Before Indy Eleven: Jérôme is a familiar face to the Eleven faithful, who watched the Haitian National Team staple take on Indy from 2015-2017 as a member of Armada FC. The 31-year-old defender stayed in Jacksonville for the 2018 season before joining current Indy Eleven head coach Mark Lowry at Locomotive FC for the last three seasons, during which he registered 56 appearances. Jérôme has appeared in 200 professional contests, including 104 in USL Championship regular season and playoff action combined with El Paso, Charlotte Independence (2015), Montreal Impact Reserves (2014), and Orlando City SC (2011-12). Jerome also spent the 2013-14 seasons with Sporting Kansas City – including the squad’s MLS Cup winning campaign in 2013 – and ranks as the third most capped player in Haitian senior team history with 74 appearances.
International: Jérôme has been playing for his home country of Haiti’s national team since 2008, when he was only 18 years old. Jérôme has made 77 international appearances for Haiti, scoring 4 goals throughout those appearances. His latest call-up to Les Grenadiers was on June 8, 2021 in a 1-0 victory over Nicaragua.
