Hello and welcome to Vanessa Marcotte’s memorial website.

On August 7th, 2016, Vanessa was tragically taken from us and we have been dealing with that terrible loss on a daily basis.

Vanessa was a kind, compassionate, intelligent person. She exemplified all the positive qualities that one looks for when choosing a friend, co-worker, roommate, or confidant.

She had a great sense of style and was happy to give advice to her mother, aunt, relatives, and friends as to how to pull off that special outfit.
She enjoyed running, walking, reading, yoga, and trips to Cape Cod beaches.

Whether it was helping at a food bank, tutoring and mentoring high school students, running road races that supported Dana Farber Cancer Institute and children’s Hospital, or planting community gardens in the inner city, Vanessa always found time to embrace the spirit of giving back.

In order to perpetuate Vanessa’s legacy of volunteerism the family is in the process of establishing the VANESSA T. MARCOTTE FOUNDATION which will support causes that were dear to her.
Please revisit this website for further updates regarding the Foundation and to learn more about Vanessa and the organizations which we will support in her name.

Ultimately, we want Vanessa to be remembered by the quality of her life, the strength of her character, and the goodness within her heart, not by the tragic circumstances of her death.

Should you have information that you feel is relevant to her case please consider contacting the Tip Hotline at 508-453-7589. News and developments regarding the investigation will be posted as often as possible, so please check back frequently.
