Brandenn E. Bremmer (8 December 1990 – 16 March 2005) was a child prodigy from Nebraska with an IQ of 178.[1]


Brandenn was born to Martin Bremmer and Patricia Bremmer.

Brandenn began to read aged 18 months and began playing the piano at age 3. At 10, Brandenn graduated high school through the Independent Study High School conducted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He was only 11 when he took classes on piano improvisation from professors at Colorado State University at Fort Collins, Colorado.[2] In 2004, he recorded and released a CD of his own compositions entitled "Elements". In January 2005, he enrolled in an introductory biology class at Mid-Plains Community College in North Platte, Nebraska, in the first step on an intended path to medical school. He was planning to become an anesthesiologist.[3]

At the age of 14, Brandenn died as the result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He left no suicide note. Patricia Bremmer was quoted as saying that his vital organs were donated the night he died, as he had long made clear was his wish.[4]
