Nicolet High copes with loss of student

GLENDALE - A tragic loss of life opened the doors to Nicolet High school weeks before the first day of fall classes. Word spread quickly on social media about the death of student Tyler Webb, who sadly took his own life. Students arrived throughout the day to meet with grief counselors.  

"Everyone loved him," said student Libby Suing.
Counselors advised students to stay strong, remember the good times and stick together.

"Like even though a lot of us don't always hang out together, we all came together just for him because he was just such an amazing guy,"  Suing said.

It's a difficult time for family and friends of Tyler Webb, a football player whose smile his friends will not soon forget.
"He was always smiling. Back in middle school, he was dancing for everyone." said Serena Miller.

The loss comes less than two years since two Nicolet high school sophomores were killed in a car accident.

"Haley was actually one of my good friends. So I was like another person, wow! What's going on, like this isn't right." said Miller.
Halee Ludowise-Fischer of Glendale and Jennifer Geren of Fox Point were killed when their car lost control and struck a utility pole. Now with a third death, students have had to deal once again with a hardship.

"It just makes me just wanna keep pushing forward and just look up when I get my diploma and tell him that I made it," said student Michael Moore.

"I need to not take things for granted because you never know. Tomorrow could be different. You could lose like anybody, anybody," said Miller.
Webb's family has set up the "Baylor Webb Family Memorial Trust" in Tyler's honor. You can donate at any Chase bank.

A memorial scholarship is already in the process of being set up.
