Tessie was born and raised in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines and began her High school at Holy Angel University. She immigrated to the United States in 1973. Tessie continued her high school education in San Francisco, California where the school faculty realized her academic level was much higher than her age and advanced her to her senior year where she graduated.
Tessie was one of nine children born to the late Pepito Salangsang Eres and Telesfora Paragele Eres. She was also preceded in death by her brother Jesus Eres, and her sister Maria Victoria "Bebek" (Eres) Jesuitas.
In 2000, she married Rolando Jesuitas and they raised two sons Roldan Jesuitas and Ronell Jesuitas.
After a courageous battle for two years with lung cancer, Tessie passed away peacefully at her home. Tessie touched the lives of many people with her smile and generosity, and maintained her trademark sense of humor all the way to the end.
Thank you for being there in the family's time of need. Tessie couldn't have asked for more from her family and friends.
Rest in Paradise, Tessie.
Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on Saturday, July 29, 2017 from 12:30pm-6:30pm.
