Vigil held for Milwaukee teen killed in garage collapse

Created by

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Family and friends of a teenager killed while on his way to Summerfest three years ago are carrying on his legacy.

Jared Kellner was 15 when a concrete panel fell from a parking garage in Milwaukee, killing him and injuring two others.

At a vigil Monday, people who knew Kellner pledged to continue his goal of making the world a better place, by starting an anti-bullying campaign.

"He lived and breathed with us. His love was unconditional, wanting the world to be a better place and being there for other people," said Jared's mother, Dawn Kellner.

Kellner would have graduated from high school this year.
