What Was Nick Cordero's Net Worth When He Died?

On July 5, 2020, Broadway star Nick Cordero passed away at 41 years old due to "complications caused by coronavirus," per E! News. His wife, Amanda Kloots, shared the heartbreaking news on Instagram. "God has another angel in heaven now," the fitness instructor — who shares son Elvis with Cordero — captioned a photo of the actor. "My darling husband passed away this morning. He was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth."

"I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere," she added. "My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him. Nick was such a bright light. He was everyone's friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday." ⠀

From late March 2020 — when Cordero was first hospitalized — until his passing, Kloots kept her social media followers updated on the ups and downs her husband was experiencing while he battled the virus. Initially, Cordero was put on a ventilator since he was having trouble breathing, People reported in March 2020. One month later, Cordero had to undergo emergency surgery after "a new infection" in his lung was detected. Shortly after, doctors had to amputate Cordero's leg "due to coronavirus complications."

Even though Cordero's life was cut short, it's important to note that he was an all-star on stage and in front the camera. 

Nick Cordero had a spectacular résumé

Prior to his untimely death, Nick Cordero had a very successful career. Cordero made his debut on stage in the off-Broadway show The Toxic Avenger in 2009, per Entertainment Weekly. In 2012, the Broadway star scored the role of Dennis in Rock of Ages on Broadway.

Two years after making his Broadway debut, Cordero starred in Bullets Over Broadway, which scored him multiple nominations, including a Tony nomination and a Drama Desk nomination, per Playbill. Despite not taking home either trophy, he won the "Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical and a Theater World Award" for his role as Cheech in the musical, per EW.Cordero went on to star in Waitress and A Bronx Tale.

Over the course of his career, Cordero also set his sights on projects outside of Broadway. Clearly, the Canada native had an itch to expand his acting skills since he has 10 television credits to his name on IMDb. From 2005 to 2019, Cordero appeared on Blue BloodsLaw & Order: Special Victims Unit, Mob Town, and Queer as Folk.

With his impressive résumé, it makes sense that Cordero had an equally impressive net worth. While it's not clear exactly how much Cordero was worth at the time of his death, it's estimated that his net worth was somewhere between $1 million and $5 million.

Nick Cordero and Amanda Kloots were a power couple

Nick Cordero made a name for himself in the entertainment world, but his wife, Amanda Kloots, is also a star thanks to her work in the fitness industry. Together, the pair made quite the impression on their fans.

When she was 31, Kloots was cast in Bullets Over Broadway, which is where she first met Cordero, per People. However, the show closed "after only three months," and soon enough, she "found [her first] marriage unexpectedly and abruptly ending after seven years." However, as the saying goes: When one door closes, another opens, and that certainly rang true for Kloots.

"I had been teaching fitness classes for the past few years as a way to get by in between shows," she told Time magazine in 2018. "I had never planned for it to be more than that, but I quickly found it was something I loved doing." As a result, Kloots started her own class called The Rope in New York City in April 2016, and the following year she tied the knot with Cordero."Life can definitely throw you some ups and downs, but one thing I've learned is how strong you become from the lowest times in your life," she told Time.

Our thoughts are with Kloots and Cordero's family and friends during this difficult time.
