Dr. Jacques Charles is a proud immigrant. He was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere, where he spent his early childhood. Despite the many hardships he endured during his formative years in his native country, as an adult he has risen to a high level of academic, cultural, and professional success. His unflagging work ethic, his regard and respect for others, his humanitarianism, his interest in the Humanities, Science and Art, have all influenced and made possible his successes in the United States. Throughout his life, he has earned and enjoyed substantial recognition of his personal and professional merit and his abiding commitment to the American ideals. He possesses the heart and mind of a human being with unending confidence in humanitarianism and the art of healing.
Dr. Charles is a strong young man who learned to persevere in the face of many early hardships in his native country. He lost both his mother and father early in his childhood. His mother passed away shortly after his birth due to postpartum depression, and his father died as a result of an automobile accident. Losing both parents left him an orphan at the tender age of six. During his early childhood in Haiti, he experienced horrible living standards that seriously threatened his survival. He witnessed military tanks shooting at children during the political overthrow of leader Duvalier, and the slow death of Haitians caused by famine. He survived the brutal life that he witnessed as a child, and knew then as he believes now, that no child should experience the cruelties and hardships that he endured.
Dr. Charles immigrated to the United States at the age of ten and attended primary and secondary school in West Palm Beach, Florida. He moved to California in 2000 to attend College. Dr. Charles was very fortunate to have his aunt and cousins (his aunt’s children) who were willing and able to provide a home, and who welcomed, embraced and nurtured him when he arrived in America. Dr. Charles wants to thank the Lord Jesus Christ his Savior for watching over him and his family and for rescuing him from the poverty and the struggles in Haiti, and providing an opportunity to renew his life and his faith in God daily.
Dr. Charles has realized that his background is not unique, that undoubtedly there have been others who came from places where war and poverty dominate and devastate all life. However, the circumstances that he encountered, endured, conquered and survived in his life have enabled him to become a stronger and more disciplined person. He is one of the few in his family to survive childhood, graduate from high school, attend college, become a Doctor of Chiropractic, and a skin care professional. He was spared the more common outcome that the circumstances of early life could have destroyed his spirit and ambitions. His life experience and history is never far from his consciousness, even now, as he faces the exhilarating prospect of opening and running his private practice and beginning to prepare himself for the Chiropractic, Electrolysis, and Professional skin care career that has long been a cherished goal.
In his spare time, Dr. Jacques Charles enjoys modeling (clothing) and practicing yoga. Additionally, he enjoys dancing the Salsa and the Flamenco, and his daily 5-mile run!
