Bouchez, Jacques E.

May 16, 1953 - July 18, 2019

Jacques Etienne Bouchez, loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, passed away peacefully at the age of 66 on July 18, 2019.

A memorial mass and service will be held at St. Martha Catholic Church, 4301 Woodridge Pkwy, Porter, TX 77365 on July 29, 2019, Monday at 11AM followed by a reception at the church’s narthex.

He was born on May 16, 1953 in La Louviere, Belgium to Eugene Bouchez (+) and Suzanne Capitte (+). He graduated from the University Catholique de Louvain with a degree in Engineering.

Jacques was Honorary Consul of Belgium in Houston, Texas until his death. For more than 20 years, he was the president and owner of the Crispin Company, a steel trading firm in Houston. He was a co-founder of Nova Belgica, a group created to promote friendship and provide support to Belgian citizens living in Houston, Texas.

Jacques had a passion for living. He was an adventurer and sailor. He traveled to the far corners of the world and sailed across oceans. Jacques lived a full life and did so on his own terms as an independent spirit. A loving husband and father, a generous friend and employer; Jacques was a gracious man. Born in Belgium and ultimately settled in Texas, Jacques was a world citizen who had the good fortune to touch many lives. He will be missed by all who knew him and the world is a little bit smaller without him. May he Rest in Peace.

Jacques is survived by his wife, Cristina; his son and daughter-in-law, Jerome and Irena; his granddaughter, Mila; and his brother, Philippe.
