Jaime Taylor Guttenberg

Age 14

Parkland, Florida

Independent, fearless, bright; a graceful dancer

Through dance, she was the star; in her family, she was the spirit; with her friends, she was the joy.

Dance was the largest part of her life, and she practiced 13 hours a week. She once wrote, “I dance because it makes me feel possibilities are endless and limits don’t exist. Every time I leap, I feel as though I’ve touched the stars.” She was a straight-A student with dreams of becoming a pediatric physical therapist.

Jaime Taylor Guttenberg, 14, was shot and killed in a hallway while fleeing a gunman with an AR-15 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Feb. 14, 2018.
