Jesus Rodriguez III

Jesus Rodriguez III always called Mijo, was born and raised in Avondale, AZ, has passed away Sept 5, 2020.
Mijo had a huge heart that led him to move mountains for his family and friends. His love of music and the poetry of the words was passed on to his family and friends whom he always had a new song for them to listen and understand. His insightfulness was one of a kind that allowed his creativity to always flow in everything he did.
He loved to BBQ and created his own rubs and sauces that he would make for anyone who asked especially during football season when his Cowboys were on TV. He loved getting his family together especially his nieces and nephews just to play with them all. Always organizing some event for everyone whether that was birthdays, holidays, or just a Sunday in the park. Mijo always wanted his family together laughing and having a great time. He embodied the word family with everything he did in his life and everything he achieved in his life was for the benefit and prosperity of his family.
Words cannot perfectly describe who he was nor can they convey the loss to the family and his friends. There will never be a time he is not missed, but the wonderful memories of having him in our lives for this short time will always warm our hearts and send a laugh or two. We love you Mijo and take comfort in you being with Mine and Lalo. Thank you for all that you have done for us all.

    Jesus was a wonderful addition to our family. He was charming, kind, thoughtful, a family Man, funny, a big time prankster and generous, to a fault. He was the truest foundation to the Rodriguez family. He will be greatly missed, by one and all, who had the pleasure of knowing him.
