Obituary of Jesus Covarrubias
Jesus Covarrubias, 84, of Dallas, Texas passed away on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, surrounded by family. Born near Matamoros, Mexico on July 26, 1938 to Felix and Romana (Lopez) Covarrubias, Jesus grew up in Brownsville, Texas with twin brother, Felix, and 7 other siblings. Jesse, or as he was called by those close to him ‘Chuy’, quit school at an early age for migrant work, picking cotton and various crops from Texas to the upper mid-west for over 15 years. Jesse credited this grueling occupation with giving him introduction to pretty, migrant worker, Frances Casas, who became the love of Jesse’s life. Jesse and Frances married on December 24, 1960, settling afterward in Dallas, Texas where they began a family and where Jesse went to work for Marriott Hotels in maintenance & engineering. In over 40 years at Marriott, Jesse rose to position of chief engineer and obtained skills in construction, HVAC, electrical and plumbing – skills he would leverage after-hours and weekends for the rest of his life to help family, friends, neighbors and anyone in need. Jesse had endless energy, an unfailing positive attitude, incomparable “fix it” skills, a heart as big as Texas, and a loving and generous spirit. He loved God, family, doing for others, working on his Chevy truck, the Dallas Cowboys and listening to old-style, country western music. Jesus was predeceased by his father and one sibling. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Frances, his son Javier, grandchildren Alyssia Renea and Jesus Manuel Covarrubias, great-grandchildren Zeza and Raven Renea, in addition to his mother, Romana and 7 siblings.
