SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Friends of Anthony Womack, the teenager who died after jumping from Sunset Cliffs Wednesday, spent the morning joining a local car club to wash cars in National City, in exchange for funeral donations.

"He was just like a happy person," said Sweetwater High School student, Sarah Seineke. "He was always around school laughing. He was really good person to everybody...that's why everyone is so affected by it."

When members of Diego Style Car Club heard about Womack's tragic death, they knew they wanted to help.

The crew showed up to the Church of God of Prophecy on Epsilon Street and were set up to begin the $5 washes by 8 a.m. that would go until the afternoon.

"It's been hard the last couple of days," said Llamas, who's daughter was close friends with Womack and asked for the fundraiser.

"When your kid hurts, you know we hurt also," he said. "She came to us and she asked us if we could do something for her friend."

The community showed up, car after car stopped by the church leaving cash and comforting the teens who have lost someone who meant so much.

"I hope they remember his vibe as a person," said Seineke. "His personality, always."

Funeral arrangements will be announced at a later date.
