Jimmy Juarez

December 28, 1933 — December 14, 2022

Jimmy Juarez went to be with his Lord and Family on December 14th, 2022.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas Juarez and Italia (Grassi) Juarez; his brothers and sisters - Robert, Lonnie, Maxine, Maybele, Ismael, Israel, and Clarence. 

 

He is survived by his Wife of 67 years Cecilia (a year short of forever), his sons Tomas and Jim (wife Bertha), his daughter Lisa, and Madlyn Juarez. Five grandchildren Sarah Page (husband Ryan), Sergio Jimenez (wife Alissa), Teresa Papanicolaou (husband Costa), Matthew Juarez, and Adrianna Jimenez.  Three great grandchildren Carson, Kate, and Dina. Numerous Nieces and Nephews.

 

Family was, first and foremost, the most important aspect of his life, whether it was always  taking an extra job to provide for his family, opening up his home to countless nephews and nieces to stay the summer, or to help any other family members in any way that he could.

 

Born December 28, 1933 and raised in Artesia, NM, where he met and instantly fell in love with his wife, when he first saw her, they then moved to Albuquerque, NM, on an athletic scholarship at the University of New Mexico, where he earned his Bachelor's Degree in Education and his Master’s Degree in Administration.  He spent 39 years with Albuquerque Public Schools. He was dedicated to his players, students, and staff with whom he shared that part of his life as a Coach, Teacher, Athletic Director, Assistant Principal and Principal. The rippling effect of his guidance, most particularly with those of his players who consider him a father figure and still to this day, call him Coach - they are as much a part of his family as any.
