Mrs Jennifer Riordan, 43, was a parishioner of Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Church in Albuquerque, and her two children went to Annunciation School.

News 9 sat down with an OU Social Justice Professor who was two seats away from the woman who died on the tragic Southwest Airlines flight Tuesday. The archbishop also said he would "pray for the repose of her soul and for her dear loved ones".

Firefighter Andrew Needum of Celina, Texas, was emotional Thursday morning as he recalled the horrifying moments after the engine exploded in mid-air on Southwest Flight 1380.

Together, the men pulled the mother of two back inside the plane.

A second piece of a plane that made an emergency landing after a fatal engine mishap has been found in a Pennsylvania town about 60 miles (97 km) northwest of the Philadelphia International Airport.

The National Transportation Safety Board has said the principal culprit of the explosion was a fracture - most likely because of metal fatigue - of one of the 24 fan blades in the engine. Shrapnel from the damaged engine hit the plane, breaking the window beside her. Riordan was pronounced dead at a hospital from blunt trauma to her head, neck and torso, a spokesman for the Philadelphia Department of Health said.

State police spokesman Trooper David Beohm says anyone who believes they have found debris should call the Federal Bureau of Investigation office in Allentown.

Mackey said she will always remember Riordan.

"Jennifer's vibrancy, passion, and love infused our community and reached across our country".

In a statement to PEOPLE, Riordan's family announced the founding of a memorial website, The Jennifer Riordan Memorial Trust, where people who are interested can support causes that were important to Riordan and help the family meet financial needs after the traumatic event.

WCAX-TV reports Riordan graduated from Champlain College before moving to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she worked as a bank executive.

Needum said he was one of many passengers aboard the flight who helped out in some way.

Peggy Phillips spoke to WFAA-TV upon her arrival in Dallas Tuesday night. They said she was the team's biggest cheerleader.

She says they started losing altitude and the masks came down.

"Hopefully Jennifer knew that she wasn't alone". "She's an incredible person". The blade was separated at the point where it would come into the hub and there was evidence of metal fatigue.

Korean Air said on Wednesday it had not yet been prompted by its regulators for a check but it planned to inspect engines used on its entire 737 fleet by November following the Southwest incident.
