He was born on March 22, 1989, in Syracuse, NY, son of James
Marquette and Julie Rutherford. From the time James was born
he had a difficult life. He was a fighter and overcame
everything God threw him for 27 years.
He enjoyed spending time with his friends at JRC, going out
to community events, eating ice cream, swimming and most of
all country music. JC had an infectious laugh that could
fill a room and bring a smile to everyone around him.
Today’s fight was the last and he is in a beautiful place
now. RIP my little man.
Among his survivors are his mother and stepfather, Julie L.
and James L. Eaton, Watertown; a sister and brother-in-law,
Kayla and Shadoe McGee, Colorado Springs, CO; his father,
James Marquette, Watertown; paternal grandmother, Barbara
Marquette, Watertown; paternal step grandfather, Lyle Eaton,
Watertown; several aunts, uncles and cousins.
