I was jealous of my first cousin for several years, because she achieved the dream both of us had in college. At least I did, until one morning in late winter 1986 when she jumped to her death off a subway platform in Newark, New Jersey.

The copy of the police report that my Aunt Ellen gave to me to read indicated that on Monday, March 3, 1986, Jill was waiting with a crowd on Platform B of the lower level of Penn Station in Newark. The commuters were waiting for the eastbound train for Manhattan. At about 7:01 a.m., she jumped onto eastbound Track 1, which goes to New York. The witnesses said she calmly stepped away as soon as she saw the headlight of the approaching PATH train. Before anyone could stop her, she had tossed herself beneath it. The incident delayed service at the station for several hours, I think, as the police and emergency crews responded.
