On Sept. 11, 2001, Miami University alum Todd Weaver (’93) seemed to have it all: a loving wife, supportive parents and his dream job as vice president and product manager for Fiduciary Trust Co. International. Todd was 30 years old and loved his new job and life in New York, according to his mother, Marilyn. He worked on the 94th floor of the World Trade Center’s North Tower.
Weaver was born in 1979 in Ann Arbor, Mich, and grew up in North Canton, Ohio. He graduated in 1989 from Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio. Weaver met his future wife, Amy Lawson, at Miami and the two moved around the world together, first to Japan, where he taught English. Weaver and his wife followed jobs and schools as they moved to Atlanta, Chicago and New York. He was the youngest senior consultant J.H. Ellwood & Associates ever hired. While working at the Chicago investment firm from 1998 to 2000, he dealt with more than $15 billion in assets. Weaver earned his M.B.A from the University of Chicago in August 2000 and was quickly offered a job in New York.
Weaver enjoyed skiing, spending time with his family and working at his office. According to his mother, he had a lot of ambition and dedication to his job. Weaver worked hard to become the best he could possibly be.
The Todd Weaver Memorial Tree and Plaque is located in North Canton. To honor the best male and female prefect at Western Reserve Academy, the Todd C. Weaver Memorial Scholarship Fund helps pay for their college expenses.
