Jacobo Zamora was born in Jarales, NM on March, 21, 1932. He was raised to be a hard worker and that is exactly who he was. He raised his children to be the same way. He was always willing to open his home and heart for those in need. Often housing more than fit comfortably in their small home. It may have been full of people but it was always full of love too. He was a devout Catholic, attending mass every morning. Family and friends were the most important things to him. He always wanted to make sure the people in his life knew they were loved and welcome.
Jake will be greatly missed. We have shared many loving years with such a special and giving man We know that he wants us to remember him fondly and to celebrate him rather than shed tears for him. Remember the love Jake shared with all of you and try to honor him by sharing the same love he gave each of those he came in contact with throughout his life.
