Cantor Fitzgerald | Vice President of Operations

John T. Gnazzo was a dedicated worker for Cantor Fitzgerald. He was employed for Cantor since 1992 and at the age of 32 years old his title was Vice President of Operations. John was responsible for 32 employees, including 4 section managers; and disaster recovery director. But John, like others, did not look upon his staff as coworkers, employees, or managers… they were a family. They loved their work and each other. At Christmas time, John would occasionally dress as Santa Claus and with all the monies collected from the staff, he would distribute gifts to the Cantor children.

John was not only a dedicated worker, he was a devoted loving husband of Helene and their two children, John, 3 years old and Jule now six months old. He had it all and they will miss his smarts, strength, loving personality and caring heart. A face we will never forget but a voice gone forever from our lives.
