Young couple killed by felled tree during Sandy

Two Jewish victims of Hurricane Sandy were Jacob Vogelman and Jessie Streich-Kest, who have been described as “best friends,”  but not boyfriend and girlfriend. The two were killed instantly on October 29 by a falling tree and are pictured together in this 2007 photo. According to published reports, Vogelman had agreed to check on Streich-Kest’s father during the passage of Hurricane Sandy. Once there the two 24-year-olds from Brooklyn elected to walk the father’s pet dog Max during what appeared to be a lull in the relentless progress of Hurricane Sandy. The tree struck them while they walked the dog. Ironically, the dog survived his wounds. (Facebook)
