CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Friends and family are trying to come to grips with the loss of 21-year old Brogan Dulle, the University of Cincinnati student found dead Monday night in a vacant house next to his Mount Auburn apartment.

There were tears of sadness Tuesday at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden where Dulle previously worked, but also tears to celebrate his life.
 
"Throughout this process it has been important for me to just be around and show my support, go out and lend a helping hand with the search and just be here for the overall support of the family," said Matt Tallon.
 
Many who helped in that search showed up to the vigil Tuesday night to pay their respects.
 
Dulle was an education student who loved to be around kids, and he was most recently a swimming coach. Thousands handed out flyers around not just campus, but all across the Tri-State.

His story became more widespread with the help of social media and even reached national news outlets.

UC President Santa Ono addressed the crowd Tuesday and said Dulle may be gone, but it's clear he left his mark on the entire community.

"Rest in peace Brogan, thanks for being part of the University of Cincinnati. Thanks for being a Bearcat of which we will be forever proud, may God bless you forever," said Ono.

A student-led vigil will be held Wednesday evening on campus to remember the life of a former classmate and friend. It begins at 9 p.m. on the Tangeman University Center steps and McMicken Commons.

Ono also reiterated the fact that there will be grief counselors on UC's campus throughout the week for anyone in need.
