Faisal and his Grandmother Alice Roy, July 15, 2012
at the DtWT Orientation Breakfast

We are deeply saddened to hear of the tragic passing of former DtWT National Ambassador, Faisal Puckett, Jr.

Faisal represented New Orleans in 2012; during his visit to Washington, D.C, he met with former Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu and shared his views on the causes of and solutions to youth violence in his community. Tragically, Faisal and a friend fell victim to the very same problem he made a personal pledge to help prevent and reduce.

Our deepest condolences are with Faisal’s family and friends during this difficult time.

Details of the funeral arrangements can be found here.

"I'm going to live, write, and DtWT."
