Teenager who died during hike near Arcadia only a day away from graduation

A high school student who died during a hike near Arcadia was just a day away from graduation according to his family. 

Jeremy Saint Julian, who played football at La Serna High School in Whittier, was hiking with some friends near the Chantry Flat area when he fell off a cliff on Tuesday. 

Teammates honored Saint Julian by wearing his jersey number, 54, as well as leaving Saint Julian's jersey on his empty seat for the graduation ceremony on Wednesday night. 

La Serna High held a moment of silence and released balloons in his memory during the ceremony last night.
