We are devastated to share the news that Naples Pathways Coalition and the entire community has lost a dear friend, Jean Heuschen. On Tuesday, May 19th, he died doing one of the things he loved most, cycling.
A past NPC board member, he was always ready with a smile, a story, and insight on current events around the globe and close to home. He leaves behind his high school sweetheart and adoring wife of over 50 years, Michelle, children Phillipe and Florence, two grandchildren, and countless grieving friends.
He was a big man with an even bigger heart and love of life. He was passionate about excellent food and wine, cycling and cycling safety, and was an absolutely brilliant man of science with his Ph.D. in Polymer Science.
Jean had logged well over 62,000 miles on the bike in the past ten years, across the United States and the world. Enjoying all that life has to offer here in Naples during season for the past 20 years, his home in Goult, in the Luberon section of Provence, France, was his castle.
Our thoughts and prayers of comfort go out to Jean's family and all of us who will forever miss this amazing man.
