Jean E Derissaint
February 7, 1953 – April 12, 2021
Emile, Milo, Uncle Milo, Jean, brother are all names to call one person whose life we are celebrating today.
A cherished brother, a beloved cousin, a loyal friend, and a faithful servant of the Lord, Emile was born in Haiti of deceased parents Jorelus Derissaint and Amelie Hyppolite. He lived in Port-au-Prince until he migrated to the United States of America. He resided in Maryland with ex-wife Eugenie, family and friends for many years then moved to Chicago to be with Yolande, his late older sister, until his sudden passing on April 12, 2021 at Advocate Trinity Hospital.
Emile is survived by a son, Thierry Emile, with 2 grandkids, a beloved family, sisters, cousins, brothers-in-law, nephews, nieces, godchildren, and many devoted friends.
May the gates of heaven open wide to receive Milo where in peace he will be forever!

My sincere condolences to my second family, the DERISSAINTS. Sorry for your loss. I really feel it as much as you do. Although I haven't seen Milo for a while, I remember how nice n humble he was. He was a fighter. He will be missed, especially that he was the only son of the family. He finished his mission on earth but will pursue it in heaven while looking down over us. He will be in the best place with no more suffering or worries. MAY HE REST IN PEACE.

Losing a loved one has always been a heart wrenching experience for us all. When our hearts ache and our souls bleed as a result of death, we only find comfort in shared memories left behind. As for me, one of the great memories I have of Emile happened in Port au Prince, when he took my sister Eugénie and me for a ride, on Christmas Eve. We had so much fun...
May you find peace and comfort in holding to memories of the departed one, as you go through this time of sorrow.
Milo you will be missed!
May your soul rest in peace!

I cherish the memories. I’m grateful for seeing Emile two years ago at his oldest sister’s funeral. Little did I know that it would be the last time. Nonetheless, we had a good time catching up.
Emile, my mom’s cousin, reminds me of what it is to be a gentleman. He and I baptized my cousin Dieula; and he gave me a perfume that day. My teenage self was beside herself with joy. I was very touched. But that’s Emile!
May you Rest In Peace Milo!

My soul is stirred with a silent pain within me and my heart is overwhelmed with emotions as I grieve the unexpected loss of Emile with family and friends.
Though he preceded me into eternity, our earthly memories will last forever.
Rest In Peace !

It is with sadness and a heavy heart that I learned the sudden passing of Emile, whom I knew back in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, during his courtship of my sister Eugenie. At that time, if my recollection serves me well, he was working at the "Banque de l'Union Haitienne" in the downtown area of Port-au-Prince.
I learned to admire that man for his well collected demeanor, as he visited my sister at our residence at Ruelle Robin, Bois Verna, in PAP. After his relocation to the U.S.A., I had the pleasure of seeing him again in Spring Valley, where he married my sister Eugenie. The very last time I saw him was at their residence in Washington, D.C.
His sudden death reminds us of how fleeting our days are on this earth. Death can take away our loved ones, but it can never erase their cherished memories from our hearts.
May his soul rest in peace!

Brother Milo, as time passes by, I still cannot grasp the fact that you are no longer with us. You are truly missed. The only comfort and assurance I am certain of is knowing that God has given and God has taken. May His Name Be Praised. As stated in Psalm 23 verse 4 : "Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." I know you are now at peace with the Lord. So Bro, Rest in his Mighty Presence until we meet again. Love from your dear sister, Yolene.
