Jesse Charles Gonzales

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving husband, father, brother and friend, Jesse Charles Gonzales. Jesse went home to be with our Lord on Sunday, March 10, 2024, in Amarillo, Texas, at the age of 67.

Services will be at 10:00 AM, Friday, March 15, 2024, at Commanche Trail Church of Christ, 2700 SE 34


Ave, Amarillo, TX 79103, with Joe Tindall officiating.

Jesse was born October 19, 1956, in Tucumcari, NM to Charlie and Kathy Gonzales. The family moved to Amarillo, Texas in 1967, where Jesse finished growing up. He married his wife, Cindy, on November 14, 1975. They were married for 48 years and had one son, Christopher.

Jesse had a long career of 33 years with the City of Amarillo, retiring in 2008 at the age of 51. His hobbies included genealogy, tracing his family tree back to the early 16th century. He had a love for classic cars, rebuilding them with his son, and a passion for his 1968 Chevrolet Camaro.​

Jesse is well known among his family and friends for his quick wit and humor. In Jesse’s own words “you know, people may not remember things you said or even things you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel. I hope I never made someone in my family feel bad. That’s it, Jesse”. He will be sorely missed by us all.

Jesse was preceded in death by his mother, father, and two brothers, Jimmy and Allen.

His survivors include his wife, Cindy; his son, Christopher and wife Kendra; brothers, Robert Gonzales and wife Danielle and Alex Gonzales and wife Ina; sister in law, Teresa Gonzales; sisters, Betty Jean Gonzales and Diana Jimenez all of Amarillo, and sisters, Angie Vidaña and husband Antonio of Clovis, NM; Mary Helen Castillo of North Hills, CA; and Brenda Ballard and husband Mel of Aledo, TX; and his life-long friend, Joe Geisler and wife Lisa of Houston, TX.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place • Memphis, TN 38105.
