Jesus Fernandez was a loving and caring father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend with a big heart. Two of his passions were riding his motorcycle and fixing up old Mustangs. On August 29, 2004, after a family gathering, Jesus left on his bike and was involved in an accident that led to his death. He had never shared with his family his opinion about organ donation, but when presented with the opportunity they knew Jesus would have done anything to help others. He became an organ donor and has brought healing and joy to many families.
Jesus Fernandez was a loving and caring father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend with a big heart. Some people knew him as "Chuy," others as "Zues." But no matter what the nickname, he commanded admiration and respect. Throughout his life, he was always willing to help anyone in need regardless if he knew them or not, and he liked to mentor others. He was also very dedicated to his family, especially to his two little girls Ivy and Mia.
Jesus loved to exercise, eat healthy, and keep busy; he didn't enjoy sitting around doing nothing. When he was not with his family, he was with friends talking about his two favorite interests: cars – specifically Mustangs – and motorcycles. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle and had a passion for fixing up old Mustangs.
On August 29, 2004, Jesus was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident after leaving a family gathering at his aunt's house. He was put on life support, but as time progressed, his doctors informed his family that he was brain dead.
When asked if they would donate his organs, Jesus' family had no idea what his wishes would have been. But because he was always so giving and willing to help anyone in need, they decided he would have loved to take advantage of the opportunity. This year marks the eighth year anniversary of Jesus' passing and his family is very proud to know that he helped save other people's lives.
