Jean Claude St Jean was born on January 25, 1962 in Chardonette, city of Corail, on the beautiful island of Haiti. He was the last of five children, born to Melene Saint-Jean and Cilina Joseph Saint-Jean. He went to L'école Adventiste de Vertiere, and then studied at Centre Technique De Saint-Gerard in Port-Au-Prince. He graduated with an associates degree in Electricity in 1991.
In 1992, his son Ritchie was born. Ritchie was his pride and joy. After years of working as an electrician, he decided to emigrate to the United States in 2002. He lived in Miami, Florida for a few years, and then moved to Kingston, New York. He worked at the Devereux Foundation in Red Hook, New York for over a decade. Throughout those years he was given awards and accolades reflecting his service, character, and compassion. Coworkers often talked about his charismatic personality, and described how he would go out his way for others. Jean Claude was an active member of the Mid-Hudson SDA Church. As a member, he was involved in the Men's Ministry and served as Deacon.
He was a man who loved his family and was passionate about education. He loved to see people succeed and move forward in life. He was a God-fearing man who prayed without ceasing, and always made time to study the word of God. His passing is untimely and devastating, but we have this hope that we will see him when the trumpets sound and Jesus Christ returns again. Jean Claude is resting and waiting for the second coming. "And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Look! God's dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Revelation 21: 3-4.
