Jesus, the son of Catarino and Hermelinda Gallegos, was born in Mezquital Durango, Mexico, on June 25, 1954. Jesus went to work as a young man for Breckenridge Exploration doing seismic work. He worked in the oil field industry until his health would not allow him any longer. He loved animals of all kinds and found great joy in taking care of them. Jesus enjoyed fishing and gardening. He would advise others on how best to do a garden. Like any decent fisherman, he had his fishing stories. He loved to spend his spare time fishing with loved ones.

Jesus was preceded in death by his parents.
