While growing up in Haiti, Kesnel and his twin brother, Pierre, enjoyed a rambunctious and fun-loving childhood. In 1977, Kesnel and his siblings migrated to the United States, eventually settling in Mattapan, MA. Kesnel graduated from Hyde Park High school in 1987. Following graduation, he worked in a correctional half-way house until he began his career in computer technology. His passion for computers led him to start his own small computer business.

In addition to being a husband and father to his own children, Kesnel doted on his many nieces and nephews. He played a significant role in their up bringing. He instructed them, disciplined them, and encouraged them to be proud of who they are, especially being Haitian. Together, Kesnel and Magdala were instrumental in shaping the lives of many of his nieces and nephews.
