Daniel "Danny" M. Lewin was a mathematician and entrepreneur. He died at age 31 in the crash of American Airlines Flight 11 in the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attack. Danny Lewin co-founded Akamai Technologies[?], Inc. in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was the Chief Technical Officer (CTO), and board member. At the time of his death, he was a Ph.D. candidate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was said to have become a paper-billionaire when Akamai stock first became available.

Lewin was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in Jerusalem, Israel, where he served as a soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces. He was survived by his wife and two sons.

His parents visited him from Israel in the week before his flight.
