Jesse Lopez Jr., 29, passed away on Tuesday, June 26, 2018. Jesse was born November 16, 1988 in San Antonio, Texas to Jesse and Sandra Lopez. He was a graduate of John Marshall High School. Jesse was a natural artist with anything he showed interest in including cooking, drawing, tattooing and music. He loved his many pets (dogs Oscar, Zoe, and Mamas; his new cat Mr. Kitty; his pet snake Von; and his first pet fish One-eyed Jack) and the pets of his family and friends. Jesse discovered his love of drawing at an early age while he drew on walls and colored furniture with his mother's fingernail polish. He loved sharks and dinosaurs, eating crawdads and sushi, and watching scary movies and Star Wars. Jesse loved many things but his passion was music, specifically his guitar. Without ever taking any formal lessons, he taught himself how to play by just listening to the music. He was the lead guitarist for Aggravator and played guitar for Black Jackal. As a struggling musician he was creatively resourceful using his passion for music to see different parts of the world. Jesse and his Aggravator band mates toured the west coast all the way up to Seattle, Washington and appeared at the Full Terror Assault Festival at Cave In Rock, Illinois. Internationally, they toured Scandinavia with appearances at Inferno Metal Festival in Oslo, Norway and Muskelrock Festival in Alvesta, Sweden. With Black Jackal, Jesse and his band mates played all over his home state of Texas. Jesse is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Tomás C. and Luz S. Lopez; maternal grandparents Onofre and Ninfa Guerra; and Chris Martinez (cousin). Jesse is survived by his parents Jesse Sr. and Sandra Lopez; his sister, Jessica M. Lopez; his niece, Isabella Herrera; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; and his partner Ariel Correa and her son Teddy. Jesse was a son, a brother, an uncle, a nephew, a cousin, a friend and will be missed by many.

A Memorial service for Jesse will be held on Saturday, July 7, 2018 starting at 3:00pm at Porter Loring Mortuary, 1101 McCullough Ave, San Antonio, Texas 78212.
