Andrew Madoff

Andrew Madoff, son of disgraced financier and Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff, died of cancer in NYC at age 48. His lawyer, Martin Flumenbaum, said Andrew was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma, an aggressive cancer of the lymph nodes.

Andrew was Madoff’s last surviving son. Madoff’s other son, Mark, committed suicide on the 2nd anniversary of his father’s conviction in NYC.

Andrew and Mark both worked at Madoff’s investment firm until their father’s well-publicized arrest in 2008.

In an interview with Morley Safer on “60 Minutes” in 2011, Andrew said he was “blindsided” by his father’s massive $65 billion Ponzi scheme.

“Of course I feel the shame. I can barely walk down the street without worrying about people recognizing me,” he said.

Madoff, 76, is serving a 150 year sentence in a federal prison.
