Well Scott I guess I'll be the first to sign and to say what a beautiful tribute has been created here.

Although I never knew you I am inspired by the tributes here and the camp that your family started. You were a special guy and although you are no longer with us your spirit definitely is.

Hey Haze :-) I remember you on this day, the 12th anniversary of the day that changed the world, and sadly took you from this world. I found your name on the 9/11 memorial a couple of weeks, it was easier than I imagined. After spending time at your panel as well as a couple of others I had to find a rainbow appeared. I about lost it when my mom said it was a thank you from you guys for remembering and visiting. I hope you re driving that ice cream truck and having the best time as was your dream. Rest easy, you are never forgotten. Save me up a pb sundae. You and I are having some ice cream when it s my time to leave this earth. :-) Peace to you, Haze. Today and always.

We are a family from the UK and when we visited we all chose a person to research to make it real.
You were my special person.
Just wanted to let you know you are never forgotten.

Biography:

At a memorial service for Scott Hazelcorn, his father learned that there were at least a dozen people who considered his son their best friend. This was not the result of duplicity, Charles Hazelcorn said, but rather a function of Scott's open heart and sunny nature. Each eulogist put it differently: your problem was his problem; he made each person feel he was the only one in the room; he taught people to hug each other; he was the one who made work fun.

"Nobody enjoyed life more, from the minute he got up to the minute he went to sleep," his father said. And to that end there were "Haz's Rules," which included setting the clock radio to a Spanish language station, which he could not understand, so he never had to start the day listening to bad news.

The younger Mr. Hazelcorn, 29, was a trader of long-term treasury bonds at Cantor Fitzgerald; his girlfriend, Amy Callahan, was a special-education teacher. The pair had plans for a summer camp for needy kids. Scott often told his parents that he wanted to buy an ice cream truck, so he could hear the squeals of children all day.

When Cantor Fitzgerald spun off a company called eSpeed, which allowed clients to do their own trading, Mr. Hazelcorn's work group shrank from 30 to 4. In a few months, it was to disappear altogether, his father said. To his son that was good news: between yearly raises, bonuses and stock options in eSpeed, he was planning to buy that ice cream truck.
