38 years, 2 months and 1 day … And Jacques Jourlait said goodbye to us and left to live a new experience, because there is another life outside Coverpla. With an iron fist, he applied the strategy of the company, built and structured the commercial and the administrative departments of Coverpla. Coverpla’s internal procedures are signed by his hand, the habits and customs within Coverpla are stamped JJ … This grand Manager is intimately linked to Coverpla’s success, both commercial and human. Whether in France or abroad, Jacques’s silhouette, voice, face and character is known, recognized, appreciated, even feared … An expression that he loves demonstrates the state of mind that animated him all these years: if we go faster alone, remember that together we can go further. A last lunch together, a last word, a last look, always modest, dignified, and moved, like all of us, a tear and a beautiful page is turned.
