Markese Antonio Duane Dortch was born on June 30th, 2005. At 15 years old he loved his family dearly and was the ultimate loving role model to his younger siblings.
A student of Benton Harbor high school, he excelled in his work and was a student of the month in his sophomore class for the month of October. He was loved by all and very respectful to his elders. He aspired to create and would have loved to develop a video game that would teach his peers technology and rescue them from boredom.
Markese leaves behind to cherish his everlasting loving memory, his father Mark Hackney, loving grandparents Tommie Dortch and Shereatha Williams, brother Napoleon Smith Jr, Marquis Hackney, sister Zoriah Hackney and a host of uncles, aunts, and cousins.
