Oh no, Gatsby is dead and he has no friends to mourn him. He made all his money illegally and he died without achieving his dream of Daisy.
The people I interviewed said that the American Dream means that through hard work, one can provide their family with a good life and a good future.
Gatsby's idealized American Dream was that if he waited long enough and worked hard enough for Daisy, he would eventually achieve his goal of being with Daisy.
Gatsby's corrupt American Dream is that he died without achieving his goal of being with Daisy. Also, he didn't achieve his money honestly (through hard work) - he cheated and engaged in illegal activities.
