On 3/14/2017 at approximately 630 pm Andrew Dillman was working on a yacht charter where he was the first mate. The charter had a group of students on and they were anchored near Shell Key. Five of the yacht goers jumped into the turbulent water for a swim and were attempting to get back on the boat when one of the students was unable to swim and started struggling. Andrew jumped into the water to save the student and was swept away by a current, Andrew has not been seen. Rescue efforts are remaining in effect until Sunday.

  I am asking for any type of donation for the family, Andrew is my best friend and one of the greatest human beings on the face of this earth. His heroic act is a direct reflection of how selflessly he leads his life. The family are currently down in Florida, and any financial support can help dearly things are expensive and I know this has everyone caught off gaurd. Andrew would give the shirt off his back to someone he just met he is a pure soul with a heart of gold.

I remember back when we went to Transfiguration we use to be obsessed with the Titanic and we had this creative idea to build a board game after the Titanic. A few years ago you reached out to me asking me how I liked working on a cruise ship because it was something you were interested in and you followed your dream. I'm glad to know you spent the last few months living life to the fullest. I could tell by all your post you were truly happy living and working in Florida. You will truly be missed. God rest your soul.
