Wife of Dallas Cowboy great Jay Novacek, LeAnne found dead

February 5, 2010

Death is in the air.

The clock starts at birth....

I smell it and feel it’s grip tighten around all of us.

This is the reason that you have to live life to the fullest.  Seize the moment. Carpe Diem

Suicide is never the way to go, unless it is about to be your time.  Then ride the Heroin Highway home…it’s fun and easy.  Although it requires a needle, which I detest….
This saddens me, as Jay was the key to a bunch of really good Cowboy offenses in the 90’s.  Very reliable.  Hopefully, that will be a quality that people will assign to me when my number comes up.  My number is…who really knows?  All I know is that I am not going to call it myself.  That will be someone else who does that.

Jason Witten, this is your gold standard to reach. Dallas Clark? This is what and who should inspire you


The wife of former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jay Novacek died Monday at her mother’s home from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Burleson police Commander Doug Sandifer said. LeAnne Novacek, 45, was found dead at 9:05 a.m., according to Linda Anderson, spokesperson for the Tarrant County coroner’s office. At 8:37 a.m., Burleson police and fire departments responded to “a report of a medical emergency, possible suicide” at a residence in Burleson, according to police department spokesperson Sally Ellertson. The body was found in the bedroom of the residence, according to the police report. The Tarrant County coroner’s office said Tuesday that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, but the police investigation is still pending. The Novaceks, who have a daughter, live in Joshua. Jay Novacek, 47, played six seasons for the Cowboys from 1990 to 1996. The five-time Pro Bowler, who ranks ninth in team history with 3,576 career receiving yards on 339 receptions, was a member of teams that won three Super Bowls in four seasons. He was a sixth-round draft choice out of Wyoming in 1985 by the St. Louis Cardinals. After a back injury forced him to miss the 1996 season, Novacek retired in 1997. He and LeAnne continued to live in the area after his retirement, and Novacek remained involved with team. He signed autographs at Cowboys Stadium earlier this season. Novacek was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008.

Bad things happen to good people.  That is a way of life.  We all have to find a way to get through it…

    I can’t help but wonder what really brought her to this , such a tragic end ! For me however, as I’ve done a lot of volunteer work with returning vets from Afghanistan and Iraq. And then see the piss poor aid they get from the VA here. I can well understand why the suicide rate is at an alltime high amongst military personnel here. It’s so fu_ked up and the government fails to address this most acute and urgent of needs.

    I guess they can only pander to certain issues as and when they see fit. Like during an election cycle more often than not . Then they (Senators and House Reps) become like flies around sh_t as they pander for your votes !
