Alain was born on September 25, 1966 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti to Marie Therese Laura Desir and Williams Bissainthe. Alain and his family emigrated to Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1974.

As a young man growing up in Cambridge, he was well known for his athletic abilities.

He embodied healthy living and clean eating.  As he searched for his true calling, he held many positions in the fitness industry until he transitioned into healthcare. As a physician assistant, he was passionate about his career and was dedicated to making sure his patients received quality and compassionate healthcare.

Alain was a kind and loving person.  Anyone who had the pleasure to meet him, will agree that his energy was magnetic. His modeling days certainly often captured that great spirit. His world often revolved around sports as Alain played many sports. His two favorites were basketball and boxing.  He would gather the guys many times,to watch boxing matches featuring Holyfield, Tyson or Mayweather. He enjoyed watching ALL of them with his buddies.

He was preceded in death by his mother Marie Therese Laura Desir, his father Williams Bissainthe, his sister Darla Bissainthe, his brother Nesly Bissainthe and stepbrother Marc-Henri Rosius.

I am so very sorry and saddened to learn of Alain’s passing. I knew him when he was a teenager. He and my brother Mike were good friends and he would often be at our house. I will always remember him as a wonderful kid with a great sense of humor who grew into a good and kind man. It was a pleasure and a privilege to have known him. My heart goes out to his family. ❤️
