Attorney Marques Eason Releases Memoir Chronicling His Battle With COVID-19


Attorney Marques Eason of The Marques Eason Law Group in Chicago, IL recently released I Ain't Done Living Yet: A Coronavirus Survivor Memoir after overcoming his battle with COVID-19. Marques concentrates his practice on real estate, residential and commercial real estate, probate, as well as family law and divorce. As a native of the Chicago area, he is passionate about helping clients in his local community. Marques has been recognized as an Elite Lawyer since 2020.


In his memoir, Marques shares his experience as a survivor of coronavirus. After suffering from symptoms including chest pain and difficulty breathing, he tested positive and was diagnosed in March of 2020. Marques was hospitalized for one month in the intensive care unit (ICU) at the University of Chicago Medical Center with severe health complications, including 15 days under sedation on a ventilator. He also underwent two blood transfusions, endured internal bleeding, pneumonia, and a stroke. Blood clots in his left leg and his right hand ultimately led to a condition that was found to have a poor prognosis for recovery and associated with fatalities in other COVID-19 patients. After treatment, the doctors determined that it was necessary to amputate the fingertips of his right thumb and index finger.

Marques credits his fighting spirit and faith in God that helped him beat the odds and recover from the deadly virus with a greater sense of purpose. He wanted to share his journey to provide encouragement for others facing adversity, and as a reminder that it is possible to make it through even the darkest times. He is also participating in a medical study related to his specific case in order for doctors to learn how to better treat similar patients.

I Ain't Done Living Yet is Marques' remarkable story of survival from COVID-19. Marques tells how his faith along with that of his close friends and family members was tested during this difficult and uncertain time. He believes God had a purpose for him, putting him through this and other challenges throughout his life, including financial stress, homelessness, and a seven-year struggle to (ultimately) pass the Illinois bar exam and become an accomplished attorney.

Available in hardback or paperback versions, I Ain't Done Living Yet: A Coronavirus Survivor Memoir can be purchased through and wherever books are sold, including Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Customers purchasing directly from will receive autographed copies of the book, personally signed by author Marques A. Eason, Esq.

“Never could I have imagined that I would experience so many life-threatening battles and still be alive today to tell my story. I pray that my story and my testimony, chronicling the day-to-day events of what I went through to overcome and survive COVID-19, encourages you to see that there is life after the virus, and as with anything, you can fall down, make missteps and mistakes, yet still rise again and truly thrive, better than ever. Your past has given you the strength and the wisdom you have today, so celebrate it. Don't let it haunt you,” Eason commented.
