A fundraiser for the family of a young man killed by a snow plow in January has nearly reached its goal.
21-year-old Jayden Rosa and 22-year-old Anthony Toler of Manhattan died after KHP says the two were struck in the early morning hours of January 24 by the Riley County vehicle while walking home in the right lane of Tuttle Creek Boulevard north of Manhattan.
The Facebook fundraiser was created for Rosa’s family under a week ago to help pay outstanding bills. Since its creation, it has collected just under $2,100 of the $2,200 goal. Facebook lists the creator as Scott Voos, who writes that he has the permission of Rosa’s mother, Gueisha, to initiate the effort.
“What has happened to this family is beyond comprehension,” reads the fundraiser’s about section. “Understandably the family is struggling to cope and make sense of their new reality.”
Originally from New York, Rosa was a Manhattan High graduate and Blueville Nursery employee. He is survived by his parents and three siblings.
