Adam White

Adam White, 25, is among those missing in the collapse of the World Trade Center. An employee of the bond trading firm Cantor Fitzgerald, he worked on the 106th floor of the north tower - a perch his mother thought was far too high.

"It looked like a precarious place to be," said White's mother, Melissa Turnage of Cockeysville. "I wondered how he would get out if anything happened."

White went to Dulaney High School from 1988 to 1989, where he was in the school's drama club and played the doctor in a production of "Death of a Salesman." He finished high school in Atlanta, where his father lives.

He graduated from the University of Colorado in 1998.

"Adam was an extraordinarily passionate young man, and he had a deep love of the environment," said his uncle, Webb Robertson, who called him an avid skier and rock climber.

White parlayed his environmental interests into a job at Cantor that helped power plants reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. He had just returned from Frankfurt, Germany, the Friday before the terror attacks, his mother said.

He has two sisters, Jennifer, 15, and Allie, 14, both students at Dulaney High.
