Jamie Foxx’s Sister DeOndra Dixon Dies At The Age Of 36

Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx is mourning the death of his sister, DeOndra Dixon.

Foxx, best known for his role as ‘Ray Charles’ in the well-known bio-pic ‘Ray,’ delivered the devastating news through his verified Instagram account. Foxx posted a series of photos of himself with his beloved sister DeOndra Dixon, who passed away at the age of 36, and added a lengthy caption to honor her memory.

My heart is shattered into a million pieces… My beautiful loving sister Deondra has transitioned… I say transition because she will always be alive…”

The actor wrote that his sister was a bright light, and added he knew she was in heaven dancing with her wings on.

 “My pain is unbelievable I smile when I think of all of the great memories that she left me… My family and her friend from dancing in the blame it video to Dancing on the Grammys. And becoming The ambassador to @globaldownsyndrome… from sliding down my stairs with a grin as wide as the rio grand…”

Then Foxx addressed Dixon and said that she had left a hole in his heart; however, he would fit it with all of the memories she had given him. Even though the entire family was shattered, they would put the pieces back together with her love.

Also Global Down Syndrome Foundation, for which Foxx’s beloved sister was an ambassador, honored Dixon with a tribute published on its official website.

“Her parents, ​Annette and George Dixon, brother Jamie Foxx, sister Deidra Dixon, nieces Anelise and Corinne, dear friend Kim, and large extended family are beyond consolable, and we ask that you help us respect their privacy during this difficult time.”

The tribute continued:

“For Global, we have lost our talented, intelligent, feisty, beautiful, kind, loving, caring, pure and giving heart, DeOndra Dixon. Our Down syndrome community has lost a beacon of hope, a true leader, and role model whose aim was to always help others. She was a bright light in this world of ours.”
