Jean Alex Leriche 1992 - 2020

PHILADELPHIA - Jean A. Leriche, age 27 of Northeast Philadelphia was tragically killed in a targeted shooting on October 10, 2020 at a nearby park from his family residence.

Alex was born on November 6, 1992, in Brooklyn New York to Sergo and Laurence Leriche, the youngest in a family of six children. He was brought up in the Christian Faith, believing and trusting God at a very young age. The family soon moved to Philadelphia when Alex was only seven years old, there he attended Creighton Elementary School, Grover Washington Middle School, and Samuel Fels High School. After High School, Alex decided to forgo a college education and pursue various training programs in business, trade schools and construction, all in preparation to become an entrepreneur.

One of Alex’s passions was helping others. He was always available and willing to help whenever he was asked. He had a natural ability to connect with people of all ages, especially with children. His closest friends were kids that he knew and grew up with from a very young age. His friendships were deep and long lasting. He was independent minded and a leader amongst his peers.

Alex is survived and will be missed by his Parents Sergo and Laurence Leriche, by his Siblings Herlande Leriche, Lysandre (Dee) Leriche, James Leriche, Nadine Florent and Laura Marcelin, and by his nieces and nephews Arielle and Joline Florent; Jazmei Perrin; Ethan, Sophie and Levi Leriche; Laurence, Ava and Ezra Marcelin. By his Uncles and Aunts: Wilky Morette, Michelet and Madelene Leriche, by his cousins Myriam, Carline, Jude, Jessie and Jeff Leriche, and by many close friends who he considers Family.

The LERICHE family will receive very close family and a limited amount of friends (due to social distance restrictions) for a memorial service on Saturday October 17, from 9:00AM - 11:00AM at Ebenezer Haitian Baptist Church, 258 E. Roosevelt Blvd. Philadelphia PA 19120

May the God of all comfort be with each one of you during this moment of trial. May His presence be ever nearer to your hearts as He brings strength and peace like He alone can.

"I do not know why oft ’round me
My hopes all shattered seem to be;
God’s perfect plan I cannot see,
But someday I’ll understand.

Refrain:
Someday He’ll make it plain to me,
Someday when I His face shall see;
Someday from tears I shall be free,
For someday I shall understand.

I cannot tell the depth of love
Which moves the Father’s heart above,
My faith to test, my love to prove,
But someday I’ll understand.

Tho' trials come thru passing days,
My life will still be filled with praise;
For God will lead thru darkened ways,
But someday I’ll understand.
