ISR News Story

ISR remembers our alumnus Charles Falkenberg and his family

ISR remembers our alumnus Charles Falkenberg (45), who died along with his wife Leslie Whittington (45) and their daughters Dana (3) and Zoe (8), on Sept. 11, 2001. They were passengers aboard American Airlines Flight 77 when it hit the Pentagon.

Falkenberg was a research director at ECOlogic Corp. He earned an M.S. in Computer Science at the University of Maryland in 1995. His advisor was ISR Associate Professor Mark Austin.

The family was en route to Australia, where Leslie—a professor of public policy at Georgetown University—was to be a visiting fellow for two months at Australian National University in Canberra.

Dana and Zoe were the two youngest victims at the Pentagon.
