It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of Marc Anthony Fitorre at the age of 33. Marc was a loving brother, son, grandson, friend, and colleague – and had a special impact on anyone he crossed paths with. We are all at a loss of words at the sudden death of this incredible young man, and his untimely passing has left the family with a heavy financial burden. We are asking for your generous donations to assist with funeral, burial, and related expenses.
Any donations to Marc’s burial fund and the funeral expenses would be immensely appreciated. We have set up a GoFundMe page, https://gofund.me/2f3b1b5b, which we would like you to primarily use.
Marc was born in the Bronx, New York to parents Andy and Nancy Fitorre. He moved around the country as a military child from the West coast to the East coast. Marc eventually settled more long-term in upstate New York for most of his formative and adolescent years. Marc was accepted into the Air Force Academy; however, he chose to attend Columbia University, School of Engineering and graduated with a BS in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, and a Minor in History. Marc excelled in everything he set his mind to. He was part of the initial core political campaign team for Senator John McCain’s 2008 presidential candidacy. He believed in McCain’s ideology and core values as a presidential candidate that he dedicated his entire summer towards aggressively campaigning in the state of New Hampshire where they successfully won the Primary election. Marc was a patriot and a strong believer in the Constitution of the United States of America; steering him to join the United States Marine Corps. The leadership skills he gained from the Marines permeated his very core and could be recognized in other areas of his life. One such area where his leadership and character were recognized was by his fraternity brothers who voted him as President of Columbia University’s Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter. He created lasting memories and life-long relationships with his fraternity brothers. His brothers became his “second” family and he carried a bond with them that resonated throughout his life.
Marc also went on to lead a successful career in investment banking. Marc amassed nearly 11 years of experience in complex secondaries advisory and investment banking. He was provided the opportunity to start his investment banking career as an Intern at M.D. Witter Investments, LLC. He spent two years in the Secondaries sub-group of UBS Investment Bank’s Private Funds Group; later moved to Evercore as one of the first three team members to found their Private Capital Advisory unit in 2013 whereby he spent five years there as an Associate and then Senior Associate. After taking time off to pursue his passion of history by traveling the world, Marc returned to Investment Banking in 2019 and worked for over a year-and-a-half at Cebile Capital as a VP focused on GP-led origination & execution for the Americas & APAC regions. At Cebile, Marc single-handedly developed and closed the world’s first-ever GP-led Continuation Vehicle fund-of-funds transaction. Finally, months prior to his passing, Marc joined Triago Private Equity as a Principal, Head of the Secondary Market Execution Group where he was principally involved in the execution of complex and/or strategic LP-led & GP-led secondaries advisory transactions.
Marc was a very loving person. He donated monthly to children who needed funds for education and was formally in the Best Buddies program which worked with Special Needs children. Outside of work, Marc adored the Yankees, Paintballing, Music, Theatre, Comedy, Board games, Joking, Reading, Learning,…And oh, let’s not forget, his “Ancient Aliens”!
As many of you may know, Marc absolutely loved, cherished, and had a passion for history. He thought of himself as a true New Yorker; through and through, born and mostly raised in New York! One of Marc’s biggest wishes was to be buried on the island of Manhattan. The treasured and historic Catacombs beneath the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral offers one of the last and only options to make his dream a reality. Miraculously and coincidently, the Basilica also has immense wealth and depth of original NYC, American, and Catholic history (https://oldcathedral.org/history).
As the youngest Head of a Secondaries Private Equity group, a former political campaigner, and a former Marine, the Basilica Catacombs is serendipitous, a dream come true and befitting as his final resting place.
