Chuy was a good friend in high school. I will always remember the time he told me he knew karate, I of course expressed my doubt. Big mistake, a second later I was laying on the floor and stood above me was Chuy in a full karate pose. I never doubted him again. Rest in peace and Godspeed my friend.

We shared 18 years of friendship from that first moment on we shared fun times, lots of laughs and memories. The love for baseball, your son, and wonderful talks. Jesse, you were my daughter’s crush at 4 years old. You became part of our family. Going out and playing golf with Albert and his friends; to going golfing with Christian and Andrea.
You loved life, your family, but you also loved your friends. My dear friend Rest In Peace, free from pain and suffering. You are now with Mrs. Margaret and your loved ones. You will be greatly missed.
To the family may God grant you peace, comfort and strength. Our sincere condolences.

We lost a good man with Jesse’s passing. Jesse’s love and pride of his son is one of his qualities that always come to mind when I think of him. So many great memories and fun though our 18 year friendship. He really was always there to lend anyone a helping hand. I was just sharing the story of Jesse standing there wearing my son’s Boy Scout sash while I hot glued on his patches for his review. Jesse was standing there, so patient and just laughing at me.

I can imagine Jesse in heaven meeting up with our Margarita catching up and David Booth waiting to get a word in. My friend, you are missed and will be thought of often by many. Love you.

Thank you!!
We shared 24 years of memories and a wonderful son to be proud of.
I was looking at our old photographs.
Younger faces I see.
Of brighter days and brighter smiles.
Such a long time ago, it seems.
Of Disneylands, and oceans blues.
Of distant lands and foreign soils.
The fishing trips, the camping fires.
The pets; the puppies and the python.
The cat we had, for a minute or two.
The first communion, the second house.
The run to first base and the almost home run.
Memories to last a lifetime.
May you rest in peace.

Jesse was an excellent employee and a solid citizen. He had no problem taking on any new task. I guess God needed an awesome IT guy in heaven. God rest his soul. He didn't deserve this...

I'm glad to have known Chuy. I played basketball at his house when we were younger. I remember his high school graduation party. That was the 1st time I had chicken mole. and my wife and I were able to attend his wedding reception. He had a gentle soul and a calm demeanor.
My heart goes out to his family in their time of loss.
God be with you all!!
