Jesus Rodriguez Hernandez

February 10, 1945 — November 7, 2023

Mount Dora


Jesus Rodriguez Hernandez, fondly known as Don Chuy, embarked on his final journey on November 7, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love, compassion, and an indomitable spirit. Born on February 10, 1945, in the serene town of La Brisa, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, he brought joy and warmth into the lives of all those fortunate enough to know him.


In pursuit of a better life for himself and his loved ones, Jesus made the courageous decision to move to Central Florida in 1983. He embraced the opportunities that awaited him in this new land with unwavering determination and worked hard to provide for his family. In 1995, Jesus purchased twenty-plus acres of land in Mount Dora where he established his cherished home surrounded by his children.


A man of many talents and passions, Jesus excelled in various aspects of life. His boundless generosity knew no bounds as he extended a helping hand to anyone in need. A stranger was merely a friend he had not yet met. It was this spirit that endeared him to all who had the privilege of crossing paths with him.


Recognizable by his distinctive style, Jesus could always be found sporting cowboy boots paired with a sombrero and a vibrant red bandana adorning his neck. Adding a touch of whimsy were peacock feathers that danced gracefully from his hat. This charismatic attire was a testament to his lively spirit and zest for life.


Jesus's love for animals knew no bounds. Over the years, he nurtured an enchanting menagerie that graced his vast land – cows, goats, chickens, pigs, sheep's ducks, peacocks, and turkeys all found solace under his compassionate care. His dedication to these creatures exemplified his nurturing nature and deep empathy.


An avid card player and social butterfly, Jesus brought people together through laughter and shared moments. He reveled in playing cards, spending time with friends, and cherishing his family. His infectious laughter filled rooms, uplifting everyone in his presence. A gathering was never complete without his boisterous laughter and storytelling prowess.


His proudest achievements were simple yet significant. Jesus found immense joy in listening to Corridos, traditional Mexican ballads that highlighted the beauty of his culture. Through these melodies, he celebrated life's triumphs and instilled a sense of pride in his heritage. Jesus was truly the life and soul of any gathering he attended.


Jesus was a pillar of strength and love within his family circle. He leaves behind a devoted wife, Lucila, who stood by him through thick and thin. His children – Jesus, Guadalupe, Santos, Sonia, Maria, and Yolanda – were blessed to experience his unwavering love and guidance. Jesus also leaves behind a cherished brother, Ramiro.


The bond of family extended through generations as Jesus doted on his numerous Grandchildren: Jesus Alberto, Daniel, Lidia, Nayeli, Oscar, Fernando, Jaqueline, Jesus Ray, Annette, Jaime, Luis, Bianca, Elexia, Sebastian, Dylan Librado, Yesenia, Juan Manuel, Isabella, Alyson Sofia and Carlos. Great-grandchildren: Emanuel, Ariana, Juan, Jesus, Daniel Jr, Yanexi, Analia and Rayan. Additionally; a significant number of extended family members and friends mourn the loss of this extraordinary man.


Though our hearts ache with grief at the loss of Don Chuy's physical presence among us today we find solace in knowing that he fought for every moment of his quality of life until the very end. He taught us never to lose sight of what truly matters – love for one another and an unyielding spirit.


To celebrate the beautiful life that Jesus Rodriguez Hernandez lived, a "Celebration of Life" event will be held on November 19 2023 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM at 6383 Wadsworth Rd, Mt Dora, Florida, 32757. This occasion will be an opportunity for family and friends to come together, share stories, and honor the remarkable legacy that Jesus leaves behind.


As we bid farewell to our beloved Don Chuy, let us remember him not with sadness but with gratitude for the immeasurable impact he made on our lives. May his vibrant spirit live on in our hearts forever, and may his soul find eternal peace.
