Emily Pennington   BEECH GROVE, IN
Daniel Jaffke was taken from this earth entirely too soon, but left a lasting impression in his short time here with us all. His heart and mind were always open. He was a deep thinker, a creator, a true friend to so many. He shared his music and love of music with great passion.

May justice be served for the murder of our sweet brother, son, and friend.


Daniel, you will live on in all of our hearts and memories...

I was deeply saddened to learn about what has happened. I hadn't been on fb recently so I've been out of the loop with anything going on. My deepest sympathy to all Daniel's friends and family. Such senseless crimes are just shocking.

I would like to say how sorry I am for the loss of your son, family, friend. I run Karaoke shows "Lyrics Karaoke" just for causes like this. I am sure hoping this weekend I can take my tips and pay it forward... God bless!

I am Daniel's mom and would like to express my gratitude to all who have donated to this fund. Daniel hadn't been gone long before my husband and I looked at each other knowing full well that this was going to be impossible to do right and give Daniel the send off he deserves. I thought I was going to have to have him cremated against his will. But all of you glorious people have erased that problem. there is a Greenwood couple and I won't mention names because I doubt that they would want their names mentioned have donated a burial plot for Daniel and 2 more with it so that we could be buried with him when it's our time to go. Thank you all so much!

Occupy Movement? The goal here was to raise money, not sabotage the effort. Politics shouldn't be mentioned here.

I knew Daniel during the Occupy movement. Nice guy - looking back, that time and music had a common thread ... talking about meaningful ideas. I miss him now.

You all are amazing. Thank you so much. We talked to the funeral home and they estimated $13000 for the funeral. If we have any money left over, it is going into a reward to find his murderer. Again, thank you. Mary

It is so remarkable the amount of money being donated in such a short amount of time. I'm doing my best to spread the word on all of my social media accounts since it's the very least I can do for a friend of 10 years (1/3 of our lives). Still heart broken. Both of my parents and a good friend all in an 8 year span. I'm over this, to say the least.

After an online campaign, Papa John's corporate office will be orchestrating a fundraiser to make a donation. While I had little money to donate, I had plenty of ire and motivation to help any way I could.

Thank you, as a friend to Daniel , to everyone who donated any amount to the Jaffke family. No amount of money can turn back time, but we can at least help ease the pain,stress and suffering of the family by helping financially. Any little bit helps when love is involved. Look how quick we all raised this much already. It makes me cry harder w a smile on my face that everyone pulled in so close all for Daniel and what an incredibly adored man he was.
