Fred Guttenberg is a father and gun safety advocate.
He’s dedicated his life to the cause of gun safety because this time last year, he lost his daughter Jaime in a school shooting.
Exactly one year ago, to the minute at around 7am, I sent two kids to school. Only my son Jesse came home. Jaime was murdered in school. I am forever haunted by my memory of that morning, rushing my kids out the door rather than getting one last minute. Did I say I love you? pic.twitter.com/s2IQHvDIcU

Jaime, a bright-eyes 14 year old, was one of the 17 victims who lost their lives last year when 19-year-old Nikolas Jacob Cruz opened fire on Feb. 14, 2018 on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Highschool in Florida.
Her friends remembered her as “charismatic and lovely.”
Jaime’s brother, Jesse, posted a picture for “National Sibling’s Day” to remember his sister. He wrote in the tweet accompanying it, “Forgot to post this on Twitter yesterday, but not a day goes by where we don’t think about you and the 16 others. I promise were are fighting for change.”
Jesse survived the shooting that claimed the life of his sister and 17 others. Fred Guttenburg and his family are now a vocal supporters of gun reform.
