OBITUARY

Jesus Federico Varela

June 12, 1942November 20, 2019

Jesus (Jess / Chuy) passed away in Sacramento, California, surrounded by family. Jesus loved people and his smile could light up a room. He touched many lives with his humor, generosity and optimistic outlook on life and stories.

Jesus was born in Jerome, Arizona to Jesus & Cruz Varela. He was the second of eight children. The Varela Family were longtime residents of San Francisco. In 1971, Jesus moved to San Jose where he would continue his career at Langendorf Bakery. He was a proud member of the Bakers Local Union #24 for over 30 years. After retiring, he held many part time jobs. His most recent position at West Wind, as an attendant at the Capitol Flea Market, gave him much joy. He was able to interact with his co-workers and many friends. Jesus loved being around people, joking, laughing and telling stories.

Jesus is survived by his sister Gloria Breaux and his four children, Penny (Elliot) Sands, Valerie (Jesse Sr.) Perez, Gail (Gerald) Weathers, Jesus M. Varela. Jesus is also survived by his grandchildren: Calida, Tamara, Steven, Jesse Jr., Clayton, Tyler, Beatrice, Victoria & Anika;10 great-grandchildren; nephews & nieces. Jesus was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Beatrice Varela, and his longtime partner, Carolyn Guzman.
