Jeremy Glick was on an Airphone, and so was Todd Beamer. “I know I’m not going to get out of this,” the sales account manager for Oracle, who lived in Cranbury, N.J., told Lisa Jefferson, a GTE Airphone operator. He asked her to pray with him and told her that some passengers might make a run at the hijackers. At some point the father of two, whose wife– now widow– is due in January, said absently, “Lisa.”
“Yes,” said Jefferson.
“Oh, that’s my wife’s name. I would like you to call her if I don’t make it through this.”
“That’s my name, too, Todd.”
