Alexander Logan Schachter

Age 14

Parkland, Florida

Musician whose melody was cut short

He was a musician, a car aficionado, an athlete, a friend, a brother and a son.  

He had dreams of qualifying for DECA States and driving his father’s red Tesla. He proudly represented his dream school on his staple University of Connecticut hoodie, a gift from his late mother. However, his posthumous acceptance into the School of Fine Arts at the University of Connecticut would come both too early and too late.

Alexander Logan Schachter, 14, joined his mother in heaven on Feb. 14, 2018. He was shot and killed while seated in his desk in his freshman English class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
