The sudden passing of former NFL linebacker Jessie Lemonier has sent shockwaves throughout the sports world. At just 25 years old, Lemonier’s death is the latest in a string of similar tragedies to affect young professional athletes. The former NFL linebacker died suddenly at 25 with no cause of death given.
Ex-NFL linebacker Jessie Lemonier has passed away at the age of 25. No explanation for his passing has been communicated by his relatives, the Detroit Lions (his last team), or the media.
Jessie Lemonier, who hailed from Liberty University, inked a contract with the San Diego Chargers after going unselected in the draft. As per ESPN, in 2021 he amassed 15 tackles and 1.5 sacks while suiting up for the Detroit Lions. However, he was let go by the Arizona Cardinals in the this past year’s training camp.
The passing of Jessie Lemonier is the latest tragedy to strike young professional athletes, who have either passed suddenly or suffered collapses. Although it is unknown if Lemonier received the COVID-19 vaccine, the NFL has resorted to using coercion to ensure that the majority of its players received the shot, boasting a current 95% player vaccination rate. However, a number of high-profile players, including Harrison Butker of the Kansas City Chiefs, Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, and Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings, have publicly opposed the shot.
Lemonier’s death occurred a day before his 26th birthday and shortly after Damar Hamlin, a player for the Buffalo Bills, suffered a cardiac arrest during a Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals. This event, which required CPR for nine minutes after his heart stopped beating, may be related to the vaccine.

Damar Hamlin’s apparent revival from a medically induced coma, along with his peculiar choice to conceal his entire face while present at a Buffalo Bills playoff game a few weeks ago, has elicited increasing speculation from fans and journalists on social media that the NFL may be concealing the reality that he is either still in a critical condition or has already passed away.
