    PA - Rachel Jacobs, 39, Philadelphia, 12 May 2015


    The CEO of a Philadelphia technology firm is missing after Tuesday night’s deadly train derailment in Port Richmond.

    Rachel Jacobs, the CEO of online learning startup ApprenNet based in Philadelphia, was on Amtrak train 188 that derailed in Port Richmond late Tuesday night.

    Family and friends told Eyewitness News that Jacobs texted her husband around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday stating that she was on the train.

    The 39-year-old Jacobs was in Philadelphia for a meeting Tuesday. She commuted to Philadelphia twice a week from her home in New York.

    A friend of Jacobs said they are having a difficult time locating Jacobs.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."
