As the community of Casper tries to cope with the sudden loss of a Natrona County High School teacher, friends, co-workers, and students past and present are remembering Jeff Jelskey. The history teacher was found deceased after failing to come to work on Monday. Few details have yet been released about his death.

Social media has been flooded with stories ranging from poignant to funny, praising Mr. Jelskey for his humor, compassion, and teaching ability. NCHS Film and Television teacher Lance Madzey shared a video that was produced last year "by NCTV Students who loved him," he says, and adds they will be dedicating this year's Film Festival later this month to Jeff Jelskey.

"I think that after our loved ones die we all want to do something, anything to help those who are grieving and to honor the one who passed," says Madzey. "That's why I posted the video and why we are dedicating the fest to him."

Here is the video created by the NCTV students.
