I taught Marquise when he was in 9th grade. I loved having him in my class. I cried when he graduated because I knew how hard he worked to get there. I don't know anyone who met him who didn't love him. I was SO proud of the man he had become. I am not surprised to read of the awards and commendations he received during his time in the military. My heart breaks that he wpn't get to live the life he worked so hard for and deserved. What an amazing hero our country has gained! Condolences to his family - I will never forget him!
