Remembrance Scholar: Anthony Fatta
Anthony Fatta said he feels it’s his job to tell students about the victims of Pan Am Flight 103.
‘(It is) the Remembrance Scholar’s duty to educate the campus about the Pan Am tragedy,’ said Fatta, a senior religion and political science major. ‘It is a large part of the university story that the student body needs to know.’
It’s a story Fatta has heard since he was a child growing up in the Syracuse area.
To Fatta, SU offers a living tribute to the tragedy – something he is passionate about.
‘I feel that part of being a Remembrance Scholar is achieving the most you can,’ he said. ‘Living life to the fullest will carry on the hopes and dreams that these victims lost.’
Jason Coker is one of those victims. Fatta first saw Coker’s name in a list of the Pan Am victims. From there, Fatta dug a little deeper and found they had similar personalities.
‘We both like being the loud one in a group,’ Fatta said.
They also shared a unique sense of style. ‘He was known in London for wearing a red bandanna and red Converses, and I have weird shoes too,’ Fatta said.
Coker was a junior journalism major studying abroad in London with his twin brother Eric, also an SU student.
