Jesus (J.J.) Perez Jr.

On Saturday, March 11, 2018, Jesus Perez Jr. (J.J.) was called home by the Lord. He was born on October 1, 1989 to parents Jesus Perez Sr. and Graciela Gonzalez. It has broken our hearts to lose him. We are finding comfort in the memories that he left us with. J.J. was a son, brother, fiancé, nephew, cousin, friend and most importantly a father. He had a heart of gold and that was truly expressed in the love he had for his three children Nickolas, Noah, McKinley and fiancé Jaclyn. His world revolved around his little family, especially his children. Practicing and playing baseball with his boys was one of his favorite things to do. He found an immense amount of joy in his little girl. The love that he and Jaclyn had for each other is indescribable. He enjoyed all sports and had his alltime favorite teams the Dallas Cowboys and San Antonio Spurs. In the spring and summer time you would always find him playing softball with friends.
