On June 16, 2020, Casey Satterlee passed away while exemplifying his all-time favorite superhero Batman, by protecting his children and rescuing his youngest son. Even in his final moments, Casey showed the depth of his love and protection for his family by telling his son that he loved them all. This was the true spirit of Casey Satterlee. He will be remembered as a caring man who had a passion for teaching and making an impact through education. He believed so strongly in the importance of education that he ran for office in order to improve education at the Oklahoma state level. He did not remain silent. He stood up for what he believed in and offered a voice to be heard, to strive for change, and to make a difference.
Casey was born in Oklahoma City on Feb. 15, 1978 to Philip (Phil) Satterlee, Jr. and Janice (Payton) Satterlee. He married his precious bride, Lisa, on July 8, 2006 in Norman, with Dan Barrick officiating. They were blessed in their marriage with two sons, Lewis on Jan. 15, 2009, and Ayden on June 11, 2012.
Growing up, he attended Edmond Public Schools graduating from Edmond North in 1997. He completed his bachelor’s in education from the University of Central Oklahoma in 2002 and began his teaching career in Broken Arrow, teaching 7th grade math. In 2008, Casey and Lisa moved to Edmond, where he taught upper math and science at Bishop John Carroll Cathedral School in Oklahoma City. He then taught 7th and 8th grade math at Capps Middle School, and later moved to high school math at Putnam City North High School. He was greatly loved by his students, their families, and his fellow colleagues.
