Count Jacques De Lesseps was the son of Count Ferdinand de Lesseps, builder of the Suez canal. Born in 1885, died in 1927, De Lesseps was the second man to fly the English Channel and the first man to fly over Montreal. He seems to have been quite friendly with the Wright team and won a significant prize at the International Aviation Tournament in Belmont Park, New York, 1910.
