Schuster was a freshman at Oceanside High School. His classmates created a makeshift memorial of flowers in his honor at the accident scene.

Schuster's mother started a GoFundMe page to help cover the costs of his funeral, which has raised over $24,000 from 537 donors.

Schuster's family asked mourners to wear blue to his service, saying blue was his favorite color.
