Sen’Derrick Marks the Jaguars defensive tackle lost a friend and a prom date a few days ago when Khameyea Jennings lost her fight to cancer. Marks talked to the media about his friend and her presence on him.
“I was at the hospital coming to see her when she died,” Marks said. “It was very sad, but her and her family had a strong relationship with God. They were thankful for the time they had with Khameyea. I wanted them to know I was ready to help with anything they needed. I just tried to be some kind of comfort.”
Marks was very grateful that Jennings accepted him into her life at such a difficult stage in her life.
“It puts things in perspective,” Marks said. “What we do is tough, but it’s entertainment. That’s all it is. Pure entertainment. There’s a whole world going on outside that a lot of people in this business don’t know about. They’re so stuck in this business, because it gives you so many perks. So much fame and glorifies you so much. What the hell are we glorified for? Look at her. She has to be strong. There are so many people going through that.”
