Dylan was only 18, having been born on November 1, 2002 in Chicago before moving to Northbrook in 2004. Dylan's death has broken the hearts of his parents, Chris and Karen nee Teitelbaum, his brother Ethan, his grandfather Leonard Teitelbaum, his uncles Howard S. Teitelbaum, Howie Teitelbaum and Don Buckner Jr., his aunts Jane Waldren and Meg Buckner, his cousins Daniel and Andrew Teitelbaum and Sarah Buckner, and countless friends, coaches and teammates. Dylan is joined in Heaven by his late Grandparents Dorothy Teitelbaum, Don Buckner Sr. and Grace Buckner. Dylan cherished his many friends at Wescott Elementary School, his friends and basketball teammates at Maple Middle School, the coaches, teammates and the families of his Diamond Dawgz Baseball teams, and his coaches, teachers, many friends and great teammates at Glenbrook North High School. Above all but his family and friends, Dylan was a Quarterback. Dylan's football career started in fourth grade and football was a constant until his death.

I just saw you on Fox with Martha McCallum. I want to express my sincere sympathy on the tragic loss of your son. I have a son who also battles depression and I know the struggle for both the child and the parent. Your family is in our prayers. May his memory be a blessing.

We are Lee Dame Gordon´s parents and live in Minnetonka, Minnesota. We have met you on walks we have taken with Lee when we visited. We are heart broken for your beautiful family and we want you to know our prayers and thoughts are with you. We are both pharmacists and have studied the medications for depression extensively. We know all too well how difficult it is to manage this horrendous disease with the current science available. We also know you all must have done everything you possibly could have done to help your son. This is a very silent, private disease and may God bless you as you reach out to the community to help others like Dylan. We pray for your family and know Dylan´s memory will always be in your hearts and the whole community near and far. Sending love and care.

Just saw you on FOX news. Deeply saddened for your personal tragedy, but want to thank you for reaching out regarding mental health issues. I have a 14 yo son who has been suicidal, and the stigma must change. May God give you strength as you grieve your beautiful son.

My sincerest condolences to you and you whole family. I can´t imagine the pain and sorrow in your hearts right now. You may not remember me, and that´s ok. I was in class with Don at St. Tars and our moms were friends. A classmate shared an article about Dylan and I was so saddened for you all. Prayers that you find peace and maintain beautiful memories.
