The College of New Jersey is mourning the loss of one of it’s student-athletes.
Freshman Michael Menakis passed away this afternoon at Trauma Unit of Capital Health in Trenton. He was also a member of the men’s basketball team, where he averaged 0.9 ppg in 4.9 minutes over 11 games.
In his short time at TCNJ, he was majoring in accounting and was a member of Sigma Pi fraternity. Funeral arrangements have not been made at this time.
It is unclear what Menakis was in the hospital for. However, there was a gofundme.com page started on May 12th by Nancy White Rickenberg.
There was a picture on the page of Michael hugging his two sisters. The page hoped to raise $25,000.00 and raised $23,000.00.
Also, according to the page, the family was splitting time between their home in Ho-Ho-Kus and the hospital in Trenton.
