Jesus “Jesse” Gonzalez Jr., 49, entered into peace Wednesday, July 7, 2021, in Brownsville, Texas, at home.
Jesse was born on May 22, 1972, son of Jesus Gonzalez Sr. and Maria Luisa Gonzalez. He married Claudia Estela August 1996. He was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, and friend, entered into eternal rest at his residence surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Richmond, Texas.
Jesse was beloved near and far. He always lit up a room, made everyone laugh or smile, and was willing to go the extra mile to help anyone and everyone. He was a devoted family man that never hesitated to give a helping hand to anyone in need, even when it meant giving his last dollar or taco. He never met a stranger in his lifetime, but instead always made new friendships along the way. Jesse’s legacy has taught us to never miss an opportunity to pay it forward.
