TAREL COLEMAN
World Trade Center
UNBRIDLED AND UNABASHED

Firefighter Tarel Coleman's friends, co-workers and football teammates called him "Prozac." Not because he took the mood-balancing drug, but because sometimes he needed to calm down a little.

While many people have a childhood story involving matches, Firefighter Coleman's firebug past cost him some hair. At 5, he stuck his head into the incinerator in his family's apartment building in Queens. "We didn't notice anything," Firefighter Coleman's brother, John Coleman Jr. , also a firefighter, "until we got upstairs and saw that he had no eyebrows, no eyelashes and no hairline." His chattiness and high-strung curiosity were viewed as charm by his friends. Whenever he prepared a lasagna dinner for his mother, Laurel Jackson, in her Jamaica, Queens, home, she would just watch her son patiently, with her head propped on her hand. "You couldn't stop him," she said. "You had to sit there and listen." Firefighter Coleman, 32, had an intensity that was viewed with dread by his team's opponents and by the referees of the league games he played for the Fire Department.

Everyone knew, after all, that he did not suffer bad calls gladly.

SCOTT THOMAS COLEMAN
World Trade Center
THREE BROTHERS

They were as close as three brothers could be, born in 1966, 1967 and 1970. Now there is just one. "Until Sept. 11, I have never known a day without my brothers," Todd D. Coleman, the oldest, said of Keith and Scott. "I miss them terribly." As boys, they wrestled in their Westport, Conn., home, had bunk beds and stole pizza off one another's plates. They went to college, to careers in finance and to satisfying romances. They dreamed of raising their children in one big family with three smart, affable uncles at the top, said their mother, Jean N. Coleman.

When Keith's equities division at Cantor Fitzgerald became wildly successful, he drafted Scott to work for him. It was there, in the 104th floor offices at 1 World Trade Center, that Todd, 35, Keith, 34, and Scott, 31, were together for a last time this July.

At a memorial service on Oct. 20, Todd told Keith's wife, Elodie, and Scott's fiancée, Jessica Nardone, that he understood why men of grace and dignity loved them so. "I will try to live my life in a manner that will be worthy of their respect and admiration," he said. "Their memory reminds me that the world can be a wonderful place."
