I graduated with Marc at Oceanside H.S. I recently went back to Oceanside for the first time in 26 years and saw his picture on the 9/11 memorial there. It really shocked me.

Biography:

A group of friends named and registered a star in the heavens in memory of Marc Zeplin. How fitting as he was a star in the eyes of so many.

Successful as an equities trader, he formed close relationships with his clients but he was foremost a family man. Marc was very caring and devoted to his wife, Debra; sons, Ryan (3 years old) and Ethan (10 months old), parents, sister, and in-laws. He adored his children and treasured the time he spent with them. Marc was very proud of the new home he and his wife built in Westchester and enjoyed the change from urban to suburban living.

Raised in Long Island, Marc attended Oceanside High School and the University of Michigan where he also continued to earn a master’s degree in the acclaimed business school. Marc’s first career calling was sports casting. He loved sports of all kinds and enjoyed broadcasting games in Michigan during his college years. However, when he returned to New York, he found immediate employment in the financial world and soon started trading at Cantor Fitzgerald, where he became a partner.

Marc was truly a “master of the word.” He knew how and what to say in order to put you at ease, make you laugh, or help you resolve a problem. Marc loved people. He had many friends and demonstrated a zest for living life to the fullest. He was tops in every way. He even worked at the top. The right position for so many years, unfortunately, was wrong on only one day – September 11, 2001. - See more at: http://obits.nj.com/obituaries/starledger/obituary.aspx?pid=146630#stha…
