As a neighbor we got to watch Connor grow up and watched him enjoy shooting basketball. He always seemed to be happy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Conor was a special student of mine during his elementary school years.  He truly loved my teacher assistant, Mrs. Bills and missed her terribly when she was absent! I had the pleasure of watching him graduate from IU13 program and see what a handsome young man he became. My thoughts and prayers are with the Zeiset family. He holds a special place in our hearts.
