9/11 Survivor to Speak at Cedarville

by Beth Ford, Assistant Director of Public Relations

World Trade Center survivor Sujo John will recount the details of the “9-11” events he witnessed  on Wednesday, Sept. 10 in Cedarville University’s chapel program in the Dixon Ministry Center. The event begins at 10 a.m. and is open to the public.

John was on the 81st floor of the first tower, just below where the first plane crashed. His pregnant wife was in the second tower, and in spite of large flames and chaos, both survived the terrorist attack.  

John’s story has been covered in major national and international media outlets, including The New York Times, the BBC, The Times-London, Associated Press and on Billy Graham specials. 

The events of September 11, 2001, launched John’s international motivational speaking ministry. Speaking in over 600 cities across North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Africa, John shares his hope around the world. Along with his speaking, John is founder of YouCanFree.Us, a movement to bring freedom to victims of human trafficking.

Currently John and his wife, Mary, live in Dallas with their three children.
