  1. Jesus was known to the Espinoza family in California as Chuco, I remember our aunt pressing his greens to perfection, I sure enjoyed taking rides in his Camaro, as a kid that was a thrill , thanks for the rides especially for your service, until we meet again✌️❤️

  2. I had the privilege to work with Jesse in support of his operations at Kinder Morgan. He was always positive, encouraging, straight-forward, honest, and incredibly hard working. He made me and I think many others appreciate being part of a team. He was a good leader and good man. My sincere condolences to family and friends. I pray that Jesse’s life and memory will always bring a sense of joy and gratitude to you.

  3. I’ve known him since he started at Yarborough in the early 60’s. They lived about two miles from us. I remember him walking over one summer day to play with my little brother, but he wasn’t home. Felt so sorry for him and my sister said we should have invited him in and gave him something to drink or something! It didn’t seem to bother him. I can honestly say I never saw him angry or mean, just an around easy going guy. Jesse fly high my friend and bless you for all the good you have done in your sixty some years.

  4. It was a privilege to know and work with Jessie while he was the supervisor at the CIG Lakin Station. Jesse was an excellent leader and someone you could count on to do things right. We were able to over come challenges with his leadership. He always had a great outlook on life and could draw the best out of those around him. I know he will be sorely missed. This country needs more people like this.

  5. A great family man and a great man, period.

    Condolences to Deanna, the kids, grandkids and siblings.

    Semper fi, Jesse.

I have a lot of fond memories of him from when he was the supervisor of our crew. There was never a dull moment. Great guy and a great boss. I am truly sorry for your family’s loss.

  8. Life is a fragile gift and Jesse was a gift to our family. He will be forever remembered for his quick smile and devotion to his family. Keep heavens doors open, Jesse, and we’ll see you again one day. Until then, you will be sadly missed.

  9. i was pleased to have known Jesse for a few years and
    Rachelle and i had the pleasure of working with him during a Kinder Morgan “Job Fair” held at USMC Camp Pendleton, Oceanside, CA….i was impressed with his “spirit de corp” that he shared with his fellow Marines, and was instrumental in “recruiting” several Marines to join the Kinder Morgan Team…..
