Jesus “Jesse” Ceja

Jesus “Jesse” Ceja, 44, of Brentwood died unexpectedly on Sept. 15, 2018, at his home.

Jesse is survived by his wife, Stacy, of 13 years and their three sons, Niko (11), Santino (9) and Demarco (5); his parents, Jesus and Evangelina Ceja; brother, Javier Ceja; sisters, Esther Guzman and Evangelina Morfin; and nephew and nieces, goddaughters and extended family. Jesse was a loving and giving father, husband, son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew, Nino and friend to everyone.

Jesse, more than anything, loved to spend time with his wife and boys and to be around his family and friends. He brought joy and laughter to everyone no matter the time or place. He had an infectious smile and personality that was loved by all. He enjoyed having everyone over to cook or barbecue for and enjoy drinks and laughter. His boys’ birthday parties could never be at a Pump It Up type of place because that would mean there was a time limit, and he never wanted to have a limited time with his friends and family.

He had the most caring heart and would do anything for anyone, even though he might joke and say that is going to cost you two cases! Jesse loved going camping, and he loved his Raiders, but he loved nothing more than his wife and boys.

Jesse’s life was cut too short here on Earth, and even though he is now our guardian angel, his presence will be forever missed by all.

Services will be held on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 11 a.m., at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 500 Fairview Ave., Brentwood.
