Jahneil Douglas was a University of Toledo football player who lost his life on Tuesday, July 7, 2020.  Douglas was a Toledo native who attended Start High School.  He was a defensive lineman for the Rockets and a loved member of the team.   

Head Football Coach Jason Candle said, “The Toledo Football family is heartbroken by the loss of Jahneil.  He was a hard-working young man who was loved by all his teammates and coaches.  Our sincerest condolences go out to Jahneil’s family and friends during these difficult times.  Jahneil will forever be a part of the Rocket Football family.”   

It wasn’t just his work ethic and dedication to the game that made Jahneil, or JD, as he was called by those who knew him, special.  Nicole Candle, Coach Candle’s wife, said of Jahneil, “JD’s smile was contagious, his hugs big, his conversation real and his future bright.”  

In his memory, the Jahneil Douglas Memorial Scholarship is being created.  This scholarship will be awarded to a former Rocket football player who plans to attend graduate school at UToledo or needs an additional semester to finish his degree.  Preference will be given to a student-athlete from the city of Toledo.  The recipient must have a GPA of 2.5 or better.

Please make a gift to help honor Jahneil’s memory and support football players in the future.
