Jesus was a stubborn man who enjoyed collecting all things, always had the right tool even if we didn’t need it. He enjoyed keeping his culture alive, eating at Los Novios for his weekend manudo, caring for others no matter the situation and cruising main to hold up the traffic. We are grateful for the long journey he made to create the opportunity for his wife and children to become successful. He worked hard and was dedicated to teaching the values of discipline, respect and to always have the last word! Jesus took the knowledge gained from serving in the Mexican Military to drive his family to have strong work ethic. He also worked at Glovers and Longhorn for many years where he developed many friendships that will be cherished forever.
