Amy N. Jarret
United Airlines Flight 175
Flight Attendant

Aram Jarret loved everything about his daughter Amy's career as a flight attendant.

"She was the consummate professional,'' the 58-year-old North Smithfield, R.I. attorney said yesterday of his 28-year-old daughter, the third of his four children.

"She was smart, professional, very helpful, and she had no hesitation about putting someone in their place.''

After the horror of the news that Amy was a flight attendant on United Airlines Flight 175 settled in, Aram Jarret also formed an image of what might have happened as terrorists seized control of the flight.

"If there's a crisis, then she would always be one of those people you'd want with you,'' he said. ``I don't know what happened up there, but she would have been one of those people trying to do the right thing.

"But what strikes me is just how senseless this whole thing is, and it's tragic that innocent people get caught in this,'' said Jarret. "She had no chance.''
