Jordan Robinson, of Danbury, Connecticut, died Sunday, Feb. 13 after suffering a medical event at Pace University, school officials reported.
The university said Robinson was a student at the Pleasantville campus.
A GoFundMe set up to support Robinson’s family and pay for his funeral expenses reached $10,414 on Thursday, February 17.
“Jordan was a creative baker, an incredible son, a loving brother, an ultimate teammate, and a protector to those he loved,” fundraiser organizers wrote. “His infectious smile could light up a room. Most people who met him knew that great things lay ahead for this young man.”
