Blake Bortles’ foundation gives meals to first responders


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles and his foundation provided meals on Monday to first responders who were working at the Jacksonville Landing, the site of a mass shooting during a Madden NFL 19 tournament.

The Blake Bortles Foundation partnered with Mambos Cuban CafĂ© to offer meals for first responders on first and second shifts. Bortles also included a note of thanks to the police, firefighters and everyone else who assisted the victims after Sunday’s shooting.

“Thank you for everything that you do!” the note read. “Your service today and every day is greatly appreciated!”

Two people were killed and 11 others wounded during the shooting at Chicago Pizza restaurant. Jacksonville police identified the victims as 22-year-old Elijah Clayton of Woodland Hills, California, and 28-year-old Taylor Robertson of Giles, West Virginia, both of whom were competing in the tournament.

Police say 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore shot Clayton and Giles before taking his own life.
