A high school student has raised nearly $100,000 for the Indiana middle school teacher who tackled a gunman last week. 

The Indianapolis Star reported Wednesday that Jackson Ramey started a GoFundMe account for Jason Seaman, the seventh grade science teacher at Noblesville West Middle School.

Seaman has been praised as a hero after he was shot three times on Friday morning while swatting the gun away and tackling a student who opened fire in his classroom.

"I was like, 'I feel so helpless right now I need to do something to help him out,'" Ramey said of making the fundraising page.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the page for Seaman’s medical bills had reached more than $97,100.

Ramey, now a high school student, has a little sister who attends Noblesville West, according to the Star.

"These are just seventh graders," Ramey told the newspaper. "If the student got past him ... He was the first and last line of defense. If he were to get past him who knows what could have happened."

Seaman, released from the hospital on Saturday, got to meet Ramey on Monday.

"I can't really fathom how someone I have not personally met would do such an act of kindness," Seaman said during a press conference, according to the Star. "And how the Noblesville community has been so generous in their response to it."

Ramey told the newspaper that he just wanted to help.

"It was to pay back a deed that can't be repaid," he said. "Because what he did cannot be repaid."

The GoFundMe account for 13-year-old student Ella Whistler, who was critically injured during the shooting, has raised more than $54,000.

Seaman praised Whistler for her bravery during a press conference earlier this week. 

“I can’t say enough of how proud I am of Ella and how proud we all should be,” Seaman said. “Her courage and strength as such a young age is nothing short of remarkable.”

The two were injured by a student who reportedly asked to be excused from class but later returned with two handguns, Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt said, according to The Indianapolis Star.

The boy was apprehended but has not been identified.
