Another year has passed and his influence is still very present in our every day lives. For some reason he was chosen to leave us and perhaps one day we will understand. But as for now, we can't accept his leaving. Love you in your heavenly home and hope that you are resting in peace until you meet your loved ones once again.

Remembering today all the fun filled antics you and Bill did to make everyone laugh. You are still sorely missed today and will be for all the tomorrows.

A wonderful, talented, funny, loving, giving, handsome nephew, cousin, child, brother, and friend was taken way too soon. But, he will never be forgotten for the strength and love that he had for his children, and his close family, especially his cousin in craziness, Bill. I hope that those who still mourn him, know that he is watching out for you.

It's now been years since I have seen Norma and the Garcia clan. I vividly remember Norma always talking about Jesse's baseball accomplishments. It was easy to recognize the love and pride she had in sharing those stories. It is the most tragic experience a parent can have in outliving a child. Not many words that can express my deepest sympathy and sorrow. I hope that the love and memories can help you thru these times. If at any point you need to talk to someone, Linda and I will always be available. With Love and Peace, Bob.

This is a hard one to swallow, but God has his reasons. At least you are in good company and your family can be assured that you will always be there for them. One of my favorite people in the world. Jesse Garcia cannot be duplicated. Thanks for everything you've done for me and all the nonstop hilarious moments. West Tampa took a big hit. God bless and all the peace and strength to your family.

Tio I don't think I'll ever be able to accept that you're gone. Everytime I look at a picture of you, my mind floods with love and memories. It's a blessing and also torment cause I want to see you so badly and hear your voice one more time. You meant so much to me. You made my life that much better. I remember when I was 13 and you bought me that ken Griffey glove of the year. I was so excited I didn't even want to wait till it was broken in to use it. I don't know if I'll ever be able to fill this hole in my heart. I don't know if I ever want to. I love you Tio rip you deserve it love B

Jesse,

Remember that the light will always shine bright at the end of the path where you will be welcomed and have a place to rest until we are all together again. 

Love,

Jesse,
Taken from this earth so soon...leaving your loved ones behind, especially your two beautiful daughters. Your kindred spirit will live on through them. 
Jesse was a man of charm, charisma, athleticism, but foremost a family man. As a coach, he touched many of our boys' lives. His infectious energy and optimism were always evident on the field. He wanted the boys to have fun and build team camaraderie.
Jesse, you gave of yourself selflessly and impacted a multitude of Georgia's youth with your patience, compassion and enviable skill set.
RIP, friend....remembering you...Adam & Sonia ⚾️

The best thing that I can say about Jesse is that he made a great impact in my life and my son's life and I am truly honored to know him. He was a man you just couldn't help but love and respect. A true friend and brother. I will always hold his memory close to my heart. Rest in peace my friend.

Catholic Connection

Shared by Laura Murphy on April 28, 2016

Jesse has always been an instrument for good. Many do not know that over 30 years ago, it was Jesse that brought me to the Catholic Church. I started to go to meetings with him because he was going to be baptized, it was at Incarnation Church, in Town N’ Country, Florida.  After attending several weeks of preparation, there was an issue with God Parents and Jesse was hurt and disheartened and stopped attending, but I stayed.  In fact my confirmation name is Jesse.  After that I then sponsored two more family members through the RCIA path.  Like I said, he was an instrument in changing lives and he just never understood how much.
