Man who died in fire identified

seth-dembowitz-hoboken-fire.jpg1/30/2008:

I was told The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office finally released the identity of the one person killed in yesterday morning’s fire at 1203 Washington Street: Seth Dembowitz. Dembowitz was a 28 year-old Bear Stearns Systems Analyst who worked in the Global Equities Division in their Brooklyn office. He graduated from Rutgers in 2001 with a finance degree.

The cause of death was reported to be smoke and soot inhalation, and thermal burns to the body.

As always, investigators have to treat all unattended fire deaths as “suspicious.”

Police are going to use dental to records to confirm that the badly burned body was Dembowitz. His family was notified of this tragic event.

PS I just recieved a letter from a family member, with all the info for Shiva location, hours, and donations options if desired. If any friends past or present would seek this I would be happy to forward it to anyone.

Thank you for the (mostly) kind words on this webpage. I am Seth’s brother, and I would be happy to give funeral and shiva information to anyone who desires it. My email is dembo45@yahoo.com. I do not feel comfortable simply posting it, my apologies.
