Lindbergh High School students are taking to the streets to remember the life of a classmate who lost his battle with cancer overnight.

Jake Franzel, a high school senior, died from bone cancer.

His friends have supported him over the years with blood drives and fundraisers, efforts Jake organized to help other kids with cancer.

On Friday, they will hold a candle light vigil for Jake, to honor his life and legacy.

It had been in the works for weeks, and his classmates decided to go on with the event. They also plan to gather outside his parent’s house on Samoa Court in Crestwood to show the family how much they care.

His friends say they will keep Jake in their hearts, always reaching out to help kids with cancer as he did.
