The four victims of Sunday’s train derailment have been identified.

Jim Lovell, an NBC audio engineer, was one of the four people who died when a southbound Metro-North train derailed on its way to Manhattan on Sunday morning.

The other three victims are Kisook Ahn, 35, from Queens, Donna Smith, 54, of Newburgh, and James Ferrari, 59, of Montrose.

The Today Show remembered Lovell, one of its staff members, on Monday morning.

Lovell was an NBC audio engineer who was headed into Manhattan yesterday morning to rehearse for the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting.

He was one of four people who died in the accident.

"Jim was a friendly and welcome presence around here. He was also an enormously talented guy who always did his job with grace, even under extreme pressure,” said NBC’s Matt Lauer. “He was there working tirelessly with a smile on his face, and in the words of his son Finn, “’Words can't express how much my father meant to me, rest easy dad I love you.’”

Ahn's roommate says she was a nurse and was likely heading home from the night shift.
