The two separated when Jarre was five years old; his father moved to the United States, while his mother remained in the suburbs of Paris to look after their son.Jarre did not meet his father again until he was eighteen.Jarre's Grandfather, André Jarre, was an oboe player, engineer and inventor, who also designed an early audio mixer used at Radio Lyon. He also gave Jean Michel his first record player.For the first eight years of his life, Jarre spent six months of each year at his grandparent's flat along the Cours de Verdun, in the Perrache district of Lyon.
