Lyonel Louis-Jean, Adams Dining Hall Cook, Dies at 55

Davis said that once he noticed that someone was disposing of an old organ and called Louis-Jean because he knew he would appreciate it.

“I knew that if anyone was going to use it, it would be him,” Davis said.

In an email to Adams residents, Adams House Resident Dean Sharon L. Howell expressed the community’s sorrow for the loss.

“You should know we (and HUDS) are doing all we can to make sure [the dining hall staff] are supported in this sad moment,” she wrote. “But your support will surely mean a great deal as well.”

Louis-Jean is survived by his wife and two sons, ages 25 and 19.
