The social media scene is bustling with tributes to Wednesday night at a Michigan summer camp.
Waxberg’s sister, Jamie, said via Twitter Thursday morning, “Can't even fathom what has happened in the past 12 hours,”
Just three hours after someone created an “RIP Jacob Waxberg” page on Facebook, more than 500 friends, acquaintances and strangers had “liked” the page, with many writing tributes to the teen.
“Jacob Waxberg was a great friend to so many people. He could always make you smile, no matter how you felt,” the page’s unidentified creator wrote.
I am so incredibly sorry for the way it ended like it did. Having two classes with you was such a great experience. There was never a dull moment. You had a smile on your face every day, no matter what. You were absolutely hilarious and could always make the class laugh. It saddened me deeply when I woke up having to hear the awful news. You have an entire school and many many friends mourning over your loss. Our memories with you will forever be cherished in our hearts. You and your family are in our prayers. RIP Jacob, may you be in a better place now.

I've known you since about 6th grade Jacob... I was so looking forward to seeing you next year. I'm gonna miss you so much. Everybody will. I'm sure wherever you are now you're happy. You were one of the happiest people I've ever met, by far. Everybody loves you Jacob, rest in peace.
RIP many people are gonna miss you. You were a great kid that was always there to cheer everyone up. Hope you're in a better place now.
