Frantz Junior a la capacité de prendre une photo mentale de n'importe quoi ou de n'importe quelle personne et de la reproduire comme s'il s'agissait d'un appareil photo en action. En tant qu'artiste, ses yeux étaient la caméra et ses mains étaient le film, très amical et un farceur hilarant. Bien que ses parents aient eu deux enfants, Frantz fils était la pomme des yeux de Jackie, le lien maternel maternel et l'amour du fils.Parmi les nombreux cadeaux, Jacqueline a reçu de son fils Frantz Mathurin Jr qu'elle chérissait le porte-clés le plus là où il est écrit « Je t'aime maman ! Maman, merci d'être toujours là pour moi. Pas seulement quand j'ai besoin de toi, mais quand j'avais le plus besoin de toi ! Je t'aime tellement ! » Frantz Mathurin Jr laisse dans le deuil ses parents Frantz et Jacqueline Mathurin, sa sœur Rose T. Mathurin, son neveu Princeton Mathurin et sa nièce Mia Hernandez.
