I am setting this fundraising campaign up on behalf of Jay's family. Everyone is at a loss for words. Jay has touched the lives of many people, and will forever be remembered as a geniune, honest and sincere gentleman. He has made memorable impressions to not only those who have known him forever, but those who he had only briefly spoken to. Another innocent soul is taken way too soon.
 
Please share this campaign with your friends and loved ones. Whether you donate $1 or $100, or even just pass the page along, it will bring us one step closer to aiding the Goodfriend family during this awful hardship.

Thank you sincerly.

This has been the most horrific week of my life, but I have been completely overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of generosity from so many people, most of whom I don't know and many who didn't even know Jay.
I was already honored to be Jay's mother, and am even more so after seeing how he has so positively affected so many people's lives.
Next week will be difficult as well as I make final arrangements for my only child, but I will try to respond with more personal thanks soon.
But please know, this generosity shown to me is appreciated more deeply than I can express.
My love to you all.
RIP Buddy

My sincere condolences to his Mother. When I heard about this on the news and then say your Facebook post my heart just dropped. No parent should have to bury their child. I pray that the police figure out just what happened and that there will be closure for the family and friends of this young man.
