Sun Times Feature Story


Jacques Raymond Abitan, 63


Sunny Isles Beach resident was a shining star to family and friends
   His smile was contagious. His positive attitude and love for his family was something that was admired by all.
   At the young age of 63, Jacques Raymond Abitan was taken from those who had loved and respected someone who always wanted the best for his family and the many who watched him light up their lives for decades.
   Born in Morocco, Abitan's travels took him to Canada, New York, California and eventually south Florida, where he lived in the city of Sunny Isles Beach. He and his wife, Simone are the co-founders and owners of Britannica/Festa Holidays Travel Agency, Inc.
   After a courageous 5 year battle with cancer, Abitan passed on March 19th at the age of 63.
   The funeral was held on Friday, March 20th at Riverside Gordon in Aventura and was laid to rest in Davie. He will be eternally missed and loved by all those who knew him. He was a great husband, wonderful father, son and he welcomed grandparenthood with open arms calling himself by his latter name, "Papa Jacques."
   Abitan is survived by Mother, Alegria Attias, his loving wife Simone Abitan of 42 years, his son Stephane, daughter-in-law Shari, Grandson, Matthew, daughter Joelle Abitan-Colon, her husband Manuel Colon, grandchildren Melanie and Jason Colon, his daughter, Sabrina.
