Marques Rodriguez was a beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend who tragically died in a car accident June 11, 2023 at the age of 16. Marques was funny, caring, kind and had the most beautiful smile who can light up a room. Anytime you had a bad day, marques would be the only person that will take his time to cheer you up. He passed away the summer after his sophomore year at First Coast High School.
Marques loved basketball but he had a passion for singing. He loved being part of his Highschool Chorus Family and just a few weeks before he died, he won the "Most Improved Award." He was the "Heart of the chorus Family." per his chorus teacher
To know Marques, was to love him! He touched and impacted so many lives. He was the kind of person you will never forget.
This fundraiser will go to raising money for the Marques D. Rodriguez Memorial Scholarship.
Our mission for this scholarship is to award a deserving student each year who has the same passion and love for singing, music, art/theatre the way he did.
Through this scholarship, Marques' name will live on and his legacy will continue to help others.
