Jean Wil passed away this morning. As many of you know he has been suffering for months. In and out of the hospital, on different medications, with no relief to his pain. This morning he left us.

Though he will no longer be with us physically, Jean Wil will always be in the hearts of ESPWA. He was a young boy who was caring, patient, and had a smile that was contagious. His fifteen years were cut short, as Jean Wil had so much to offer the world and the people he encountered. He made an impact on us all, and will forever be embedded in our minds when we think of Pwoje ESPWA and Haiti.

Jean Will, I love you. You will be missed.


  1. My dear Paige-Even across the miles, I feel your loss. I am so glad that I was able to meet Jean Wil last Sunday; such a special suprise Father Marc gave to the both of you. He was a dear boy to so many people. I'll keep his brother, and everyone at Project Espwa close to my heart at this difficult time.
    I love you.

  2. My heart is so so heavy. I, too, am grateful I was able to hug and touch Jean Wil, Paige. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. I love you.

  3. Paige,
    I am so sorry. He will live in my memory as a kind and honorable young man. You and all who mourn him are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless You, Sweetie.
    Your cousin,

  4. Paige,
    It is so sad and heartbreaking to hear this news. My thoughts and prayers are with you all through this tough time.
    Love you-Your cousin - Katee
