NBA star Dwyane Wade visits Marjory Stoneman Douglas High

Heat's Dwyane Wade makes surprise visit to Stoneman Douglas

Dwyane Wade surprised the students at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday. When he learned that Joaquin Oliver, one of 17 people killed in the shooting, was buried in a Wade Heat jersey, the National Basketball Association star dedicated the rest of the season to the teen.

Students flocked to the Heat star, who came to the high school to pay his respects after 17 students were shot and killed on February 14.

"I'm thankful they came to the game", Wade told the Sun Sentinel newspaper.


The Stoneman Douglas students have frequently taken to social media in the last several weeks, to promote their March for Our Lives event on March 24, to confront conservative detractors and the NRA, and to support each other. I'm looking forward to being more involved in the change that they WILL create.

"As someone out here in the public eye I'm proud to say I'm from this state because of you guys and because of the future of this world". "They understand the power of their voices for the ones that often go unheard!"

Dwyane Wade was emotional upon learning a Parkland shooting victim was buried in his jersey.


Student Diego Pfeiffer posted a picture of Wade being escorted through the school and thanked Wade "for casually dropping by our school and causing a stampede in the cafeteria. Joaquin Oliver may you Rest In Peace and i dedicate my return and the rest of this Miami Heat season to you", Wade tweeted after the game. "An interesting lunch to be sure, thank you for your support!"

On Saturday, Wade met with the Oliver family and gave them a pair of specially made shoes that included the name of the school and Joaquin's name.
