This page was established in memory of Carey Gabay, a talented public servant who was the innocent victim of senseless gun violence in early September, 2015. His tragic death has received national attention.

Carey, a lawyer who was an aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, was walking home with his brother and friends after a cultural celebration in Brooklyn, NY, when he was shot while seeking cover from a clash between two rival gangs.

After he was gravely injured, Carey fought bravely for nine days surrounded by his family, including his wife Trenelle, and close friends who kept a 24-hour vigil by his bedside. Sadly, he passed away on September 15.

Carey, 43, epitomized the American story. A son of Jamaican immigrants, he rose from public housing in the Bronx to graduate from Harvard University and Harvard Law School. He dedicated himself to public service, serving as an assistant counsel to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and most recently as First Deputy Counsel for the Empire State Development Corporation, the state’s chief economic development agency.

Giving back was always part of Carey’s story. At Harvard he ran and won election to become the president of the student body. In Brooklyn, he tutored children at a local community center. He was known for his jovial nature, generosity of spirit and an enduring smile. Those he loved are struggling to make sense of this loss and also working to preserve his legacy.


We thank you for your generous support,

The family of Carey Gabay
