Jaime Guttenberg died February 14, 2018 in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida. She was 14.

Her aunt, Ellyn Guttenberg, told the New York Times that Jaime loved to dance-"sometimes she went on for hours."

Jaime's father, Fred, told friends and neighbors via Facebook: "We appreciate all of the calls and messages, and we apologize for not reacting to everyone individually."

The Sun-Sentinel reported that Dance Theatre president Michelle McGrath Gerlick announced on Facebook that young dancers from around the country will be wearing orange ribbons at dance competitions this weekend, in honor of Jaime's favorite color.

Legacy mourns all those who died at Stoneman Douglas.

Dear Jaime and her family,
I would like to extend my sympathy, and my love. I did not know Jaime, but from what I heard she was an amazing dancer, and a wonderful girl. Jaime was also beautiful and had an amazing smile. I am the same age as she was when she was taken. I cant imagine going through what you are going through. I would like to send all of my condolences and she has inspired me to be a better person. I am with you. Rest In Peace Jaime.

I was shocked to know that my own best friend is gone and is never coming back. I told u in middle school that I was going to be by ur side through the hardest times but I had to move and I wish it was me instead of u and I wish u were here.

Hi. I was touched by the story of the shooting. I just want to say all my thoughts and prayers are with Jamie. She's a special girl and she didn't deserve what happened to her. It breaks my heart but I know she's in a better, safer place. She will always be missed.

Jaime,
I never met you, I never knew you and I will not have the chance to. However you have been such a light, even in your days of passing. You are helping bring change to a situation that should have been handled in 1999. You have brought awareness to an epidemic. Your family is fighting for you, your school is fighting for you, much of todays youth is fighting for you.
zikhronah livrakha - may your life be of blessing.
happy birthday Jaime.

I saw the "In Loving Memory" tribute you wrote about Jaime on the back of the Dance Theatre performance booklet on June 2, and I was deeply moved by her beauty, her passion for dance, and the tragedy which occurred. I did not know her or your family, but my heart aches for your loss. There simply cannot be anything more painful in life. I send you my deepest sympathy.

Thank you for offering a hope for a future when families don't have to suffer like yours is suffering now. It's clear Jaime was loved and cared for and that she found real passion in living - how wonderful that you gave her that.

My name is Sue Holleger and I live in Milford, Delaware.
I have been a daycare provider and a preschool teacher as well as a Mom.
Children have been my life just like yours.
I also work one summer at The Music School of Delaware in our small town of Milford.
I had the pleasure of meeting several young dancers from a local dance studio.
Watching these young girls do amazing things together was just breath taking and a blessing.
I know there were many other victims at the school Jaime and your son attended but Jaime has really touched my soul.
I do not know the pain you are feeling and I know you want your sweet baby girl back every second and every minute of the day.
My neice and nephew lost their 4 year old daughter several years ago in a tragic accident the day after Kaitlyn's 4th birthday 4 days before Christmas.
Visiting my niece at her home one day Denise had found a printed paper online of several comments to please "not" say to her regarding Kaitlyn's death when her death had just occured. Some of them I had found myself saying to people after a loss and people mean well but they truly do not help how you and your family are feeling.
I know people mean well and love you.
I know that I love children and I know that you and your husband and Jaime's brother all loved Jaime so very much.
I know your hearts are just breaking.
I am so glad that you and Mr. Guttenberg have your faith and family for support.
Please know that your loss has effected me so in my heart and I am sure many many others around the country and the world feel the same way.
Please know if I could meet you and you allowed me to I would hug you so tight.
Your Jaime, Your Valentine, is just precious. Try and look at pictures of Jaime a little in time that you can in happy times.
My Mom went through a difficult time when we lost my Dad to pancreatic cancer 8 years ago.
The pain you and your husband and sweet son are feeling is a pain you only know when for some unknown reason you have to bare it.
I am so very sorry for Jaime losing her precious life.
My heart aches for the three of you everyday.
God placed it on my heart to reach out to you and your family.
I hope I'm not intruding in any way.

Love to You All,

Words cannot express the senseless tragedy and loss of your beautiful daughter Jaime. Without even personally knowing her, you can see the kindness that radiated from her through the pictures. I hope that G-d will provide you with the strength to overcome the hard days. This is something that no parent should ever have to endure. Children should bury their parents, not the other way around. Baruch Dayan Haaemet. Be strong.
