Jean Bradley was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and spent his childhood on the Haitian island of Gonave. After the devastating earthquake in 2010, he immigrated to the United States and settled in Brockton.
He learned to speak English, before enrolling at Massasoit Community College, where he was a Commonwealth Honors Scholar and earned his Associates Degree and a Certificate in Criminal Justice. In 2015, he received the Green Key Award, the school’s highest honor, for his civic engagement and unselfish service both to Massasoit and to the greater community.
In 2016 he graduated with Distinction from Suffolk University.
In his short time in the United States, Jean Bradley has done significant public service work for the City of Brockton and the Commonwealth. He worked as an intern for former Mayor Linda Balzotti, and as an intern in the Constituent Services office for former Governor Deval Patrick.
