Jean Juliet 
(1886 – 1913 died?)

French woman, V.A. Rusanov. He was familiar with her four years of study at the Sorbonne University. After graduating from the course of the natural faculty, she was preparing a thesis in geology for a doctorate in science and at the same time practicing medicine, preparing to become a doctor. Rusanov wrote to his mother: “... Fate gave me a very smart, beautiful and young Frenchwoman, her name is Juliette Jean ... She is well brought up, knows music, understands painting and knows foreign languages, especially good English. For all that, she is not at all spoiled and knows how to work ... To have such a wife is happiness, which is not always and not everyone can fall to the lot ... I know that she will be a good wife and mother ... Her knowledge is highly useful and necessary for me ... The scientific importance of our union is invaluable, enormous".  A physician and a geologist by training, Juliette Jean was not only interested in Rusanov’s arctic campaign, but also fully shared his plans for the future. She persuaded Rusanov to take her with her on an expedition on "Hercules". In St. Petersburg, Rusanov did not meet any objections to her participation in the expedition to Spitsbergen. 
The message about the disappearance of the expedition Rusanov hard reflected on her loved ones. Juliette's father, having lost hope of seeing his daughter, fell seriously ill and died in December 1913.
