Marquese Brown

THE STORY:

Marquese is an Oakland native who made his way to the Central Valley for college.  Brown is a proud alumnus of Fresno State's basketball team.  He graduated from Fresno State in 1995 with his degree in Journalism, and in his 20 years in the broadcasting industry has won two Emmy awards for his work at ABC30.

Brown is the first in his family to earn  a college degree and is passionate about encouraging youth to pursue higher education.  As a former broadcasting instructor for Clovis Unified, he often returns to different Valley High Schools to share his success story. Marquese starts his days before the sun comes up, either playing basketball or running.  He also stays grounded by attending his wife's yoga classes.

Marquese is the father of a beautiful young woman, Darian.  When he isn't busy, you'll find him at home watching "appointment TV" with his wife Christine and their two dogs, Sir Duke and Duchess Shenehneh.  

Marquese is excited to be a part of the Wine Women & Shoes event for the second year. He knows it will make a difference in the lives of the many children who benefit from the hard work of volunteers with Make-A-Wish Central California.

Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. The Central California chapter was founded in 1986, Make-A-Wish Central California chapter has granted over 2,000 wishes and serves eight counties: Fresno, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Kern, Kings, Tulare and Inyo. We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
