Physician.

Born at St. Boniface on 3 January 1914, son of Jean Baptiste Jacques (c1888-1945) and Maria Anna St. Onge (1886-1926), he completed medical studies at the University of Manitoba with the sponsorship of Louis D. Collin. After practicing medicine at Flin Flon and St. Boniface, in 1950 he co-founded the St. Boniface Clinic with Jean-Marie Huot. In later years, he established a small practice at Oakbank and, in retirement, completed a degree in French Language studies at the University of Victoria. He died on 15 July 2004.
