Obituary for Jaleel iman Foye II

Jaleel Iman Foy", II, 17, of Altus, passed away suddenly at Jackson County Memorial Hospital in Altus.

Jaleel was born February 26, 1995, in Altus, to Jaleel and Carolyn Sue (Nichols) Foy". He had lived all his life in Altus and was a Senior at Altus High School. He loved sports, including basketball, football, and track. He also refereed the basketball City of Altus League. He adored his younger siblings and loved teaching them how to play basketball and football. Jaleel loved to fish and listen to all kinds of music.

Jaleel was very well liked by all who knew him. A tribute in the Bulldog Collar Newspaper, written by Kadi Henry, Michelle Bonewitz, and Allie Cox, was a wonderful commentary on his life. Students and teachers alike respected his athleticism and positive attitude. Jaleel's smile was infectious, and he had such a sweet, gentle spirit. He was able to communicate and teach kids with all backgrounds and skill levels. He never judged others and was good at lifting up the spirits of anyone who was feeling down. He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
