The ice of his hometown Acton Vale, Quebec is deep in Jacques’ bones. That’s why you can often find him at the ice rink where as past coach of both the boys’ and girls’ varsity teams he is there cheering and making sure that everything at the rink is in good order. When he isn’t at the rink, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Chantal (also a Winchendon teacher), and their daughter, Rosanne. He is also a runner, golfer and talented pianist and amazing whistler.
