When I first met you we were at Freshman Football practice. I will never forget the time as we were jogging around the practice field and I became a little fatigued and fainting from the heat, you grabbed me and helped me. That day we became warriors together in the game we loved to play. You became a football brother and I will never forget you for that. I hope you are with God, and are resting in peace. My deepest condolence to alll your family and friends who loved you so much.

Mark and I were graduates of Mt. St. Michael's Academy's Class of 1983. By mere coincidence, we ended up as roommates during our class trip to Montreal/Quebec City in 1980. Mark was the funniest kid in our shared hotel suite during that trip. During that entire trip to Canada, he simply refused to go to sleep--keeping me, Mike Maldonando, and Jose Mirabal laughing all night until the break of dawn!! That was Mark's special gift: making people laugh. On a more solemn note, I want to express my sincerest condolences to the Mallach family and to let you know how sad I am for your loss. Your family raised a wonderful human being who lived each day with a dynamic love for others. Mark will be missed forever.

I am sorry for your loss. I only found out this week of Mark's passing. I first met him when I was assigned to the JTTF and we remained in touch off and on over the years. I last heard from him in November and I still cannot believe it. He will be missed. Gary - Federal Air Marshal Service

I am so sorry for you loss. Mark as many of us who came in contact with him at Fort Jackson knew him to be so helpful to others and full of life. Words cannot describe how I feel now. Mark was a mentor and a friend. I thank God for the time that I got to witness it.

I was privileged to work with Mark at Fort Jackson. He was the sweetest, most thoughtful and considerate person to all people. A highlight was his happiness was when he met and married Myrtie. His joy was contagious. All friends and family now have a hole in our hearts at the loss of this beautiful person. He had a wonderful laugh, smiling eyes, and thoroughly LOVED learning to be SOUTHERN! I’m confident God holds Mark in His healing hands and he is perfect and whole.

#42 Jerry Mallach 2018-03-06 07:37
This is a terrible loss for all that knew him. We spent lots of time together as kids thanks to our parents. As life went on and we began our careers, we ended up in different parts of the country and didn't stay in touch. Thankfully we reconnected a few years ago. I am grateful that we finally got together this past July. I still can't believe this. Rest in peace cousin. Love, Jerry

#25 Brandon Jenks 2018-03-05 10:06
It is with a very heavy heart that I write these words. My most sincere condolences are with the entire Mallach Family. May you all know that you are in my family's thoughts and prayers. May you also somehow find peace during these very difficult and confusing times. Mark meant the world to me and my family, as he was directly responsible for my twenty-two years of service in the United States Army. Mark was the active duty Army Recruiter that enlisted me in the Infantry and changed my life forever. I looked up to Mark in many ways and found inspiration in the positive and energetic ways that he lived life. Even when times seemed dismal, Mark found the good in it all and consistently persevered. Mark and I exchanged text messages often during the college football season, cheering on our beloved Alabama Crimson Tide with words of affirmation and passion for the love of the game. Although it is very painful to lose someone we cherish and love so much, I find comfort in knowing that Mark is resting peacefully in Heaven and will be one day welcoming us all with open arms. I can see Mark's infectious smile now. Mark is an honorable and true friend that will forever hold a place in my heart and be missed by all that he came in contact with. Mark was an inspirational leader that exuded confidence and always attained high levels of success during his military career. Mark, I miss you so much and want to thank you for being part of my family's life! Please save a place for me for when I am called upon.

May God Bless you and your entire family.

I would like to send you one final message.... Airborne, Rangers Lead the Way, and Roll Tide Roll!

Love Brandon, Rita, & Jessica Jenks

God looked around the garden and saw an empty space.
He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful for he only takes the best.

He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered "Peace be thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone;
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

You will truly be missed.
