Meet Gio

Joselito and Chantal (St. Brice) Desir started Gio's House of Hope and Restoration to honor the life of their late son, LCPL Giovanni (Gio) Jose Techan Desir. ​ Gio, a marine, was proud of his Haitian heritage and was passionate about helping those in need. Throughout his 24 years of life, Gio loved everyone, especially children, and was loved by many. Gio lives on in all the hearts he left behind, and through Gio's House of Hope and Restoration, we carry his legacy forward.
