    My deepest condolences to all the Camarena family, I have nice memories from my childhood and early teenage years in La Misa Sonora MEX when they used to come over to visit their relatives, Susy and I were very closed and Tia Panchita always lived having them over, that’s when Jesse started to pick up more on Spanish-language.
    May he rest in peace with the lord 🙏🏻

    Until we meet again brother . It was a sincere honor serving together at Fort Bragg. Lots of laughs and good times. God Bless amigo 🙏🏾

  • I’m saddened beyond words to hear of Jesse’s passing. Jesse and few of his Army/82 d Airborne brothers were planning on a small reunion this coming May on Ft Bragg. I definitely was looking forward to seeing Jesse after almost 28 years. My prayers are with him and his family and friend’s

    God bless my friend…

  • Love you my brother Jesse. My oldest friend. I remember going to the movies with you in 6th grade and your mother jumping in the back seat of my father’s car to comb your hair before we left. When we were 17 I remember you showing up at my house on Parent’s house Saturday morning tapping on my window saying “let’s go to Mexico”. I am so glad I went, we had such an adventure that time in your hot rod car in Mexico.

  • *showing up at my Parent’s house. I was never as clever, witty or wrote as good as you. In recent times I will miss your dad jokes and your wisdom.

  • Strike Hold…First to Fire!

    RIP Jesse

  • Cuando el dolor del alma paraliza el corazón y la mente es el único sendero le pertenece a dios y hay que caminarlo para encontrar la paz
    El nacimiento no es el principio y la muerte no es el final, Dios hoy te recibirá tu alma con la máxima expresión de amor en el paraiso
    Descanse en Paz! 🙏
    Jesús Ramón Camarena Jr.
    Happy birthday hasta el cielo
    Te voy a extrañar hasta la eternidad! 💔
    Un abrazo a sus familiares en tan lamentable perdida
