Anderson Co. teen died; Best friend creates t-shirt design

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – It’s been less than a week since Lawrenceburg teenager, Jill Hurst died.

She was in a car crash and about a week later she was taken off of life support and donated her organs.

Now, her hometown is honoring her with the color pink.

Ryan Weber says he’s been best friends with Jill Hurst since they were 7th graders. He heard about he crash and says he was heartbroken.

“She was the nicest girl I ever met and she was really supportive,” said Ryan Weber, Best Friend.

He decided to honor her with a t-shirt design. He went to Splatter Inc. in Lawrenceburg to print a few t-shirts for him and his friends. The owner called him and asked if they could make more.

Weber agreed to do it.

Every shirt is pink because that’s Jill’s favorite color. He put two dinosaurs on the shirt because he says he used to give her drawings of dinosaurs. He also added a puzzle pice on the corner because he has autism.

“She used to like it when I drew pictures of dinosaurs,” said Weber.

Splatter Inc has printed hundreds of t-shirts and expects to get into the thousands.

All of the proceeds from shirt sales will go to the family and another business is doing it too.

Nats in Lawrenceburg created their own shirts with #JillSharedLife on the front. It also includes a ribbon representing organ donation and her initials.

The community wore the t-shirts to last weekend’s football for a “pink out”.
