remember

September 11, 2005

The date 9/11 has become synonymous with the worst of our nightmares even as we sadly draw comparisons today with the recent tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. We remember those members of the Georgetown family with significant connections to Hilltop athletics who lost their lives four years ago in New York City. Joe Shea, B'76, Tom Galvin B'90, Patrick Sullivan B'91 and Joe Eacobacci C'96 all worked at the financial firm of Cantor Fitzgerald.

Joe S. was a dedicated family man, a generous man for others, and an avid golfer. He was a loyal son of Georgetown, an alumni admissions interviewer for his alma mater, and a generous supporter, creating an athletic scholarship for talented Hoya golfers. Happily, his oldest son, Patrick, enrolled as a freshman this fall at Georgetown.

Tom, the delightful captain of the Hoya golf team, continued to serve Georgetown as a young alum as president of the 19th Hole Club, the alumni support group for the men's golf team. His commitment to the golf program and his leadership as an undergrad and as an alumnus set a
new standard for all who followed him.


#35 Joe Eacobacci

Joe E., an energetic football captain, followed his brother on the Hoya gridiron and made his mark upon a program growing and improving rapidly under new head coach Bob Benson. An extremely popular player, his jersey number is now assigned to a player designated by the coaches to wear the memorial jersey. Number "35" is being worn again this year by All-America defensive end and captain Michael Ononibaku.

Patrick was a two-year runner on the Hoya track team. He was training to run in the New York City marathon at the time of his death. A fun-loving and affable young man, he always remained in close contact with his Georgetown buds. As his professional career progressed, he generously shared his financial success with members of his family.

Another loss was suffered that day by the Bauer family of northern New Jersey. Two future Hoya lacrosse players, Dave '07 and Stephen '09 lost their father, W. David Bauer, also of Cantor Fitzgerald. Unabashedly proud of his children's involvement in sports, he would be bursting with pride today to know his two boys were student-athletes on the Hilltop.
