Family members, who set up the campaign page, have identified the man as Jonathan Seidel.

“Jonathan leaves behind his loving wife Randa Seidel and his beautiful 2 month old daughter Hazel. He also leaves behind 3 fur babies,” the organizer of the online fundraiser, Jennifer Kurucz, said.

Funds raised will go towards helping Seidel’s family and funeral expenses.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the page has raised $5,000 of its $25,000 goal.
