Memorial Fund Established In Honor Of Nick Johnson

Santa Barbara, CA - A memorial fund has been established at UC Santa Barbara in honor of Nick Johnson, a sophomore Psychology major and member of the UCSB Men's Water Polo team, who passed away earlier this week in Santa Barbara. He was 19 years old.

"Nick was the best kid, hardest working kid, a first class person and a wonderful student and brother to his teammates," said UCSB director of water polo, Wolf Wigo. "I was lucky enough to be his first coach and along with everyone in the UCSB family and water polo community, I will miss him greatly."

The "Nick Johnson Memorial Fund" is being established to support the aquatics program at UCSB.
