Hometown: San Rafael, California
Occupation: Consultant and writer
Reason for travel: Returning from grandmother’s memorial service

On September 11, Lauren Catuzzi Grandcolas was returning from her grandmother’s funeral in New Jersey to her home in San Rafael, California. Raised in Houston, the University of Texas graduate had 15 years of marketing and sales experience, and recently left her work as a consultant at Good Housekeeping magazine in order to write a book intended to inspire women to follow their dreams. She and her husband were expecting their first child. When she called her husband from on-board the plane, she left a message saying there was a problem on the flight. She conveyed her love for him and asked him to tell her family that she loved them, too. Grandcolas’ sisters were able to complete and publish her book, You Can Do It: The Merit Badge Handbook for Grown-Up Girls.
