Dom's Story

Domenick Nicholas Mircovich was born to Domenico and Maria Mircovich on February 3, 1961 at St. Mary's Hospital in Hoboken, NJ. He was the fourth of five children, but the only boy in the family. Natalie, Mary, Dina, were his older sisters and Lina was the youngest one. Dom grew up in northern New Jersey in Hoboken, North Bergen, and Fort Lee.

As a kid, Dom loved sports and hanging out with his buddies. Dom was a multi-sport athlete and he especially excelled at basketball and soccer. He once led his Biddy Basketball team to a berth in a tournament in New Orleans, Louisiana. He had a great personality and made many friends early on that he would keep for his entire life.

High School & College

Dom attended Bergen Catholic High School and was a member of their soccer team. After completing high school in 1979, Dom, or "Mosh" as he was better known by friends, enrolled at Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Dom majored in Business/Finance and minored in selling steaks to his friends. He could have double-majored in storytelling, but he chose to keep that his hobby, not his profession.

Euro Brokers Inc.

After finishing college, Dom found a job with Eurobrokers, Inc located in the World Trade Center. He was hired in the back office in Accounting. He worked hard for the company and slowly moved up the chain of command after serving the company for a number of years.

Marriage & Family

Dom married Marla Marie Vasquez on November 17, 1990 and soon after moved to Closter, New Jersey to start a family. Dom and Marla had their first child, Domenick Jr., on August 26, 1991. He would be their pride and joy, and Dom's only son. Their second child, Marisa, was born on April 1, 1997. Dom and Marla would have their last child, Luiza, on January 10, 1999 and their family was complete with all the joy and happiness that three adorable children could bring.

Growing Family

Dom continued his love for sports by playing golf, hockey, softball, basketball, and also coaching youth sports in Closter. He was active at St. Mary's R.C. Church in Closter and donated his time and talents to local homeless shelters, while continuing his tenure with Eurobrokers, Inc.

Two special occasions took place in 2001 for Dom and his family. On February 3rd, Dom was treated to a surprise 40th birthday party that was attended by many friends and family. It was a joy for him to have all those special people attend and be with him on his 40th. Then, in July, Dom and Marla moved into their new home on the other side of Closter. Dom was very excited to have his new home and looked forward to bringing up his children and spending time with his wife there for a long time.

A Fateful Day

Tragically, on that fateful September 11 morning, Dom passed away in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Dom arrived early for work as usual in Tower Two and headed up to his 84th floor office. Despite surviving the terrible bombing of the Trade Center in 1993, Dom was unable to make it out in time on September 11. He was among the thousands that perished. It is believed that he was attempting to help others in need on his way down the stairs, and knowing Dom, this could definitely be the case. He is a HERO.

Dom is survived by Marla, his wife; Dom, Marisa, and Luiza, his children; Domenico and Maria, his parents; Natalie, Mary, Dina, and Lina, his sisters; and many grateful and loving cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
