USSC Group announced that Jesse Broussard passed away on January 25, leaving behind a distinguished career, family, and friends.
Broussard was a sr. sales consultant for USSC since 1995. Though many in the industry would consider him family, Broussard was especially close to those at the USSC Group.
His career in the mass transit industry started in 1963 when he was one of the first African-American bus drivers hired by Rapid Transit Line. By overcoming adversity and the daily prejudices that he faced, he climbed the ranks at Rapid Transit Line, which became HouTran and ultimately Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (Metro). Broussard began his consulting at USSC after retiring from Metro as director, transportation, and has been with the company ever since.
Broussard will be remembered for his very unique ability to forgive - his approach removed barriers and paved roads for future generations. USSC asks that you join them in remembering Jesse, praying for his family, and celebrating his life of accomplishment.
