Friends of the two students killed in last year’s crew club accident have planned a memorial to honor their memories.

The memorial will be held Monday, exactly one year after Yaakov Ben-David and Derek Nanni were killed when their boat capsized while practicing with the Iowa State Crew Club at Little Wall Lake. 

Ben-David was a sophomore in accounting, and Nanni was a freshman in chemistry.

The memorial gathering will begin at 8 p.m. and will take place just south of the Campanile. 

All are welcome to come to honor the boys’ lives.
