Jessie & Rose were our neighbors at the Camp Allen Navy Housing in Norfolk, VA in the 1970's. Jessie is the godfather of our oldest son Arnold. When Arnold was baptized, Jessie & Rose volunteered to cook for the celebration party because back then there were no Filipino restaurants in the area where you could order food from or entertain guests. We shared vegetables that we harvested from our backyard gardens. Aileen and Neil were in grade school then. We remember Jessie was noted for telling jokes during gatherings and we always wanted him to be with us during picnics and parties. We will surely miss his company.

Dad, my heart is empty without you. I am at a lost for words over your loss, but I know inside I will always embrace your selflessness and the unconditional love you gave me when at times I may not have deserved it. I remember as a young boy when Mom, Aileen and I would see you off for WestPac while you were in the Navy and you would be gone 6 months at a time. I was always so excited for your return cause you always had a big box of chocolates for me! It was those simple things you did for me that made me feel special. You have always provided our family with immense love and you will be missed. Sometimes I look back on my days when I was a teenager and I can’t believe how much I may have put you though. Many worrisome nights and maybe even some sleepless nights. But Dad, you never gave up on me! I will always love you for that. You allowed me to make mistakes and was never critical of me. My memories of you are the importance of family. Despite the struggles & sacrifices you made to give us all a better future, you remained humble and never expected anything in return. Any man could be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad. And because of you, I am blessed to have been part of your life and to be your son. I will always hold you close in my heart and embrace your spirit with unconditional love as you did for me as a little boy. I promise to protect and take care of Mom and Aileen as you did. You can smile now cause you’re with the Angels in heaven. I love you Dad! Rest in Paradise.

My Papa was always a very kind and generous man and a great cook of course. I remember the times when I walked into their house and asked him what that good smell was.....it was his delicious food! I loved hearing his adventures of being in the navy and when he lived in the Philippines. Even though I won’t be able to see him for awhile he will always be remembered in the hearts of the Jimenez family🥰. I will definitely miss your cooking and singing. We love you so much! Love Malia ❤️❤️😘

Jessie wasn't a relative. My relations with him had only been by affiliation, my daughter Vivian having married his brother Willie. But Jessie became more than just a relative to me. He and his wife Rosie, became my and my late husband's friends. So much so that were privileged to have been chosen as sponsors, ninang and ninong, during their 40th wedding anniversary. There are many things we will miss about Jessie: his quiet but strong presence, his superb culinary skills, his fatherly advice not only to his children but also to his siblings.

The Jimenez family has lost a father, a stalwart figure of leadership. Many of us have lost a friend. But let us rest in the thought that Jessie is in much better hands now, the Best, in fact. He is with our Lord. And I'm sure my husband Pete will be very glad to embrace his inaanak in heaven. Rest well now, dear Jessie. Rest well. Our love to you and my prayers for the bereaved family.

In behalf of the Salud family we would like to thank you Uncle Jesse for the loving kindness that you showed to me and my family. My best memories of you is when you would always put time to take us places when we are vacationing in San Diego and would often prepare food for us to eat every morning, lunch and dinner. You never get tired serving your family and other people. We love you and you will surely be missed. But we know that we will see each other again in the presence of our Creator and Father God.

Uncle Jessie......the Jimenez and Resurreccion family will forever be thankful to you for all the sacrifices you have made in the name of our families. As the patriarch of the family you have instilled pride, selfessness, confidence and most of all responsibility into all of your siblings, nieces, nephews and grandchildren. And for that we are forever grateful. May your gentle soul and generous heart rest in peace! We will miss your company, laughter, stories, and definitely your food! We love and miss you ❤️

Kuya Jessie is the only person I know to pick family first and always over himself. He willingly took over the role of father to his 10 siblings and made sure to take care all of us even if it meant forgoing his own health and well-being. Without a selfish bone in his body and the softest of hearts, his word was final and our entire family was at his beck and call.

Thank you, Kuya Jessie, for everything that you have done for me and my family. You were always there to guide me through all of my struggles. With you I entrust my burdens, I know you will carry them and help me, through your reunion with God. Enjoy your eternal peace, Kuya. This is not my goodbye, but instead a "see you later!" Your legacy will remain and I will never forget the memories we shared. You are a brother beyond compare!

Our dear beloved brother, Jessie, you will always be remembered how a great brother that you are. We know for sure we will miss you very much as we all will. Thank you so much for everything that you have done most especially your help after our father passed. You were always there to lend a helping hand in so many ways and most importantly in bringing our mother and all our siblings to the United States. We love you and miss you! Of all sad things we may endure, the saddest is in saying 'farewell brother.'
