Jesus was born on December 28, 1941 in Tajique, New Mexico to Lonesio & Manuelita Sedillo. He grew up in Tajique and spent his life in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He lost most of his hearing at a young age but that never deterred his resolve to accomplish many things in life. Through the course of his life, he demonstrated a hard work ethic and worked in various industries, often receiving accolades for his dedication. He recently retired at the age of 79, further attesting to his determination and endurance.
Jesus enjoyed playing the guitar, drums, studying the Bible, spending time with family, and eating Huevos Rancheros. He was a generous, witty and dedicated man who loved God & Jesus Christ and was passionate about serving God’s children in his community. He was an active and dedicated member of his church, Crossroads of Albuquerque. He often volunteered at his church’s donation center.
The family would like to thank the staff at UNM and Presbyterian hospitals for their care and dedication. They would also like to thank the staff at Reflections Funerals & Life Celebrations/Salazar Funeral Homes & Crematory and Mount Calvary Cemetery. Special thanks to Pastor Tom Pennington, his wife, and the congregation of Crossroads of Albuquerque for their love and support.
