Jérôme Jean-Charles was a French speedcuber. In 1981 he won the French Cubing Championship, and competed in the World Championship in 1982.
He worked as a journalist and was 25-years-old in October 1981 when he beat 4,000 contestants and 10 finalists in the French Championship. He achieved a winning time of 25.6 seconds. He was awarded a "golden cube" from Erno Rubik himself.
At the first World Rubik's Cube Championship 1982 in Budapest (5 June) he finished in sixth place with a best time (in round 3) of 25.06 seconds. At 26-years-old he was (along with Zoltán Lábas of Hungary) the oldest contestant. David Singmaster reports that he used a Corners First method. Singmaster had previously noted that "Jean-Charles also makes moves just flipping a corner piece with a finger".
