Kutztown High School teachers and local civic groups have launched a campaign to raise money to help with funeral expenses for a student who died this week. Jonathan M. Kelley, 16, of Greenwich Township, a sophomore at Kutztown High, died of complications related to pneumonia on Tuesday in Reading Hospital. Jessica Ortiz-Eichert, a life-skills teacher at the high school, helped launch the fundraiser. "He was my student. I had him all day for two years," she said. "I'm so thankful that the community is reaching out to Jonathan's family." Funeral director Deron K. Youse said Ludwick Funeral Home in Kutztown has started an account at Sovereign Bank, 61 Constitution Blvd., Kutztown. Donations can be made to the "Jonathan M. Kelley Memorial Fund" at the bank or by mail to Ludwick Funeral Home, Box 292, Kutztown, PA 19530. Hope Cemetery in Kutztown has donated a grave site, Youse said. Born in Texas, Jonathan resided with his mother, Pamela, and stepfather Curtis G. Rismiller. He was remembered Thursday at a candlelight service that drew 200 students to a memorial garden on the high school campus.
