Football coach and high school security guard at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Aaron Feis was one of the 17 people killed at the high school on Wednesday, February 13, 2018, according to Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

“I know Aaron personally.” I coached with him, my two boys played for him. I don’t know when Aaron’s funeral is, I don’t know how many adults will go, but you’ll get 2,000 kids there. The kids in this community loved him. They adored him. He was one of the greatest people I knew. He was a phenomenal man.”
