He grew up in Wortham and graduated from Wortham High School. He had been a Plant Operator for Enbridge, Inc. for 10 years. JJ loved and cherished his family. Although he had no children of his own, he loved his nieces and nephews as if they were his own. They thought their Uncle JJ was the greatest and, given the choice, they would choose staying with him over anyone else. He was outgoing, enjoyed being around people and made friends wherever he went. JJ enjoyed working, he wasn’t one to be idle. He loved his cows and ranching. His grandfather called him “his ranch hand,” a title he was proud of. They shared the same interest and a very special bond.
