Survivor mourns her boyfriend's death after he saved her life

Jansen Young survived the shooting thanks to her boyfriend.

He shielded her body with his, and in doing so, he was killed in the shooting.

"Even though he saved me and he gave me the opportunity to live, he would have done it for anyone that day," said Jansen. "You know, the nearest person sitting next to him, he would have been like, 'This person needs my help now.' That's just who he was, and everybody knew it. He went above and beyond to help everyone. He was an incredible person."

Jansen just moved to Colorado a few days ago to be with her boyfriend who was in the military.
