Jesus Esparza Reyes was born in the city of Chihuahua, Mexico in 1915. He only had the opportunity to finish secondary  school before becoming an apprentice machinist at age 15, working for a gold and silver mining company in central Mexico.  He became a journeyman by the time he was 20 due to this precision machining skills, and the machine shop foreman soon after.  While in secondary school he learned to play basketball and other sports, and became an exceptional basketball player who as an adult was invited to join state select teams that participated in first division national tournaments for almost 12 years while working full-time and eventually raising a family.

After the death of Teresa, with two young children to care for, he remarried in Monterrey, Mexico in last 1946.  There, he became the machine shop supervisor for the GE light bulb factory.  By then, he had learned on his own engineering drawing, Algebra and Trigonometry which he used to design and fabricate prototype, high precision machine parts.  By 1954, his family included six children. In search for better education and economic opportunities for himself and his children, he immigrated to the U.S. and worked in machine shops in Los Angeles, Houston and eventually San Antonio. In 1955, with all the required immigration visas, he brought his family to San Antonio. By 1960, after two additional children were born in San Antonio, the rest of the family applied and was granted U.S. citizenship.  Soon after, he began his career as a civil servant machinist at Kelly AFB where he worked for 22 years. While at Kelly, he built the reputation as the best machinist on base. He received numerous awards and commendations for his suggestions that improved the precision machining of parts, some weighing up to a ton, for many USAF aircraft including the B-52, B-58, C-141 and C-5. At his retirement, he was presented a commendation from President Carter. Jesus was called to the Lord in March 2014, just short of his 99th birthday, leaving behind 16 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren.
