Louisville Football is mourning the passing of former Card Dejmi Dumervil-Jean. Dumervil-Jean spent one season with the program in 2018, in which he played in 11 games and started 3 of them.
The FL native is the nephew of Cardinal Forever and legend Elvis Dumervil. While a player here, he wore the same number as his uncle, the number 58. It is truly sad and tragic as Dumervil-Jean was still so very young. By all public accounts, he was known as a very humble and nice young man.
CSZ would like to express our condolences to Dejmi’s family and friends.
