June 6, 1947 - April 6, 2022
Jesus “Chuy” Velasco passed away on April 6, 2022 at the age of 74. He battled serious health conditions over the past few years. The joke was that he was like a cat with 9 lives. He was very strong with a strong will to live. He met the love of his life Juanita, in Tecate, Baja Calif. Mexico. They were married in Tecate and relocated to San Francisco where they started their family. He was a very hard working man, he strived to always provide for his family. He was a role model to his children and taught them the value of hard work and how important family is. He was very protective and had strong beliefs and very vocal about his opinions. Jesus was a very giving, selfless man who would always make himself available to help his children with home improvement projects, automotive repairs, you name it. This was not limited to his children but also his siblings, extended family and friends whenever possible. He loved his grandchildren very much and would make every effort to participate in their school functions, sports activities and birthday celebrations. He loved taking vacations with his wife and children, especially to visit his extended family in Tecate. He also enjoyed taking vacations with his family to his favorite resort in Cancun, MX. He held two to three jobs at a time in his early years, but made a career as a roofer and truck driver. He was a truck driver who was VERY proud of his Class A license. He retired at the age of 55 and enjoyed golfing in his free time. He enjoyed golf so much, that he collected second hand and vintage golf clubs to the point where he had collected at least 40 sets of clubs. He also joined the Tijuana Christian Mission and traveled with them. He donated his time, labor and use of his truck and trailer to haul materials and helped build homes for those less fortunate. There is no doubt that he loved his family very much although he may not have always expressed himself with words. He showed it through his actions and willingness to always be there to help no matter what the ask was. We will all miss you very much.
