He practiced here for 30 years, notably at his weekly clinics at the Hôpital Louis-H. Lafontaine. He also raised three children, and travelled extensively with his wife of 42 years.
He is predeceased by his daughter Signe and his son Sinchi. Jesus is survived by his wife Ute and his son Peter (Louise), grandsons Vincent and Charles, son in law George, grandsons DJ and Terrence, and Signe, his first wife and mother of his children.
The family will privately celebrate his life at a later date.
