Christopher Robateau

Lieutenant Christopher Robateau, JCPD of Carteret, formerly of Jersey City was killed while helping assist a motorist on the NJ Turnpike on Friday, January 5, 2018.  He was 49 years old.
Christopher joined the Jersey City Police Department in 1994 and quickly distinguished himself as a very kind compassionate officer.  He received over 40 Meritorious Police Service Awards during his career.
Christopher loved his family above all else.  They remember him as a proud father, who loved spending time with his family and making them laugh, who enjoyed practical jokes, cigars, scary movies and lived for his vacation time with his family, planning every detail for months in advance.  He was an amazing husband and father and his son Darin shared that his father “was able to teach an important life lesson in only a few sentences”.
Christopher was predeceased by his parents, William and Carmita Robateau; sisters, Yolanda Robateau and Patricia Morales and brother, Anthony Robateau.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 17 years, Rose Mercedez (nee Lopez) Robateau; sons, Darin, Christopher, Jr. and Michael Christian Robateau; brother, William Robateau; sister, Juliet Williams; sister-in-law, Norma Colon-Robateau; nieces, Carmita Morales, Elizabeth, Juliet and  Fidelia Williams and Emalis Robateau and nephews, Dudley Williams and Anthony William Robateau, Nicholas Peter Robateau and  as well as his beloved dog Rosie.  Christopher is also survived by many cousins and friends. He was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing him.  
The wake will be at McLaughlin Funeral Home on Tuesday and Wednesday, from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. Everyone is invited to assemble at St. Aedan’s: The Saint Peter’s University  Church, 800 Bergen Avenue, Jersey City on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 11:00am for the Mass of Christian Burial.
In lieu of flowers donations to Union Catholic High School Scholarship Fund, 1600 Martine Avenue Scotch Plains, NJ 07076 would be greatly appreciated.

Chris you were one of the nicest people I have ever met. Every time I saw you, I was greeted by you and asked how I was doing. You were the perfect gentleman so respectful. I will always remember all of the times I was in your company, especially the boys basketball game, and having you and your family at our home for a 4th of July celebration. You were always there to give advice and help whenever you could. You were definitely a one of a kind guy. God has taken you way to soon, but must have a plan to have wanted you this soon. You will always be in our hearts and if your family ever needs anything we will be there for them. Rest in peace You are an angel and amazing star in the sky.

Thank you Chris for being my niece's great friend, her husband's life buddy and always showing my god son a symbol of a great humanitarian. For me and my family, it was an honor, a privilege and a blessing to have known you. We could never forget you, we will never forget you and will always remember and honor you.

It is with a heavy heart that I send on behalf of my family, our sincerest condolences to the entire Robateau Family. My family and I had the honor of meeting Christopher in April 2017 at Union Catholic High School while he so proudly celebrated Christopher Jr. receiving the Sandra Stagg Memorial Scholarship. Although our meeting was a brief moment in life, speaking with Chris was evident that he was a kind, caring, giving and loving man. May he rest in peace and join all the other Angel's who watch over us till we meet again! David M. Stagg III (UC84')

To the family and close friends of Lt. Robateau. May you draw comfort and peace from our Heavenly Father who comforts us during our trials. He is well aware of our pain and sorrow, and in time will reverse all our sufferings during his Kingdom by Christ. (Matthew 6:9,10; Revelation 21:4) May these verses be a source of comfort along with your fond memories of your dear one.
