A fundraiser is held for a Jacksonville firefighter who died last month.
On Saturday at The Landing, friends gathered to help raise money for Jason Bishop's family.
The Fire and Iron Motorcycle Club put the event together, which included vendors, raffles, and a silent auction.
"It's the right thing to do, to rally the troops and help give some type of stable financial foundation for the family," said Jason Kerr.
Bishop fell to his death while cutting down a tree while working an off-duty job with his father.
"He didn't like to be in the limelight. He was one of those quiet, behind the scenes guys where I'm sure if this had happened to someone else, Jason would have spearheaded this concert himself," said Kerr.
Bishop, 39, became a firefighter for the city of Jacksonville 10 years ago after serving as a U.S. Marine. He leaves behind a wife, two daughters and an infant son.
His wife Shannon said she remembered going to orientation with Jason, and being told that if something happened to her husband, the other firefighters would take care of their families.
"The hardest part is not having my best friend anymore," she said.
A picture of Jason hangs in a locket around her neck.
"It's hard to believe it's already been over a month. It seems like it was this morning that he told me bye and that he would be home later so I can't believe the time has passed by," said Shannon Bishop. "I just feel that he's still with us and this is what he'd want us to do is so it's just to celebrate him, honor him, so I have to stay strong, I have to raise our three kids so I would do anything for them."
