Derrick Rump, was among those killed in the Club Q shooting in Colorado Springs, his sister Julia Kissling confirmed to CNN. 

Rump worked as a bartender at the club along with Daniel Aston, who was also killed during Saturday night’s shooting. 

“They were in so many ways polar opposites, but worked so well together. They were just amazing and every bar should have a Daniel and a Derrick,” Tiara Kelley, who performed at the club the night before the incident, told CNN.  

When speaking about her brother, Kissling told CNN affiliate WFMZ that her brother “found a community of people that he loved really much, and he felt that he could shine there, and he did.”

“He made a difference in so many people’s lives, and that’s where he wanted to be,” Kissling said. 

“It’s just surreal, still,” Michael Kissling said. “They’re still processing situation of what happened. They’re still mourning the loss of their, her other son and her other brother a couple of months ago. And it’s just, hate’s never acceptable. It doesn’t matter what you think in life, it’s just, hate is never the way to go. And I just, we send prayers to all the families involved.”

Rump was a native of Berks County, Pennsylvania and graduated from Kutztown Area High School in 2002, according to his sister.
