Hugues Josama was born on May 13th, 1968 in Port au Prince, Haiti to the parentage of Heureuse Elmera and the late Ceradieu Josama. He leaves behind his younger siblings Eddy, Danny, Sylvienne, Kerlande, Fidelia, Huguener, and Hiltrude to which he was a parental figure, and his daughter Halina.
In 1985 at the age of 17, Hugues’ mother left Haiti in search of a better life for her children. That started the transition of where Hugues became a father to his younger siblings. From making sure they ate, and prepare for school, there was nothing he would not do for his family.
Beyond being the kindhearted man that he was, Hugues was also the most down-to-earth person there was as he was always gentle and the easiest person one could talk to. He was calm, perceptive, and a gentle soul. Hugues never spoke ill of anyone, and one thing he always loved to say was, “Be careful of the way you think. Just know that God has you and be thankful.”
Hugues loved to read and write as the intelligent man he was. He went to high school at Gerard Gourgue in Haiti and from there on he went to college to major in journalism and photography. Afterward, working at Palais National, followed by becoming a cameraman at PVS television in Haiti.
He migrated to the United States in September of 1999 where he continued to follow his passions. A father figure to a new generation consisting of his nieces and nephews: Heureusna, Beverly, Leila, Jayson, Kayla, Huguener Jr., Trudy, Darnell, Ramari, Benjamin, Haeden, Reechlandy, and Hugino.
His presence, warmth, and love still remain within us to this day.
