Bring Jesse Home



On December 1, 2017, Jesse Macias passed away due to complications from Multiple Sclerosis ("MS"). He was forty five years old. In his last moments, he was surrounded by his loving family -- his daughter Jenna, his sister Jenny, his brother in law Eden, his parents Alejandrina and Jesus, and his former wife Jyme.

In 2003, Jesse began to feel ill but it was not until late 2009 that he was diagnosed with progressive MS. In 2005, Jesse and his parents moved to Arizona. His devoted parents became his primary caretakers as his mobility decreased.

The distance between California and Arizona proved difficult for Jesse's relationship with his children but as they grew older, they developed a special bond. Jesse looked forward to his children's visits to Arizona. The day Justin graduated from the United States Marine Corps in San Diego, Jesse was present despite his failing health. He was proud of his son and they video chatted often during Justin's tour in Afghanistan. Jesse loved his daughter Jenna and he was proud of how kind, loving, giving, and strong she had become. When Jenna entered his room, his eyes lit up and he never stopped smiling.

Jesse grew up in California after immigrating from Mexico. He loved being with friends and family and spending time on the cliffs of San Pedro and Palos Verdes. He enjoyed having bonfires, barbequing carne asada, and working on his 1966 Mustang and 1965 Notchback Volkswagen.

It was Jesse's dream to return to California and we want to bring him home. To honor him, we would like to have him rest eternally in Palos Verdes, where he loved to explore and eat pizza.

Any monetary help would be appreciated to help the Macias family with the memorial and burial arrangements.
