Jose Humberto Meza was born on September 22, 1989 in Cook County, Illinois. Jose was raised in Chicago where he met his best friends and threw the best basement parties and overprotected his sister. In 2009, Jose and his parents relocated to Rosita, Coahuila, Mexico where he proceeded to scare his mom by popping wheelies on his motorcycle. In 2012, Jose moved to San Antonio to be closer to family, two short years later on one summer day, Cristina tripped and fell into Jose’s life. Jose’s biggest dream was to be a law enforcement officer. In December of 2015, Jose graduated from the San Antonio College Law Enforcement Academy. In July of 2016, Jose began to fulfill his dream and was sworn in as a Llano County Sheriff Deputy. Jose married his wife Cristina Silva on September 16, 2016. In November 2017, Jose became a father to Mia Isabella, the cutest little girl around, and she had him wrapped around her little finger since her first breath. On December 14, 2018, Jose was sworn in as a patrol officer with the City of Burnet Police Department. Jose, Cristina and Mia relocated to Burnet where Mia began attending a new school. Six short months after joining Burnet Police Department, Jose applied for the K-9 handler position and was granted the opportunity to go to work with his best friend, Kuso. Kuso and Jose made the best team and they made many arrests together. Jose is survived by his wife of 4 years, Cristina, his two-year-old daughter, Mia Isabella; his parents Jose and Claudia Meza; his sister Claudia Meza and her husband Omar Hernandez; nephews Xavier and Omar Hernandez, and so many family and friends. Jose was preceded in death by his maternal great-grandmother, Amparo Gonzalez, who spoiled him the most, and several other family members.

My deepest condolences to the Meza family... Jose was such an amazing person, we all grew up together. We didn't see it then, but looking back, he kept us all friends, from Armstrong days well on into High school. Those parties kept our friendships strong, kept us together, those late night walks and talks helped us get through the good, the bad, at times, the ugly... The Damen/Seeley games of cops and robbers, the BBQs. His entire family was and still is always so warm and welcoming. It really was a home away from home. The memories we all share, will keep his spirit alive and keep him forever in our hearts.. God needed an Angel he picked the best one... Rest Easy Meza Meza..

Where do I begin? Growing up I was best friends with his sister Claudia. Their family was my family/home away from home. Often times Jose and I would butt heads, bicker, argue, and debate on things and could never agree to disagree. It kinda makes me laugh looking back at how young and immature we were. However, when push came to shove, he was definitely there for his friends, you could count on him. I remember the countless times I would ditch school, and he'd pick me up and drop me off while I waited for his sister to get home. I lived just on the opposite block behind their house, so I have many, many memories. The countless times he jumped out of a dark corner and scared Claudia, Esther, and I. He had such a goofy, quirky personality, and always had us laughing! I can hear his voice remembering some of his funny sayings and facial expressions. I remember his love for tupac, and was a huge Chicago Cubs fan. He had a nitch for wearing baseball caps, and still does! Some things never change as you get older. He was also very dedicated, motivated and driven. He threw the biggest, and best house parties on the block, hosted the best firework shows. I went on many gatherings and events with their family. Mr. and Mrs. Meza, I wanna thank you for absolutely everything! You've raised a fine young man and I thank you for welcoming me into your home and treating me like family. Jose was surrounded by many friends. He was the one who kept the circle tight. I remember his overprotection of his sister, but needless to say, I believe he was protective of us all. Jose, if I could say I'm sorry for our little arguments, I would. I'm grateful that I've gotten the chance/experience to have called you a friend, most of all family at one point. We all grow up, and sometimes apart. People change, seasons change, but your memories I'll hold onto forever. I'll be praying for your family, but I know you'll be watching over them. You're molded in perfection in Gods hands now, rest.

We were never great friends. We had our issues, but you were a great guy. You were overprotective of your sister and it will be missed. The parties with Hugo were the best things growing up. You'll be missed and my condolences to your family.

“He did his duty & paid the supreme price,
I pray you'll remember his sacrifice,
His life was short, He did his best
God grant Him peace, in His eternal rest”

I grew up with Jose and lost touch throughout high school but we reconnected in our early 20s. He always had the right words to make any situation feel not so bad and was always able to make me laugh. I will remember him fondly. He is and will be missed by many.
