Services for Demarcus Cokley will take place next Wednesday.

Demarcus Cokley's mom Nadine just let me know that the service for Demarcus will take place next Wednesday, March 24 at Christ Temple Church Evanston, 1711 Simpson Street.

Viewing will be from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and the service is at noon.

"People need to stop not telling what they see," Nadine told me, "and stand up for these kids because if we don't, no one else will."

This photo is of Nadine and Demarcus in June 2020. Demarcus posted it saying, "Happy Fathers Day this won’t make sense to y’all but if you know her you know the meaning she did it all."

Please donate to the GoFundMe for Demarcus' family.

Demarcus and Jose Sanchez Guerrero were shot and killed in Evanston last week.


Demarcus is the second of Nadine's sons to be killed by gun violence in Evanston.

Jose is the third son of Debbie Caluya to be killed by gun violence in Evanston.

Kyle Wilson was shot in the stomach and leg, and is recovering.
