Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott’s Brother Is Dead at 31 Years Old


As if the world needed sadder news, now comes word that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is mourning the loss of his brother.

Jace Prescott was just 31 years old.

“We are so saddened that Dak has lost his brother,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones added in a statement. “We want him to help him get through this time. Whatever we can do to help him get through this tough time. When you’re young — and Dak is young — death is really hard to understand to think about or live with. I have a particular sensitivity to players when they have a tragedy.”

A cause of Jace’s death has yet to be released, and it has yet to be seen if the continuing spread of coronavirus had any affect on his health.

Jace himself lived a life of football, playing during his college days at Northwestern State University in Louisiana. And yes, the two brothers mourned together back in 2013, when their mother Peggy Prescott died of colon cancer.

We send our condolences to all those who mourn Jace’s death.
