Lindsay Morehouse was many things to many people: a beloved daughter, a wonderful friend, a businesswoman, and an athlete.
The daughter of Kathleen Stapleton Maycen and Theodore Chichester Morehouse III, Lindsay was born in Morristown, N.J., on August 27, 1977. At the age of 6, she moved with her mother and stepfather, Dale F. Maycen, to Stamford, Connecticut, where she began school at Greenwich Academy. She attended The Benjamin School from 1990-1994 and was a member of the varsity tennis and soccer teams, as well as the recipient of the Faculty Academic Achievement Award.
Lindsay’s love of the game of tennis began early and grew as she participated in the sport in grade school, high school and college. While completing her secondary education at St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire, she co-captained the tennis team before graduating summa cum laude.
Lindsay earned a spot on the Williams College varsity tennis team during her freshman year and later served as team captain, playing both singles and doubles, which she led to a second place finish in the Division III NCAA’s in 1999. Lindsay earned All American honors in doubles. Lindsay’s unique contributions at Williams were acknowledged in a tribute to her after 9/11, saying that “Lindsay’s upbeat personality, indomitable spirit, and willingness to befriend, engage, and support those around her earned her the respect, friendship and admiration of all who knew her in the Williams community.” She majored in Economics and graduated from Williams College in 2000.
Lindsay began her career in the business world as an analyst for the Windsor Group in Middleburg, Virginia. She moved to New York City in April, 2001 to accept a position as an equity research assistant with Keefe, Bruyette & Woods. One week before she died, she was thrilled to learn that she was accepted to be a mentor in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program in New York City.
On September 11, 2001, Lindsay was among those who tragically lost their lives when the two towers of The World Trade Center were attacked by terrorists. She was 24 years old.
