Marques Reynolds

As a celebrated graduate of the University of North Florida, Marques Reynolds has over 11 years of experience working within the Duval County Public School system. It is no surprise that he is one of the most notable faces of education on the Northside of Jacksonville. Mr. Reynolds is well known for his years as an English Language Arts educator at William M. Raines high school. From the classroom to the soccer field, he has been a daily influence in urban education and continuously makes positive deposits in the lives of his students and athletes. His philanthropic attitude proceeds his humble, yet inspirational motives to instill integrity, diligence, and tenacity in each life he is granted the privilege of being a part of. In 2016, Mr. Reynolds launched an online blog entitled, Reynolds The Educator, which is a resource for educational and political information as well as dialogue.

However, it does not stop there. Marques is also an established entertainer. He is the resident Dj at Mark’s located in downtown Jacksonville, has had mixes featured on 93.3 The Beat Jamz, and has performed at various venues from Tallahassee to Miami. We look forward to several promising educational and
entertainment projects from Marques Reynolds in the near future. It is inevitable that Mr. Reynolds will continue to make a major impact on the city of Jacksonville.
