My boss was a close friend of Nick's and even spent time with him a couple weeks before the attack. His name is etched in my memory. I'm sorry for your loss. It feels like so little and insignificant to say it compared to the gravity of the space left by what was taken from you, but it's all I can say. I intend, upon my next visit to NY, to go to the memorial and find his name on the wall.

KBW Book of Remembrance


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.

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!
