Suzanne Ircha’s Career
Suzanne Ircha had a brief career as an actress, with minor roles in Pontiac Moon, Return to Two Moon Junction, an eposide of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and a “Wing Commander” video game . But the Cornell graduate is better known for equity sales.
A financial whiz, Ircha worked for Sandler O’Neill and Partners, the investment banking firm. Back in 2001, her office was in 2 World Trade Center.
On September 11, 2001, a breakfast meeting with clients went long and Ircha was late to work. She was in her car at FDR Drive while on the phone with Herman Sandler, the founder of the firm, when she heard the explosion and saw the Twin Towers on fire.
Sandler and 75 of Ircha’s colleagues were killed in 9/11. The devastated surviving employees of Sandler O’Neill, including Ircha, were left to pick up the pieces and rebuild the firm.
Ircha was the only surviving member of the equities team. She was among the few who returned to work the following year, while others couldn’t bring themselves to come back.
Suzanne Ircha reportedly no longer works in equity sales. She’s more focused on being the First Lady of the New York Jets. She was the brand ambassador of the NFL Fit for You campaign and also led fashion events in the league.
