Our media partners at KPEL are reporting that he was killed in a shooting in Dallas.
The fundraising campaign, posted by his mother, Diedre, says his death was sudden and unexpected.
"He impacted every life he touched. Had a smile that could light up a room. A laugh that would fill the air with warmth. We lost a friend, a brother, a daughter lost her father, and a mother lost her son. A life gone too soon," she wrote.
