Moussa Benoit Jean

July 17, 1932 — November 4, 2021

Moussa Benoit Jean was born in 1932 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. His mother, Dulia Geneus was a Nurse at the General Hospital in Port Au Prince, Haiti. He had two sisters by the name of Marie Brunette (Jean) Geneus, Gertie Jean Edouard, and had a son named Richard Jean. He came from a Christian family which wasn’t unusual considering where he was born. From an early age he was very interested in Old Western movies and many of his friends were as well. He came in the United States in the early part of 1970’s after he decided to leave the “Central Dessalines” a sugar plant factory as a personal driver for Bissainthe, the Manager for the factory during that time. He left Haiti in 1970’s to arrive in Miami then shortly he drove for a long trip to Chicago with his Cousin Margarette Glemaud. He started working at Kropp Forge Inc. in Chicago and was a hard worker. He was introduced to a gentle lady by the name of Eva May Choice and married her and they stayed together for over 40 plus some years due to the strong bond they had built together. On Sunday, they attended Church Services together and they took vacation and long road trip to visit family members in other states. These two were inseparable and had a wonderful life. His wife’s health started to decline a little bit and she passed away in 2015. Her death left a sense of despair and he had to cope with living alone and not having her around. The death of his longtime companion affected him for a while. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Jean came to Fayetteville, GA. to live with his son, Richard Jean for five years until January 2021. He then rejoined his sister Marie Brunette Geneus in Miramar, Florida and had very much enjoyed life in Florida. Mr. Jean had a lifelong love of good food, Western movies, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortunes, and travel. He took his last breath at Memorial West Hospital in Florida on the 4th of November 2021.
