Marquis Jones    

Fashion Model, Motivational Speaker, Entertainer and Founder of Lost in the System

Marquis Jones was from a broken family. He did not know his father and at the age of five, he was taken from his mother and put into foster care. Marquis spent his childhood years in three group homes and four foster homes. Because he knows how it feels to be alone and helpless, he wants to help those young ones who are facing the same struggle as he did.

Marquis offers a group home specifically made for homeless children, adolescent boys, and young adults who need guidance and direction in their lives. He understands how difficult life can get for many kids, and it is his mission to be there for them and teach them how to make good choices.

With the help of Child Protective Services and the donations of many kindhearted individuals, Lost in the System can give kids a bright future.

Marquis was also on America’s Next Top Model in 2014 and has walked for Gucci during fashion week. Marquis shot with the cast of the hit TV show Empire for its fourth season.
