Darryl Roman Burt II , an active member of the Jacksonville Jaycees, was remembered in a Monday morning Facebook post that said, “We Stand with Orlando as we mourn the loss of our own.” The Florida Jaycees have also begun an online fund-raising campaign to help Burt’s family.

“We are all deeply saddened by this tragic event and the loss of our Jaycee brother Darryl,” the post continues, adding that local members will discuss ideas for a fundraiser benefiting Burt’s loved ones at its Monday night meeting.

Jacksonville Jaycees president Shawn DeVries said Burt became a member a year ago and the members are “deeply saddened and we are going to miss him.”

“He was very sociable and interested in making a positive impact for people in the community,” DeVries said. “He was passionate and always willing to help. He had just co-chaired his first Jaycees event. And he had just been recommended to be the treasurer for this board, which shows a lot about his background.”
