Jean received his formal education through Brooklyn NY public school, Paul Robeson High School, and BMCC. While living in Brooklyn he met the love of his life Shawona. Once they started to have children they both decided to move further north to give their children everything they valued in life. Jean and Shawona settled in Troy NY on October 22nd, 2000. They tied the knot at City Hall on July 12th of 2001. During Jean's adulthood, he continued his studies at Bryant Stratton College for phlebotomy and E.O.C for nursing assisting.

He is predeceased by his father Dominique Chevry. Jean departed into heaven on April 5th, 2021. Jean was a loving husband, the best father to his children, and an amazing friend. Jean was a man that always kept a smile on his face and didn’t go a day without laughing and making jokes. He was the happiest around his family and loved spending time with them. He took pride in providing and supporting his family. His favorite sayings were ¨I am blessed¨ and ¨I am God's son for life¨ as he was a huge believer in Christ. Jean will truly be missed by his family and friends. We love you, James, always and forever!
