KJ Nardo passed away in a tragic accident on March 19, 2013 after swerving to avoid hitting an animal.
Keith lost control of his motorcycle and was hit by a motorist. He was born in Norristown, Pa., on March 23, 1988, and was the precious youngest son of Dennis N. and Shannon M. (Kellett) Mastronardo of Wayne, Pa. Keith was a graduate of Upper Merion High School class of 2006 and Neumann University class of 2010 with a B.S. in Business Administration. While at Neumann, Keith met Megan Mazur, a star athlete and student majoring in elementary education. Keith was recruited by Neumann to play baseball and was a proud member of the golf team.
Keith, along with his three brothers DJ, Kyle and Danny, established Nardo’s Natural, an organic skincare line, in 2009. With each of the brothers having a different skill set, they decided that if they work together, they could create a successful company, which they did. Keith, with a background in accounting and business, contributed his financial expertise.
The brothers got their break in 2011 when they submitted their idea to the ABC televised show, Shark Tank. They received a call back, went to Los Angeles to tape a segment, and made a deal with one of the sharks. The show aired on March 9, 2012, and their exposure on the show was monumental in their lives and their business. When Keith moved to Florida to join his three brothers, Megan followed and is teaching k-5th grade.
They planned to be married soon. Megan is like a sister to the family of boys.
Keith had dreams to pursue his passion for golf, and was employed at Belleair Country Club in Belleair, Fla., where he was learning to become a club pro.
Keith will be sadly missed by many, and in addition to his family, he is survived by his maternal grandmother Joan Kellett of King of Prussia, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was pre-deceased by his maternal grandfather Lee James Kellett, and his paternal grandparents Nicholas and Catherine Mastronardo.
Nardo’s Natural is a line of organic skin care products (based in coconut oil) founded by four young handsome brothers, Kyle, Danny, KJ and DJ Mastronardo.
