The family of Quinn Cooper issued the following statement:
"We are in shock this happened. Quinn was only 18 years old. He just graduated in June from RHS. Yesterday was his fourth day of college. Quinn was funny, sweet, compassionate and such a wonderful loving person. He always stood up for people. Quinn and his brother Cody are inseparable. Quinn was going to take his brown belt test on October 10th. He loved dancing and voice acting and playing Ingress with Cody, my oldest son. I don’t know how we are going to move forward with our lives without Quinn. Our lives are shattered beyond repair. We send our condolences to all the families who have been so tragically affected by this deranged gunman. No one should ever have to feel the pain we are feeling.
Please remember the victims and their families. Please remember Quinn.
Thank you. The Coopers."
Jason Johnson's family had this to say:
"Jason Johnson, 34, was proud to be a Christian. Jason recently enrolled in school at Umpqua Community College.

And Lucas Eibel's family issued the following statement:
"We have been trying to figure out how to tell everyone how amazing Lucas was, but that would take 18 years.
