Our Board


Marcus Palmer

Marcus Palmer received his Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Arizona State University and a Certificate of Completion in Organizational Leadership from Rio Salado College. He brings to the foundation three decades of experience in various customer service, sales, leadership and logistics positions. 

Marcus has served his community through a Board of Directors role with the Mesa Eastern Pop Warner organization for 12 years. He has held various other youth sports coaching positions for well over 20 years and is proud to continue to mentor these young athletes. 

Marcus enjoys playing golf and basketball, and spending time with his five children and his grandchildren.

With almost two decades of friendship with the Bones family, Jamie’s death prompted Marcus to step up as protective big brother to Allison and chosen uncle to Travis. Knowing he would never again hear Travis’ infectious giggle or participate in their cool handshake, Marcus is dedicated to preserving Travis’ legacy and preventing childhood death from Isolated Congenital Asplenia.
