ROCKY HILL (March 9, 2021) – Update –
Family and Friends, our dear Jude passed away on Thursday, March 4th, surrounded by loved ones, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. He was a treasure and light to this world that will be greatly missed.
He taught us to enjoy life, to love others, and to face hardship with courage and faith. Jude was a friend to everyone, an incredible brother and son, and most devotedly an amazing husband and dad. Jude spent his life following Jesus and leaned on his strong faith. We know that he is now at peace and with God. As of now, contributions for Jude’s family as they grieve this incredible loss can continue to be gifted to this GoFundMe.
Jude was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in 2019. He was known for his radiant personality and if you had the pleasure of meeting him, it’s very likely that you had instantly gained a new friend.
Jude was selfless and was always the first 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 fought cancer in the way he always confronted hardship: with optimism, prayer, and surrounded by friends and family.
The Exantus family is incredibly grateful for all the support, prayers, and contributions.
