On Monday, November 26, 2018, our beloved son, brother, uncle and dear friend Jason Michael Espinoza age 36, of Sunnyside, WA entered into heaven. Born on January 14, 1982, to Rose Espinoza in Sunnyside, WA, Jason received his education in Sunnyside, graduating from Sunnyside High School in 2000.
Jason was a fun, loving, protective big brother who loved his family with all that was him. Jason’s lust for life allowed him to make life long friends wherever he was or whatever he was doing. His infectious laugh and bright smile would make anyone feel welcomed in his presence. Jason from a young age enjoyed sports that he seemed to have a natural ability to perfect. Some of his past time hobbies include playing basketball, playing pool, visiting family and friends, and spending time with his nieces and nephews. Jason will be greatly missed by many. Although, his death was sudden and unexpected we are reminded of how generous and loving Jason was even after his death. There wasn't anything Jason wouldn't do to help a friend or family member, and his death has helped four additional lives with his organ donation. We will forever cherish the time spent and memories made with Jason during his time here on earth, and we look forward to seeing him in the afterlife.
Jason is survived by his parents Rose Espinoza Garza and Pedro Garza Jr (Mari), two brothers Jonathan Garza, Pedro Garza III (Michele) and his two sisters Yvette Garza and Rosa Garza. Additionally he is survived by his nieces and nephews Jeremiah, Destiny, Izabellah, Jhonathan, Zoey, Liam, Sophia Garza, Hayden and Payton Ruiz, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his loving grandparents Alfredo and Maria Espinoza, and cousin, Timmy Espinoza.
