CJ was a lifelong resident of Marrero and longtime employee of Napa Auto Parts. CJ's passion was in music, art and car shows. He learned to play the
piano on his own at the very young age of 17 and his voice was a natural God-given gift. He was inducted into the Westbank Musician's Hall of Fame in 2006 as being a longtime singer and piano player with the New Orleans Chiffons. CJ spent many long hours fine tuning his art skills in airbrushing, photography and graphic design.
