NEW YORK (The Blaze/AP) -- Jeffrey Schreier is one of nearly 3,000 names engraved on the World Trade Center memorial. When family members visited the memorial on Sunday and saw his name, they were upset. Not just because of the memory it invoked, but because it was misspelled.

The family of Schreier told WNBC-TV the R and the second E in his first name were switched on the memorial. So it read 'Jeffery'.

His sister Janice Hart says she couldn't believe it when she saw the error Sunday, when the memorial opened to family members.

Memorial spokesman Michael Frazier tells WNBC the letters apparently were reversed when the name was entered into a database. He says memorial officials regret the error and are working on fixing it.

Schreier worked in the mailroom at financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald. His remains were never recovered.
