Domonique Assante Jones, age 22 of Greenwood and formerly of Indianapolis, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, June 10, 2022. He was born in Indianapolis on August 10, 1999, the son of Don and Angie Hannon. Domonique was a 2018 graduate of Perry Meridian High School. While in high school, Domonique was very involved in playing the drums in the school marching band. He currently worked for Popeyes. From a young age, Domonique enjoyed playing basketball with his friends and family and was known to get a little competitive at times. You could find Domonique at many different local parks and his Papa’s playing basketball day and night. He also liked to do Jiu Jitsu and boxing with his Uncle Bryan. He was a sports fan and enjoyed watching basketball and football, especially his favorite teams the Phoenix Suns and the Kansas City Chiefs. Domonique was lucky enough to meet one of his all-time favorite basketball players, Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat while he was working at Penn Station. He liked to play video games, especially 2K, Modern Warfare and Mortal Combat.
Domonique was a fun loving man who was known as a prankster and could make anyone laugh. His mere presence and positive attitude could light up a whole room. He looked forward to his nightly walks with Maria and his dog, “Zeus” at their favorite park in Greenwood. Domonique had his own great sense of style and collected numerous sneakers over the years. You could pretty much guarantee that no matter what Domonique was doing, he was also listening to music. He loved all types of music. To be a part of Domonique’s life was a blessing and to be loved by him was like no other. More than anything, Domonique loved his family and friends and would do anything for them.
