    My deepest sympathies to Jean’s family and friends. Jean was a great guy who absolutely loved racing cars. With generosity and kindness, Jean took me under his wing in 1999 and I raced 7 seasons with him in car #40. Jean, your Equipe Pumpkin rides again. I know you are peeling around the corners on heaven’s racetrack, with a huge grin on your face. Thanks for the best times and memories ever. You are loved and remembered. Rest in peace. Kim (aka Sparkle)
