In Memoriam: Nicholas Brandemarti
Place of Residence: West Deptford, NJ
Location on 9/11: Two WTC
Occupation: Keefe, Bruyette & Woods
Nicky Brandemarti was lost in the World Trade Center attack against our country on September 11, 2001. He had just begun his professional career at the investment banking firm, Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, this year’s generous Platinum Sponsor.
Nicky was a standout student-athlete at West Deptford High School and Fordham University. At West Deptford High School, his record breaking single game rushing total of 337 yards still stands. His single season rushing total of 1204 yards was a school record until our 2002 scholarship winner, Damon McWhite, recently broke it. While at Fordham, Nicky was presented the Bill Tierney Spirit Award for his dedication to the Ram’s Football Program.
Nicky was known for his kindness to others and gregarious personality. With a glimpse of his smile and determined demeanor, one knew he was destined for greatness. Even more impressive was his love for his friends and family and his zest for life!
