Jesus “Jesse” Rodriguez, 73, passed away Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018. He is preceded in death by his parents, Severo and Porfiria Rodriguez; brother, Jose Rodriguez; and sister, Maria de Jesusa Casillas.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughters, Linda Meyers and husband, Randy, Diana Rodriguez and husband, Ricky Garcia, Alma Paez and husband, Martin, Esmeralda Montes and husband, Raul; sister, Francis Ybarra; 12 grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and a host of other family and dear friends.
Jesse was a loving and dedicated grandfather. He cherished every moment he got to spend with his family. His professional achievement came secondary to his loved ones. Even his sons-in-law were the sons he never had. Jesse was an amazing person and could always find a way to help people. He was a generous man who would give the shirt off his back to strangers in need. Jesse was wise and intelligent in his way. There was nothing he couldn’t figure out how to fix. He enjoyed making people laugh and teaching through his stories. Jesse loved working on cars and tinkering. He spent his free time watching wrestling and western movies (especially John Wayne, Roy Rogers, and Audie Murphy) with his family. His favorite music was by Antonio Aguilar, Vincente Fernandez, and Pedro Infante, Jr. Jesse will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
In lieu flowers, the family is asking for donations to American Heart Association or American Cancer Society.
