Jimmie i will always remember your joking days when we went to high school. Never a dull day without you. You were truly loved and you will be sorely missed now that you are gone. But one thing is for sure you will never be forgotten. RIP my friend Jo R Davis

My favorite memory of Mister J is the time I wreck my car in high school and showed up to the Resendez house in a panic. I was on the verge of tears.
Mister J said “ don’t worry Meja. I’ll fix this right up. It will be good as new”. He then proceeded to pull out a roll of duct tape and piece my front end back together. I drove my car like that for the next 6months. When I would see him he would say “ how is my Mexican ingenuity holding up? “
He wasn’t always around during our high school years because he worked so much. But, he was there when I needed him and that’s what matter most.
Rest easy Cap!
