Jean Ais

June 8, 1926 — August 7, 2022


Jean Yves Ais, of Charlotte, passed away Sunday, August 7, 2022 at his residence in Charlotte, North Carolina
Yves was born June 8, 1926 in Haiti to the late Isaac Ais and Docile Verdieux Ais.

He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings: sisters Franchette, Christine and brothers Joseph Lucien, Gerard Ais.

Yves was an avid soccer fan, devoted husband, loving father, grandfather and uncle.   He resided in Haiti the majority of his life where he worked as a government employee and retired after over 30 years of service.  He migrated to New York in the early 2000s and moved to Charlotte where he lived the past 7 to 10 years.  Yves was a jack of all trades…  nothing he could not fix with some Crazy Glue.  His family was his priority and he devoted his entire life to ensure our wellbeing.  He will be dearly missed.
