Editor’s note: As of press time yesterday, the vigil was scheduled to be held at Tillicum Park, which is what the PDN reported. This morning, however, we learned the location was changed. The vigil is now scheduled to take place at Forks High School at the stadium.

FORKS — A candlelight vigil to honor the life of 19-year-old Tristen LeeShawn James Pisani, who was shot and killed Sunday, has been set for Thursday evening.

The vigil will be held at 6 p.m. at Forks High School’s stadium, said Tie Eastman-Williams, Pisani’s aunt.

“Everyone is welcome,” she said.

Pisani was a standout athlete in Forks in both football and wrestling.

He was named first team to the all-Evergreen 1A football team as a running back in 2018. He was named an Athlete of the Week by the Peninsula Daily News in September 2018 after he rushed for 107 yards in a game against Port Angeles.

In wrestling, he finished fourth in the state in the 220-pound 1A division in February 2019 at the Mat Classic, helping lead Forks to a third-place team finish.
