José Gildeixon Clemente de Paiva (3 September 1987 – 28 November 2016), commonly known as Gil, was a Brazilian footballer who last played for Chapecoense as a defensive midfielder.

Club career

Born in Nova Cruz, Rio Grande do Norte, Gil started his career at Santa Cruz-RN. In 2005 he joined Mogi Mirim after impressing on a trial,[1] and subsequently became an undisputed starter for the side. He then had spells at Guaratinguetá and Série A club Vitória in 2009, making his division debut for the latter on 16 July in a 1–1 away draw against Náutico.[2]

Released by Vitória in December 2009, Gil signed for Santo André in Série B.[3] Sparingly used by the club during the season, he moved to fellow second tier club Ponte Preta.[4]

In April 2011, after impressing in the year's Campeonato Paulista, Gil agreed to a contract with Coritiba,[5] but was only registered in June.[6] He made his debut for the club on 1 July, replacing Tcheco in a 3–1 home victory against Ceará.[7]

After several campaigns as a starter, Gil was loaned to fellow top tier side Chapecoense on 3 January 2015.[8] He scored his first goal in the category on 30 May, but in a 1–3 loss at former club Ponte Preta.

Gil rescinded his contract with Coxa in December 2015, and signed for Chape permanently.


On 28 November 2016, whilst at the service of Chapecoense, Gil was among the fatalities of the LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 accident in the Colombian village of Cerro Gordo, La Unión, Antioquia.[9]
