It happened Saturday at the 7-Eleven store on 8th Avenue and 39th Street.
According to police, before Jacques punched the worker, he yelled, "You Chinese (expletive)!" and then ran off.
The victim suffered bruising and a small cut to his left eye. He refused medical attention.
The assault was being investigated by the NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force.
It's the latest in a rash of attacks in New York City and across the country against people of Asian descent.
According to police, there have been at least 33 anti-Asian hate crimes in New York City already this year.
In one, last Tuesday, police say a man yelled anti-Asian slurs at a 44-year-old woman and her three children, spitting at her and kicking her cellphone off a subway train.
