JeanPaul was the best. He was a best son, a best friend, a best buddy, a best team mate, and the list could continue. He was a person on his own terms, not needing to take the road most traveled.
He loved his brothers and sister without reservation and seldom judged, but chose to see the best in others. He especially loved his cousins, whom he spent countless hours with squeezing the juice out of life. He loved his soccer family and gave everything he had for his friends.
He had big plans, never doubting that he would help change the world and all its injustices and problems. He was a 2015 graduate of Lafayette High School and was currently attending South Louisiana Community College. He was a member of the Lafayette Rock and Mineral Society, and a lifetime member of the Cajun Soccer Club.
JeanPaul did change the world. Anyone who met him was called to love their family and friends with all their being, and to find the beauty in all things.
"If we find the beauty surrounding us and take care of it and share it in his memory, the world will be changed into a better place. Our world will never be the same without him. Ripples." - The Judice Family
JeanPaul is survived by his parents, Lisa and Remi Judice; one sister, Molly Judice; four brothers, Taylor, Quentin, Ethan, and Ian Judice; his paternal grandfather, Ronald Judice and his wife Yvette; and his maternal grandmother Melva Cunningham.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Hilda Judice; and his maternal grandfather, Jack Cunningham.
