This is what the keyword for regeneration means:

Regenerate describes a replacement effect for destruction, is generally written as "Cost: Regenerate (this permanent)", and is an ability only held by permanents. When the ability is activated, a "regeneration shield" is set up on the permanent. The next time that permanent would be destroyed, instead (if applicable) all damage is removed from it, it is removed from combat, it is tapped, and a regeneration shield is removed from it. Otherwise, the regeneration shield remains until the end of the turn. This ability is generally found on creatures, though any permanent can be regenerated."

Basically if you let DoJ resolve, the creatures die during the resolution of DoJ. Because of that you don't have an opportunity to activate any abilities anymore. In order for your creature to survive DoJ, you have to give it regeneration shield before DoJ resolves.

So if you cast DoJ and let it resolve, your angelic overseer will survive. If you want to save FoS instead you would have to sacrifice a human before DoJ resolves which would then make it so your Overseer dies.
So in this case, if you only control 1 human, you can't save both your Angelic Overseer and FoS.
