Denise Lutrey Casalinuovo

Denise and her husband John Casalinuovo, Chinatown landlords, volunteered at Ground Zero nearly every day from the morning of September 12, 2001 to the closing of the site in May of 2002.

They continue to own and manage their building and every year host the reunion of volunteers and recovery workers there.

Denise now suffers from severe thyroid problems which she did not have before working at Ground Zero.
