Dan was in his office in the North Tower on the morning of September 11. Right after the plane struck that building, Dan called Kathy to tell her that he loved her and to take care of their kids. That was the last time Kathy spoke to her husband.
Dan Trant was one of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terrorist attacks that day. Therefore, Kathy received approximately $4.2 million from the government's Victims' Compensation Fund. She also received an estimated $300,000 in charitable contributions.
