Jaime was a precious soul gone too soon. He was a fighter! There was not one thing that held him back. With everything he went through, he always did it with a smile. He always pushed himself and was his parent’s and brother’s inspiration. He taught us more and more every day that he was part of our lives. He was so tiny yet had the biggest heart and the fight of a warrior. His nurse, Rose would say that he was built like a Greek God! He could light up a room with those big beautiful eyes and contagious smile. Although he had no voice with which to communicate, he never had a problem letting you know what he wanted! He enjoyed spending time with his baby cousins and he absolutely loved animals. He adored his big brother and his face would light up whenever he entered the room.
He was preceded in death by: grandmother, Priscilla Ann Ontiveros; grandfather “Papo” Patricio E. Sena, Sr.; four uncles, Israel W. Hinojos, Mike Hinojos, Jr., Javier Ontiveros and Pedro Ontiveros; two aunts, Mary Orosco and Olga Najera; great grandmother, Cruz Hinojos; great grandpa, Mike Hinojos, Sr. and special cousin, Jahnessa Ontiveros, also age five.
