The Exantus Family

Jude passed away on Thursday, March 4 after a courageous battle with lung cancer.  He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in 2019. Jude had a radiant personality.  If you had the pleasure of meeting him, it’s very likely that you instantly gained a new friend. He was selfless and always willing to lend a helping hand. He grew up in Haiti and moved to the U.S. after surviving the 2010 Earthquake.  He and his wife worked tirelessly to provide a life and a home in the US to raise their three children. He approached this disease in the way he always confronted hardship: with optimism, prayer, and surrounded by friends and family.  Jude was incredibly grateful for all the support, prayers, and contributions that him and his family received.  Future contributions will go towards assisting in the college education of his children.
