Paul Francis Jaques, M.B., B.S., M.R.C.P., F.R.C.R.


The families of Dr. Paul Francis Jaques, here and in the UK, mourn the passing of a brilliant and devoted man. Dr. Jaques passed away at the Residential Hospice in Alamance County, North Carolina on December 16th, 2015 after a long illness. Throughout his illness, Paul exhibited remarkable courage and determination to continue to live his life despite his condition.


Dr. Paul Jaques, M.D., was born in London, England on June 16th, 1940. He received his medical degree in 1970 from the University of London, and the Middlesex Hospital Medical School in 1971. Dr. Jaques practiced in London before traveling with his young family to the United States to do a sabbatical in the Radiology department in the University of North Carolina Medical School/ UNC Hospitals in 1975. Meant to only be eighteen months, the sabbatical became a permanent position with Dr. Jaques establishing the Interventional Radiology program at the University of North Carolina Hospital in Chapel Hill, NC.


Dr. Jaques rapidly attained full professorship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he led the Vascular and Interventional Radiology division in the Department of Radiology, and was instrumental in many technologic initiatives. Dr. Jaques published many articles and written works that were foundational for subsequent radiology success. Paul trained and mentored countless interventional radiologists, both residents and fellows, who currently practice worldwide.


In his later years, Paul was able to overcome past struggles and help others do the same through personal support and advice. Dr. Paul Jaques was known for his celebratory character and willingness to step in whenever help was needed. He was truly the life of every party and loved his family and friends as much as he loved life itself. Paul loved a good round of golf and had a passion for sailing and later, for flying. A true Brit through and through, Paul remained loyal to the Queen of England all his life, as a British citizen.


 He is survived by his wife, Carole S. Jaques of Chapel Hill, North Carolina and her son Francis F. Pyne and his wife, Kim Pyne; former spouse, Constance (Non) Jaques and four children, Ruth K.A. Morgans, Rhian C. Jaques, Jane J. Morris and her husband, Edward Morris and their children, Max Morris and Esme Morris, and Ben P.Ff. Jaques-Leslie and his wife Margaret Jaques-Leslie and their son, Sam Jaques-Leslie; former spouse Bernadette Keefe, MD. and their son Christopher F.P. Jaques; brother, Basil Jaques, his wife, Penelope Jaques, and their three children, Adam, Timothy, and Jamie Jaques; and brother, Nigel Harris, his wife, Tirril Harris, their son, Dilip Harris, and their daughter Kate Thompson. He is predeceased by step-son, Brandon W. Pyne.

Memorial Tributes

"Paul was an amazing mentor and inspiration. His approach and techniques were unorthodox and innovative. He did not mind sharing his mistakes and failures and that is certainly one thing that distinguished him from other MD's and a trait that I will never forget. He was so refreshingly honest! I  think of him and the lessons he taught me on a regular basis in my practice - even 25 years later.  I will miss him. Condolences to his family."
