Jacques is retired from the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) where he was Director of University Relations. USRA is a non profit association of universities who are involved in space related research. While there, he was involved with several programs including the soon-to-fly Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). SOFIA will be the largest airborne observatory in the world, and will make observations that are impossible for even the largest and highest of ground-based telescopes.

Jacques and his father, 1996.Since 1996, Jacques has been working on the genealogy of his family with the help of a distant cousin in Montréal and more recently via several contacts on the Internet. He now has traced his roots back 12 generations to René L'Hérault dit L'Heureux from France and has found over 85 Internet cousins on his L'Heureux side and half a dozen more on his mother's side (Baril), from California, Kansas, British Columbia, Florida, Manitoba and Baffin Island, Australia, England and of course Québec. He is the administrator of over 8 mailing lists devoted to the surnames of his ancestors. A page is also devoted to his famous cousins which include René Levesque, Jean Chrétien, the Dionne quintuplets, Céline Dion and Felix Leclerc, to name a few. A L'Heureux reunion attended by over 100 cousins took place in Montréal in September of 1998.  He is also an active member of the St-Arnaud dit Bertrand Association.
