Adams was a centre back during his playing days.
The defender spent his entire career in France, playing for Nimes, Nice, Paris Saint-Germain, Mulhouse, and Chalon, among others.
Adams married Bernadette in April 1969, and the couple has two kids together, Laurent and Frederic.
While studying and training for a youth coaching position in Dijon, Adams tore a tendon in his leg.
He then traveled to Lyon for treatment. On March 17, 1982, he was admitted to Lyon's Edouard Herriot Hospital.
The hospital personnel happened to be on strike on the day of the appointment. An anesthetist and a trainee had to keep an eye on Jean. Several mistakes were committed, the majority of which the two admitted to the court.
He developed a bronchospasm (moderate to severe trouble breathing) as a result of an anaesthetic error, depriving his brain of oxygen and causing him to lapse into a coma.
