Jacques Bessard

February 20, 1935April 19, 2021

Jacques Bessard (aka Seba) was born at Limbe, Haiti on 02/20/1935. He was the son of late Saint Parvin Bessard and Lorticia Desronville. After a long hard fought battle with illness, Jacques died peacefully on April 19, 2021 at Jackson Memorial Hospital. He is survived by his lovely wife Sizelia Edouard, his 6 children and spouses Jacquelin Bessard and his ex Guerda Ulysse, Guilene Gedeon, and Solitane Saint Flerose, Elius and Mirlande E Bessard, Naomi Jean and Nirva, Emmanise Bessard, Marguerite J and Frantz Blanc, Jacqueline B and Joel Decimus, and also Nancy Bessard. His brothers and sisters Jean Aristole Bessard, Ortance Robenson, Jasmin Bessard, Marie Eva Bessard, Elvicaire Bessard, Emilienne Bessard, Jean Baptiste Bessard, Meila and Johnny Bessard. His grandchildren Jeanide B and husband, Jean Gardy, Jimmy, Jimmyka Bessard, Nehemie, Edwin, Elius Jr , Elisa, Milliy, Diana, Joshua Bessard, Papou, Frantz Jr, Schneider, Jeffrey and Stacy Blanc, Jenny, Jamesy, Sheslie D Verdieux and Husband, Jessica Decimus, Aly, Jocelyne B and husband, and his numerous nephews, and nieces, uncles and aunts, cousins, and grand cousins. Jacques was a very hard working husband, father, and grandfather who would spend hours working hard on the farm, no matter the weather condition, to take care of his family. He was a very quiet, soft spoken, and introverted person who always had a friendly smile on his face. Calmness and peace were something that he preferred most in the world, as he always said: “I rather be hungry but calm and in peace, than having a full stomach but consistently in conflict with others”. Jacques was a strong believer in God who constantly went to early service at the Catholic church. Throughout the times of his fight with illness, he never surrendered his faith. As he was laying on the bed, his last request was a special prayer of forgiveness and welcoming in the kingdom of the Almighty God. He will be missed by his family, friends, and everyone who knew him.
