Felicia Dunn-Jones died on February 10, 2002; the cause of her death was determined to be
sarcoidosis with cardiac involvement.
Accumulated scientific research indicates that exposure to World Trade Center dust can cause
or contribute to sarcoidosis with cardiac involvement or a disease indistinguishable from it.
The Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) has thus concluded that Mrs. Dunn-Jonesí
exposure to World Trade Center dust on 9/11/01 contributed to her death and it has been ruled
Mrs. Dunn-Jones has now been added to the list of people who died as a result of the collapse of
the World Trade Center Towers. The total number of World Trade Center victims is now 2,750.
