Jacques is a bowling instructor who pursued an affair with Marge Simpson.


Jacques in the Simpsons Movie.

Jacques offers to teach Marge Simpson to bowl after she receives a bowling ball for her birthday. He is captivated by Marge and slowly tries to woo her. While at brunch, which Jacques explains as "not quite breakfast, not quite lunch, but you get a slice of cantalope at the end". Jacques finds the courage to ask Marge back to his apartment in Fiesta Terraces. He ends up alone when Marge chose to stick with her true love Homer. Marge believed that his last name was "Brunswick", because it was engraved on his bowling ball yet that was really only the brand of his ball.[1]

He is later as a part of a bowling team called the Home Wreckers, consisting of Princess Kashmir, Mindy Simmons, and Lurleen Lumpkin.[2]

He took part in the world's tallest human pyramid record attempt.

He is seen as part of the angry mob trying to find Homer.[3]


Jacques is somewhat of a Casanova and mainly seems to try to seduce his clients instead of actually teaching them anything. He speaks with a French accent, yet when he yells he mysteriously seems to lose the accent.
