Jesus A. Vasquez

Jesus Alcoser Vasquez shed the struggles and trials of this world and was born into eternal life on March 20, 2023.  Jesus “Chuy” was born March 13, 1950, in San Pedro, Coahuila, Mexico, but got out of there as fast as he could to the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave; he was brave, alright, for in 1970, he volunteered to fight the good fight and defend America’s faith and honor in Vietnam as part of the 1st Aviation Brigade.  As part of the 1st Aviation Brigade, our dad fixed helicopters that carried America’s best to the front lines. Upon his honorable discharge from the United States Army, he married “the most beautiful lady he ever met.”  He married Laurentina Trevino who would later be the mother of his children, but not all of them, and that one is the one and only, Joshua Oxenreider, who just recently came into our lives and has brought joy into our dad’s life.

Throughout the years, Jesse or “Chuy” as he was also known as a jack-of-all-trades, and master of only one, and that was being a loving, caring father.  Jesus also enjoyed traveling and enjoyed a strong cup of Taster’s Choice coffee.  He also loved to dance and was the perfect gentleman when he did.

We will miss our dad dearly and there is a void in our heart, but we know that he is reunited in heaven with his dad, Juan Vasquez, his mom, Maria, his brother Luz and sister Juanita, and with the love of his life and mother of his children, in God’s amazing grace.

Left behind to grieve his absence are his children, Juan Jose Rupert Vasquez, Elvira Gonzalez and husband Martin, Angelita Moreno and husband Gabino, Jesus Vasquez, Jr., Andres Elias Vasquez, David Reynaldo Vasquez, and Josh Oxenreider and his lovely wife Porsche; eleven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; sisters, Rafaela Herrera and husband, Gilberto, and Manuela Vasquez, and Maria Lorenza Burgess, and husband Terry; one brother, Guadalupe Rosario Cisneros, as well as many nieces and nephews.

We will miss you dad, you will always be in our hearts, it is with our belief in the hope of heaven that we will see you and mom again.

    Tio, you are special to me . I will miss you. You taught me how to ride a bike, you also taught me how wonderful life is. You could be stubborn but that is what made you unique. I love you,
    You never talked about your Vietnam days but now as I am much older, I understand why. You did so much for us and I admire you much more. I adore you for being such a great Tio. I never told you much.. I love you..Remember me when you get to heaven. Hold on to my little one till I get there.

    I’m so lucky to call you my grandpa, i love you so much and will miss you dearly. As typing this I’m just remembering all the good times we had. I will forever cherish all those memories and share them with the girls. As i grew up i know longer was around much but I knoww you knew how much you mean to me. That last talk i had with you in the hospital just replays in my head over and over . My heart aches…. I know Que ya no estas sufriendo in and out of the hospital. You were so strong even though I know you weren’t doing good you still said your okay and gave me that little side smile. I love you. And my babies will forever love their wonderland grandpa.

    Tio Chuy, I will always remember you and miss the stories you told and the fun we had. My fondest memory was when You and I went to the casino in New Mexico for a couple of days. That was the first casino i had ever been to and we went with just the few dollars we had in our pockets and we split everything down the middle, and while we didnt win any money that weekend we had a blast. Everytime I went to Grandma Juanita’s and you were there, you took the time to say hello and ask about how i was doing and wanted us to enjoy every minute of the day. Everytime I saw you in town, you never hesitated to make sure i was okay and you never missed an oppurtunity to tell us a great story. You always tried to make us all smile and laugh. Even when you were arguing with Grandma Juanita and Tia Manuela, you argued with them like siblings do and it was all to make us laugh. Im going to miss times like those. Tell my Grandma Juanita and Grandpa Ponciano hello, say hi to my Great Grandma Vasquez, and know that you will be missed and that your stories will not be forgotten.

    Deddy you will be greatly missed . I loved so much and I hope I made you proud. I’m gonna miss you and our conversations we would have about football or any sport that was in season. I never thought I would like nascar because it’s a bunch of cars following each other but when saw it together that one time we went to Ruidoso and got snowed in I got hook. That was the last sporting event we saw together too. If I knew that was going to be the last time I saw you I would’ve given you a bigger hug. I miss and love you. I will continue to keep your memories alive as I have with mom. Give her a hug and kiss for me. I might of not made you a grandpa her on earth but I have in heaven dales un abrazo a ellos que no los conosi.


    CHUY, you made home. I know Mom and Juanita were pacing the by the pearly gates waiting your arrival. I can just see them. Big smiles on their faces arms open wide with love and joy. For some of us left behind, Like me brother heart broken, sad, and jet joyful… Your not in pain or sick anymore. I just want to Say THANK YOU, FOR BEING MY BROTHER, FOR THE LAUGHS, TEARS AND THE MEMORIES. And maybe we didn’t say I LOVE YOU much to each other. But, I believe in my heart you love me as much as I LOVE YOU.
