Former Holy Trinity High School footballer Jordan Foote is dead.
The young man in the prime of his life who had already lost a leg to cancer, and vowed to bounce back and one day return to his passion, but it was not to be, as he passed away this morning at the University Hospital of the West Indies.
He had been ailing over the last few months, struggling to breathe, feeling symptoms of weakness among other medical complications and this morning at approximately 10 he took his last breath after holding the hand of coach Devon Anderson.
The entire Holy Trinity High School has been plunged into mourning.
The 17 year old Foote was diagnosed with the cancer in his knee prior to the start of the 2015 ISSA/Flow Manning Cup and subsequently missed the entire season.
Foote’s coach at Holy Trinity gave his reflection on the life of the youngster. Foote was an integral part of the team’s success in 2014 where they made it to the final of the flow sup cup before losing to Jamaica College.
The Irie Fm sports department sends condolences to the family and friends of young Jordan Foote.
