Nichole Longo Martinez, a beautiful wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, and friend passed away unexpectedly on November 14, 2021, at the young age of 38. Nichole was born in Pueblo, Colorado on January 25, 1983. Nichole graduated from Pueblo County High School in 2001 and during those 4 years, she was a proud member of the cheerleading team. Her love for cheerleading continued as she attended and cheered for Colorado State University-Pueblo, where she would go on to graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology. Nichole displayed a hunger for education and knowledge, going on to receive her Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University. Nichole had a passion for working and helping the youth community.

Nichole worked with the Child and Family Team as a school-based clinician. During this time, she had a significant impact on many lives in the community. One of Nichole's greatest joys came from watching her son Zeke participate in school activities, her favorite being baseball. Some of Nichole's fondest interests were music, family, and friends, looking for opportunities to combine them all. Nicole loved life and lived it to the fullest, even on her bad days. She had a laugh that was contagious and a smile that would light up the room. Nichole was greatly loved by many and will be sorely missed by all.

Nichole was an amazing person. The memories I have from when we were younger are definitely ones I eill cherish forever. She was 2 weeks and 2 days younger then me and I will always miss out joke of how we were only a different age for 16 days and how she would wish me a happy birthday and then I'd welcome to her our new age. She was with me when I found out I was going to be a mom for the first time. I could message and talk to her about anything, whenever. I loved her and I will forever hold her in my heart and miss her.
