The death of Wagner College student-athlete Nashawn Brooks ’23 following a June 9 traffic accident came as a deep shock to the Wagner community and the Seahawk football team as well as his former classmates, teachers and coaches at Irvington (N.J.) High School, where he had been named the 2019 male athlete of the year. A memorial gathering on the steps of his alma mater, organized by Irvington’s mayor, was attended by more than 200 grieving friends, classmates, teachers, coaches, community leaders and neighbors. “Nashawn was loved,” said Wagner language professor Dane Stalcup. “He was excitable in the best way, and he was interested in the idea that there are other things in the world to know about.” President Joel Martin said, “This is an unimaginable, tragic loss. He will forever be part of the fabric of Wagner College.”
