I remember you from Highlands Elementary school on field days. You and Lorenzo Rivers we're the two to beat. Always a smile. God Bless you and your family. Markus you left your mark on the people you came in contact with and left treasured memories. Tiel, December 11, 2020 It was a pleasure to know Markus when he was a member and deacon at Hickory Knoll Church of Christ. He was so humble and always an inspiration in the way he prioritized his Christianity with his schedule as an NFL coach. I enjoyed having both Jairus and Tabitha as students in the Cradle Roll Bible class. May God grant peace and comfort to his family with the knowledge that he is resting in the arms of God. Kay Davis, December 10, 2020 Markus was a great man. He always had a great smile. To his family please be strong and let God get you through these rough times. RIP Homie and please look after all of us. Billy Owens.
Billy Owens and family, December 10, 2020 Great Coach and family man who will be missed. Eugene Harbin, December 8, 2020 God bless you all . R.I.H COUSIN MARCUS Cassie Guillaume, December 8, 2020 My wife and I met Markus and his wife Patricia, Jaruis and Tabitha while we lived in Syracuse, NY between 1996-1999 while attending Syracuse Church of Christ. For those that knew Markus i'm sure that they would agree that he was more than just a Godly man, he was a man of character, that always exhibit humbleness. I recall when Markus informed me that he got the position with the New Orlean Saints and that he was moving to the Big Easy. What amazed me is that Markus was cool as the other side of the pillow with no expression and did not exhibit excitement. Now if that was me i would be jumping all over the place screaming about it, but that just showed me the type of person he was....humble. In 1999 my family and I moved to Houston, TX and when Markus found out he invited my family and i to stay with them as we travel to Houston, TX from Syracuse, NY and of course we did and while we were staying at his place with his family he still exhibited that humbleness that i got to witness abut him. Markus did not appear to be caught up in all the fan-fare that some others athletes may have and in fact he had 3 huge garbage bags filled with game balls that he received from playing with the Chicago Bears in the garage and i thought to myself....if this were me these balls would be in a trophy case in my trophy room for everyone to see. But that wasn't Markus style, he was just a down to earth guy who didn't think he was any better than the rest of him. Markus my Godly brother you are in a much better place now and know that you’ll never be forgotten. My God continue to bless your family. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted" Matthew 5:4 "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away" Revelation 21:4 "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us" Romans 8:18 "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit" Psalm 34:18 Love, Anthony & Maureen Palmer

firstname.lastname@example.org, December 2, 2020 I am so sad when I heard of Markus’ passing. Markus was one of the true great people I’ve met in the NFL. He was such a kind, friendly, God loving man. He was always such a positive presence. He brought out the best in everyone he was around. He had such a great sense of people, great awareness of others. He was truly a great man. He will be definitely missed by all of us who had the privilege to know him. Judd Garrett, December 2, 2020
