Jeremy Logan Glick (September 3, 1970 – September 11, 2001) was one of several passengers believed to have counterattacked the hijackers of United Airlines Flight 93, on September 11, 2001.

Glick was US National Collegiate Judo champion in 1993, while he was a student at the University of Rochester,[1][2] where he was President of the Rochester Chapter of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity, and he later worked as a sales and marketing executive for Vividence, a San Mateo e-consulting company.

Flight 93Edit

Glick's last words to his wife, on Flight 93, were: "We're going to rush the hijackers." Then he put down the phone.[3][4]

Co-workers and family all stated that they were not surprised that Glick took action. Glick's brother-in-law Douglas Hurwitt said "that was my brother-in-law. He was a take-charge guy."[3] Glick's former boss, Thomas Torf said: "He was a no nonsense kind of guy. He took ownership of things. Very focused. He loved his family. He was a good business man. All of us loved him."[5]

Posthumous awardsEdit

On September 11, 2002, Glick was awarded the Medal for Heroism, the highest civilian honor bestowed by the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR).[6]

Glick was awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award in 2002.[7]

In September 2008, the United States Judo Association (USJA), awarded him with an Honorary 10th Degree Black Belt.[8]

Personal life Edit

On August 31, 1996, Glick married long-time girlfriend, Lyzbeth. The two were prom king and queen in 1988. The couple had a daughter, Emerson, on June 18, 2001. He named her after famous author, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Glick has five other siblings, all of whose names begin with the letter "J". He was a middle child among the six children of his family.
