He was 36 and lived in Greenpoint.
In North Brooklyn, Mr. Glorieux was an active member of the community and recently joined the Greenpoint YMCA board to contribute his knowledge of finance, economic consultation and enthusiasm for teaching young people.
Mr. Glorieux was a financial consultant at Axa Advisors, and provided financial planning advice to his clients in investments, life insurance and estate planning.
After receiving his M.B.A.in International Marketing from Institut de Hautes Etudes Economiques et Commerciales (INSEEC) in Paris, Mr. Glorieux came to New York to pursue a career in marketing. He soon found a job with Sopexa USA, working with French foods and wines.
It wasn’t long after when he met Mrs. Glorieux, who also moved to the city and began working in the organization’s public relations department in the same year.
“When you first move here, you’re just trying to figure everything out,” Mrs. Glorieux said, remembering the day they met. “A friend of mine, that I was working with, told me, ‘I think that boy has a crush on you.’”
It turned out that her friend had good intuition. In 2006, they were wed and moved to Williamsburg and one year later to Greenpoint.
Mrs. Glorieux introduced her husband to the Greenpoint YMCA in late 2012, where she had been involved with developing events and volunteering with the Strong Kids Campaign.
Keith Hicks, executive director of the Greenpoint YMCA, said he will always remember Mr. Glorieux for his dedication to the program and his eagerness to help develop new ideas.
“He was really concerned about doing something meaningful for the kids and doing something in the community,” Hicks said. “He had a lot of ideas for us in how to fundraise and how to give money back to the YMCA.”
Mr. Glorieux played soccer and always spoke of volunteering to teach the children at the YMCA when he had a chance.
“He was just so excited and anxious to help,” he said. “There was always this certain amount of energy about him and what he wanted to do for the community.”
Mr. Glorieux will be missed by his peers, his clients, his family and the community of North Brooklyn.
“He was always very quick with a joke or a friendly tease,” Mrs. Glorieux said. “If you ever needed a shoulder to cry on, he was just a very generous person and he was kind with everything.”
Mr. Glorieux is survived by his wife and two children, ages two and four.
