Jacques was a handsome, talented man with the most loving, tender heart. When you were hurting Jacques was hurting and offering encouragement.
Jacques was an accomplished athlete and he was quickly becoming a skilled carpenter and contractor. But Jacques was best at loving everyone around him, deeply and unapologetically. He made friends easily and loved them well. Jacques’ love for his coaches and teammates transcended his love for the game which was huge. He especially loved his many cousins, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces. He loved pets, especially his dog, Winston, and he had a special love for his Nanny Michelle.
Jacques was deeply loved by his family. He would tell anyone who would listen about them. Jacques showed his love openly with hugs, kisses and saying he loved you as he left; it was normal for him. He had amazing hugs and kisses even though he may have just kissed Winston on the lips.
"We are thankful for the wonderful years we were blessed to have with Jacques in our lives. We have come to realize in Jacques passing that God’s love was amplified through him. He has left a trail of evidence that he loved those around him unconditionally. When you remember Jacques, let that encourage you to love God more intimately, your loved ones, your friends, your family and strangers you meet more deeply. Be bold in your love!" - The Judice Family
