Marquise Jackson Obituary

A precious one from us is gone. A voice we love is still. A place is vacant in our hearts which can never be filled. You bid no one a last farewell. not even a "Good-bye." You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why.
Marquise Antwone Jackson was born the oldest of five children to Bishop Melvin
D. Jackson and Carol Richard on November 8, 1982. He was taught the word and ways of God and baptized at an early age by his father at Spring Bluff Missionary Baptist Church.
He enjoyed gathering with family and friends where his presence filled the room with love, laughter, and often times, his rap lyrics.
He departed this life for eternity with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Tuesday, July 25, 2023 at Bunkie General Hospital.
Marquise's memories are being cherished by: his father, Bishop Melvin D.
(Shirley) Jackson of Ville Platte, LA, mother, Carol Richard (Peter Ray) of Morrow, LA; five children, T'andre Mundy, Marquise Mundy, Kelise Jackson, Kandis Jackson all of Bunkie, LA and Amauri Jackson of Ville Platte, LA; two brothers, Damien Jackson and Melvin "MJ" Jackson II both of Morrow, LA; three sisters, Marquisha Stevens (Juwan) of Washington, LA, Ashley Walker (Joshua) of Ville Platte, LA, and LaTochia Childs (Adrian) of Opelousas, LA; paternal grandparents, Lena Simmons of Bunkie, LA and David West of Compton, CA; a special companion, Victoria Gougisha of Ville Platte, LA; Godparents, Leroy and Mary Jane Randall, Sr.; and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and other relatives and friends.
