Cruz, from the West Brighton neighborhood of Staten Island, attended Susan E. Wagner High School. The school's Football Parents Club is now collecting funds to help the devastated family pay for funeral expenses.
Ommatt was also a dedicated and loving brother to his 14-year-old brother and 9-year-old sister. To our boys on the Wagner Falcons Football Team, he was a brother. To the parents and coaches, his family is our family. He was always there to help others; he was selfless. He was in his first year of college, and would still find time to come out on the field and help out with his younger brother on the JV team. We would like to help his family with unexpected expenses due to this horrific tragedy.
