Justice for Glenn Jr.

On Monday, December 6, Glenn Foster Jr. tragically lost his life in the custody of law enforcement in Pickens County, Alabama.

Glenn Jr. is a beloved husband and father of four beautiful girls. He is a son. A brother. A cousin. A businessman. A servant leader. A friend. A HUMAN BEING.

Glenn Foster, Jr. is synonymous with success.

After a productive career playing in the National Football League for the New Orleans Saints, Glenn Jr. went on to live and work in his greatest potential, building successful business imprints in New Orleans and Chicago.

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, he graduated from Mount Carmel High School. He played college football at the University of Illinois before signing with the New Orleans Saints as a defensive end.

Since retiring from the NFL, Glenn used his platform to create a measurable impact for young men, women, and children through his advocacy for mental health, equity in underrepresented communities across the country, and promotion of the arts.

We all miss Glenn Jr. and his light and the joy he shared with us and so many others.


The Foster family has retained renowned civil rights Attorney Ben Crump of Ben Crump Law, co-counsel Diandra “Fu” Debrosse Zimmermann and Robert F. “Bobby” DiCello of DiCello Levitt Gutzler, and a collective of professionals to assist us in their pursuit of justice for Glenn Jr.

No family should have to experience what they are going through, and they will stop at nothing to uncover the truth about what happened to him.

Lifting our voices will amplify his legacy and anchor his truth.
