From Constance (Connie) Watz: Remembering Carlos Talisaysay ... on a different level than just being co-workers: I had worked with Carlos in Corporate Financial Reporting Department. A real nice guy.
When Pope Benedict came to New York, my friend Carolyn and I had tickets from our parish
to see the Pope at Yankee Stadium. However, we were seated alphabetically ... Carolyn with those last names beginning with "T" and I was with those in "W". Carolyn happened to be sitting next to Carlos and in conversation heard that he worked for Chase, both learning that Carlos and I were once co-workers in the same department. Carlos graciously changed seats with me so that Carolyn and I would be together and not "get lost in the crowds" afterwards. I often think of that day and Carlos Talisaysay. May he be blessed with his eternal reward in heaven!
