Born 1957 in Salt Lake City, Utah, American model, actor and dancer Sterling St. Jacques was the adopted son of actor Raymond St. Jacques. He had bit parts in films such as Eyes of Laura Mars (1978) with Faye Dunaway, Dinah East (1970) and the Italian movie Sistemo l’America e torno (1974).

Together, Sterling and model Pat Cleveland were regulars at Studio 54. Although they appeared in public as a couple, and were briefly engaged, Sterling was widely known to be gay.
In the 1980s, Sterling moved to Europe to try and become a nightclub DJ and advance his modeling career. Soon after, he claimed to the press he was broke and was thinking of opening a dance studio in Manhattan. This idea never came to fruition and instead he regularly appeared in both high-end and low-brow magazines and even performed Italo disco.
St. Jacques contracted AIDS and died in 1984 in New York City, not knowing who gave it to him.
