LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A hero's sendoff as hundreds said a final farewell to a local teen. 

Funeral services were held Saturday for 17-year-old Jesse Schott. He died Monday after his third bout with brain cancer. 

Ladder trucks draped a large flag as a long procession of mourners made their way to Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Louisville. 

Officers saluted as the teen's flag-draped casket passed. 

Friends and family say Schott was the heart and soul of North Bullitt High School's Junior ROTC program.
