Our team is walking in memory of Jace Malek.. Jace was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in January of 2015 just a week before he was set to sign a full ride scholarship to play football at the University of Idaho. After rounds of chemo and a Hemipelvectomy in July, while living his life and being involved with the Vandal football team, Jace was told that his cancer had moved to his lungs and that there was not much to do for him anymore. Jace and his girlfriend Libby got married 3 weeks later and they packed a lot of life into a short amount of time. Jace loved his family and got to experience his favorite things like hunting with all the people he loved by his side. Jace passed away peacefully February 28th, in Libby MT, his favorite place in the world.
Libby Malek had the pleasure of being Jace’s wife and biggest cheerleader through his battle.
