1995 – Matt Ohnemus

1995 – Matt Ohnemus (Graphic Design) sent us an email recently with a couple of updates. First, Matt is still working in New York as Art Director for the two local Fox stations in the city. He and his wife Phyllis live in Long Island City with their three-year-old son Jackson. Matt had recently had an email from classmate Matt Riva (Graphic Design 1994), passing along the news of the death of another NESADSU alum, David Watts (also Graphic Design 1995). Dave, below, who was a graphic designer for the Boston Fox affiliate, Fox-25, and who lived in Fairhaven, MA, died on July 10th of this year after a short illness. An avid music lover and gardener, he is survived by his wife Marilyn and two children, Danica and David, as well as a brother and sister and one grandchild. As Matt Ohnemus remembered, “I had very fond memories of going to school with Dave on Newbury Street. Dave, Jay [Shippole] and Carol Conquest were a great group of classmates and I learned a tremendous amount from Dave and the others who were starting new careers by going to NESAD.” You can get in touch with Matt at mattohnemus@me.com.
