DFW Elite's Jackson dies of heart attack

Duncanville's Marques Jackson, who built one of the nation's most influential girls' basketball club programs, died Sunday morning at age 46 of a heart attack.

Jackson's DFW Elite program has churned out a parade of women's basketball stars, including his own daughter, Tiffany, who plays for the WNBA's New York Liberty and was an All-American at Texas. DFW Elite alumni also include Brittney Griner, the NCAA tournament star at Baylor, and Brittainey Raven, a senior at Texas, among others. The program has plenty of future stars, including Odyssey Sims, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) high-school player of the year and Baylor signee.
