A funeral Mass for Jesus Aguilera, Jr., 16, took place Friday, Aug. 2, 2019 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Mexia. Fr. Jose Marin officiated. Interment followed the services at Mexia Cemetery.

Visitation was Thursday at Bowers Funeral Home in Teague.

Jesus passed away Saturday, July 27, 2019 at Baylor Scott & White in Waco.

Jesus was born November 7, 2002 in Waco to parents Jesus Sr. and Gloria Aguilera.

He was a student at Teague High School, Class of 2021 where he was active in various activities. Jesus was in the band and loved to play basketball, football and tennis.

He also enjoyed playing video games. Jesus was a playful; sweet kid with the perfect smile and deepest dimples.

He loved to joke around and kept a smile on everyone’s face. Jesus had a way of lifting people up when they were down; he might have been shy when first meeting him but when he warmed up to you, he was a hand full.

He loved his family and friends, and he loved to eat and loved to sleep. His biggest dream was to join the United States Air Force.

He is survived by his parents, Jesus Sr. and Gloria Aguilera; five siblings, Erika Aguilera, Mary Aguilera, Lizette Aguilera, Jose Aguilera, and Alondra Aguilera; one nephew, Adrian Espinoza; three aunts, Ma Cruz Aguilera, Juana Aguilera, and Josefina Aguilera; two uncles, Aristeo Valladolid, and Pedro Zuniga; god parents, Abel Salazar and Laura Guerrero; his cousins, Lucia Dominguez, Veronica Zuniga, Nora Valladolid, and Lupita Arias; very special friends, Michelle Moreno and Ashley Perez; and a host of other relatives and friends.

The Aguilera Family would like to express their gratitude to Madison Bragg, Ethan Hullum and the Class of 2021 for organizing the balloon release in Jesus’s memory.
