Remembering Jill Janus And 9/11 On The 20th Anniversary
It's been 20 years since the Twin Towers fell, and many are remembering where they were and what they were doing when they first heard the news. There are plenty of new documentaries airing this weekend in honor of the 20th anniversary, with new footage, pictures, and stories from those who lived through the horrific events. But one story we won't be able to hear again is from the Huntress lead singer Jill Janus.
Jill Janus was the charismatic lead singer of the metal band Huntress, a statuesque blonde with a powerhouse metal voice. She long suffered mental health issues and had been vocal about her struggles. We were able to interview Jill a few times on the morning show and she always brought a unique and intelligent perspective to our conversations. One of the most poignant interviews was the time we spoke to her about her experience on 9/11.
Jill was a DJ on the 107th floor on Tower 1, where she worked at Windows In The World. She discussed with the morning show her experiences working in the Twin Towers, where she was when the towers were hit and how New York was on the ground during the tragedy. She told us details on the tragedy I don't think I will ever forget.
Jill Janus sadly took her life on August 14th, 2018. You can listen to her full interview with the morning show in the video above.
