Mark was one of the most amazing men I have ever met. A caring and dedicated educator, a professional and hardworking colleague, and quite simply one of the most selfless human beings I have ever had the privilege to know. May he rest in peace.

His life was filled to supporting others, being involved in all of the small behind the scenes ways that make events happen, programs succeed, changes occur in the lives of every individual he came into contact with. His loss will be felt by so many people but each of us need to honor him by continuing to make his legacy one of acting in the same way he did; bringing hope and change into the world one person at a time. My loss leaves a huge hole in my life and my heart goes out to his mother, sisters, partner and friends.
