The new year started with tragedy for the Zagorski family and students at Hamilton High School.
Senior Aaron Zagorksi died on New Year's Day from a gunshot wound, and authorities do not suspect foul play. Students returned to school Wednesday to the difficult news.
Within a day, friends throughout Sussex, Menomonee Falls, and the rest of the country headed to social media outlets to share their condolences and offer words of support. Within a day, the hashtag "#ZStrong" was trending across the nation. Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings, Badgers running back James White, and many other notables tweeted their words of support for family and friends.
On Friday, students at Hamilton High wore red to honor their classmate. Patch has compiled some of the messages sent around the web about Aaron.
The family will receive relatives and friends during a service at 9 a.m. Jan. 5 at St. James Catholic Church in Menomonee Falls. A mass will follow at noon.
