Born in Silisteni-Costesti, in the Arges District, Romania, in 1944, of Petre & Elena Jercan, Orthodox parents, Constantin went through elementary schooling in Homoraciu Commune, near Teleajen (Ploiesti).
After the High School graduation he pursued his College Education in Ploiesti.
Although he did live his youth in the middle of the communistic era, when everyone and everything was restricted for the "common man", Constantin was fascinated by the free market economy, practiced by the capitalistic society, therefore he decided to enroll in the College of Commerce, in Ploiesti, from where he graduated with a Bachelor Degree in "Business, Management & Commerce", thus enabling him not only to successfully work in this field, for the Commerce Market in Ploiesti (until 1982, when he immigrated in the USA), but to also continue this trade in the States, until his death.
His parents, persecuted by the communist regime in Romania, immigrated in America at the begining of 1981.
A year later (in 1982), Constantin, his wife Getta (nee Constantinescu) and his 2 children, born in Romania, joined his parents in Minneapolis, Minnesotta (through the reunification of the family process), first - living for a few months in MN - then, settling permanently in Los Angeles, California.
Arriving in Los Angeles, at the end of 1982, besides working a regular job in construction, during the day, Constantin went to pursue his studies, during the evening vocational training, getting and maintaining active his Licenses in Commerce, Real Estate, Management and General Contractor's.
Constantin and his wife Getta took employment with "Stanley Management", a big Managerial Company in Southern California, presently supervising and managing quite a few income properties in Southern California.
Eversince 1982, up to the present, the Jercan Family, continued unceseasingly to support the church, both personally and materially, himself, as well as his wife, thus fulfilling various callings and duties such as: parish council member, later on Chairman of the Board, chairman of the building project; (while his wife, Getta, had leading roles in the parish Ladies Aid: secretary, auditor, president - for many terms-, chair-woman of dinners, banquets and special activities' projects, etc.)
Since the incorporation of Eastern Orthodox Heritage Foundation (2006), Constantin accepted to initially serve on the Board of Directors, then, later-on, as an Administrator of the Fund-raising and Managerial Board (Los Angeles chapter).
On February 4, 2010 Constantin Jercan passed on.
