Jeff Cherubin Domond born June 15, 1982 in Pasadena, California. He was the first born of his father, Joseph Magellan Domond and his mother, Rose-Rita Domond. He grew up to be a lovely child with many special gifts such as a passion for music, love for people especially children, and most importantly a kind heart. Jeff was always ready to help anyone.
Jeff attended grammar school at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School in Claremont California, then Damien High School in San Dimas, California. and then Cal State Fullerton as a senior with a communication Major. As he awaiting graduation in June 2005 he was called to be with His Creator on September 6,2004.
Jeff’s earthly life was very short, but we know that the Lord had a purpose. We knew from the bottom of our heart that we had to look deep and find out why he took him at such an early age. We needed to discover what was the call that GOD had for us in Jeff’s memory. We were guided by the Holy Spirit and founded the Jeff Cherubin Domond Foundation focusing on our homeland, Haiti, but specially a rural community of Jacmel, Marbial.
Jeff always embraced his parents’ heritage who immigrated from Haiti. They shared their wonderful heritage of family, education, and honor with their children. It is with all of these in mind that we decided to mold the foundation in his honor focusing on Haiti where basic needs become luxuries. The foundation is guided by Jeff’s most desired wish. His wish for children to be happy and for them to have the basis for a healthy life. He adored children. In this venture, we are able to capture his smile through these lovely children. We know that Jeff is waving and chanting next to our Lord when he sees these children smiling, reading, dancing, and learning. While we are educating these children, we also ministering to others, handing necessities and providing medical care to those who are desperately in need.
