Last week, hundreds of students serenaded their beloved teacher outside his home to show their support during his fight with cancer.

"It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in my entire life," said Nate Morrow, headmaster at the school where Ellis works. "He is one of the kindest and intentionally loving people I've ever met in my life. I think that's what really characterizes him. He's always pursuing other people in wanting to get to know them and love them."
