Fred St. Amand Jr. Would Like To Extend His Deepest Condolences To The Many Friends and Family of Diejuste Volne
Jean Michel Dieujuste Volne went home to the Lord on September 7, 2018 at 12:56pm. He left many with broken hearts when God decided to take his son back home at the age of fifty-four years old. He will truly be missed by all of his loved ones, relatives, friends and his church members. Fr. Volne was born in Lazil, Haiti on April 14, 1964. He was the youngest of three children to Victoire and Dieuvile Volne. In 1985 he met and married his wife Nadege Lapierre Volne and within that same year he entered the United States at the age of twenty-two. A few years later he became a member of Mount Olive Church of God in 1989. During this time Fr. Volne spent 8 years traveling back and forth to Haiti to visit his Wife and Children until they were granted access to enter the United States. This became the happiest day of his life. Throughout his life he worked as a waiter on a cruise ship for 5 years, taxi driver for 15 years and a truck driver for 10 years.
Fr. Volne worked hard his whole life for 30 plus years where he provided for his family and raised his children to serve the Lord, respect others and to be successful in life. Education was his number one priority for his children. He wanted them to have a better life than he had. He was also very passionate in the core of the church. He created a group called Temoin De L’Agneau and was a member of the church choir as well as FAMO. Fr. Volne also directed Sunday morning service, as well as week nights service. He had an amazing singing voice where those from afar would recognized who he was. He loved singing for Lord and enjoyed singing for his love ones. He was a hardworking man, enjoyed the company of others, appreciated a good political discussion, he was caring, loving, funny and had a very contagious laugh. His love for his family was endless and he would do anything to provide for them. He will be missed by many.
His greatest accomplishments were raising his three children and watching them find success in their lives. Fr. Volne was very proud to see his first-born son Stanley Volne serve his Country as a U.S Navy Officer, while stationed overseas for 9 years in Bahrain and Japan. He also was able to see his second eldest child Nathalie Frank graduate from Rowan University with a Bachelor’s degree and a career in Human Resources, and was given the chance to walk her down the aisle and became a grandfather to her children Aalijah and Austin Frank. He was then blessed to watch his youngest child Vanessa Desilmar graduate from Rutgers University with her Master’s in social work, and also walked her down the aisle. He loved his wife beyond words and found great strength through her through his battle with liver cancer. He fought so hard to live and stayed so strong until September 7, 2018 when his maker took him to Heaven.
Fr. Volne survived by his wife of 33 years Marie Nadege Volne, his three children Stanley Volne, Nathalie Frank, Vanessa Desilmar, his sister in law Evena Badio, Eda Delus, brother in law, Jacques Janvier, Sony Philogene, Allwich Barbier, his grandchildren, Aalijah Frank, Austin Frank, his son in law, Kevin Frank, and Joab Desilmar. He also survived by his mother Victoria Volne, his brother, Jean Robert and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends and his family at Mount Olive Church of God.
