Jamie Mcpoyle Death – Jamie Mcpoyle, the beloved Connellsville Area High School science teacher and a dedicated community volunteer has passed away. Jamie Mcpoyle was announced dead this past Saturday. He died after his battle with cancer, surrounded by his family. Jamie just had a bundle of energy.

CAHS Student Council released a statement regarding the passing of one of their beloved teacher, Jamie Mcpoyle:
“CAHS lost a wonderful teacher and mentor yesterday. Mr McPoyle was extremely supportive of Student Council and everything we did.

What happened to Jamie Mcpoyle?
After months of lingering pain and consultation with 29 doctors, McPoyle received a chilling diagnosis: epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, known in medical circles as EHE. A rare cancer, it grows from the cells that make up the blood vessels, according to the National Cancer Institute. Facing right-leg amputation on February 24, 2022, McPoyle was upbeat.
Who was Jamie Mcpoyle?
McPoyle grew up in the neighbourhoods of Philadelphia. When he got married to Gwen, he moved to Connellsville. McPoyle’s wife, Gwen, works as a nurse at Penn Highlands Connellsville Hospital. Their four kids, Jamison, Gavin, Maggie, and Sully, are the most important people in his life. But, as his many friends will tell you, he was more than just someone who moved from one place to another, even if he never stopped loving Philadelphia sports.
Jamie went every year, and it was because of him that the teachers had hot chocolate. He is said to be the perfect family man. In 2001, McPoyle started working as a replacement teacher. Soon after, he was hired full-time. Before he moved to the high school, he taught at the old Junior High West.
McPoyle often spoke at board meetings during the time for public comment. He was not afraid to ask the board and management tough questions about the teachers union. Jamie did a lot more than just teach. He was the school leader. Jamie stood up for his teachers and cared deeply about what would be best for his classmates.
The family will release an obituary and funeral arrangements for Jamie Mcpoyle.
