Jamie Foxx Mourns Death Of Longtime Friend And Costar Keith Jefferson At 53


Jamie Foxx is thinking back on his life on the passing of his longtime friend and co-star Keith Jefferson.

On October 5, the “Django Unchained” actor sent a touching tribute on social media informing her followers of Jefferson’s passing. Jefferson was 53 years old and had roles in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and “The Hateful Eight.”

Everything hurts right now,” Foxx wrote on Instagram. “Having a hard time looking through these pictures, reliving the memories of us having a great time. Going to miss you man, gonna miss you.”

Giving followers a glimpse into their friendship, the 55-year-old continued, “Since we met back in college, you have been an incredible soul. God rest, NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE TO SEE THE WORDS ABOUT MY FRIEND. RIP @keith.jefferson.”

In addition to the heartfelt statement, Foxx posted a photo of himself and Jefferson shaking hands in front of a private plane.

The “Beat Shazam” host acknowledged how much the defeat “hurts” in a separate post.

“Keith, you’ve been nothing but absolute grace your whole life. Your heart is pure, your love is immeasurable, you were an amazing soul,” Foxx said. “We will all miss you dearly. It’s gonna take a long time for this to heal. Goodbye, my friend. I love you.”

Although the cause of death has not been made public, Jefferson acknowledged on social media in August that he had cancer.

“Every now and then God will give you a challenge and leave it up to you to fix it,” he posted on Instagram alongside a photo of himself in the hospital. “When I was first diagnosed with cancer I had to stop, pause, and didn’t want to share with anyone. Not my family nor extended family. Today I’m finally at a place to share because my faith is getting stronger. I have a loving family and the best friends in the entire world.”

A few weeks later, Jefferson posted a picture of Foxx and himself with a friend and explained how they had helped him.

“When I say the admiration I have for my friends is unmatched,” Jefferson noted Aug. 30. “My heart will never lie. Rodney Mason who has been a beam of light thru my dark times. Thank you brother. J Foxx…you already know. For you to take the time to spend with me everyday, every hour tells me everything I already know. You are my family and I wouldn’t have it no other way. Luv you bro. I will pull thru because my faith is strong and with God on my side I won’t worry.”

According to his personal website, Jefferson worked as an actor, producer, voiceover artist, and acting coach. According to his IMDb, he had collaborated with Foxx as far back as 1998.

Jefferson made two guest appearances on “The Jamie Foxx Show” and had an uncredited part in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” (2012). The actor most recently acted in Foxx’s latest movie “The Burial” as well as his 2022 Netflix film “Day Shift.”
