Marion’s death was announced on the first of December, one year after being diagnosed with ischemic stroke. After treatment, he was able to walk with some assistance, and his wife even shared updates on his progress in May.

The late Marion was an attorney who graduated from the University of Michigan, the George Washington School of Law, and the NYU School of Law. His wife and their five-year-old son survive him.
