Jennings died after spending several days in the hospital about a month ago. He was 53.
By those accounts, he died just days before the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a non-regulatory government agency focused on advancing measurement science, standards and the quality of technology to enhance the economy, released a conclusive report on its investigation into the collapse of the 7 World Trade Center building. "Conspiracy theorists" believe Jennings gave critical testimony regarding the curious nature of the collapse of the 7 World Trade Center building during the mayhem that ensued on 9/11, a day that changed the world we live in to one of war.
Aaron Dykes cites NYC Housing Authority spokesman Howard Marder:
Marder has now officially confirmed that Barry Jennings indeed passed away approximately a month ago after several days in the hospital, matching confirmations from several other employees at the Housing Authority. Marder commented that Jennings was a great man, well liked by everyone at the Housing Authority, and that he would be missed. No other details were available.
