February 24, 1964 — August 19, 2023

Tucson, AZ

Jesus "Kito" M. Santos Machado, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away on August 19, 2023. Born on February 24, 1964, Jesus was a kind-hearted man who touched the lives of many with his warm smile and gentle demeanor. His departure leaves a void in the hearts of all who knew him.

Jesus found his calling as an auto mechanic and dedicated his life to ensuring the smooth running of vehicles. With his skillful hands and keen attention to detail, he became known for his expertise in the field. Jesus took great pride in his work and always went the extra mile to provide excellent service to his customers.

Outside of work, Jesus cherished spending time with his family. He adored his grandchildren and never missed a chance to shower them with love and affection. They were truly the light of his life. His devotion to family was unwavering, and he continually found joy in their company.

Although Jesus had to end his formal education at a young age due to work responsibilities, he never ceased to be a curious learner. He embraced knowledge by staying updated on the latest advancements in automotive technology and constantly seeking opportunities for personal growth.

Jesus had a vibrant personality that left an indelible mark on those around him. He was always happy and wore a smile that could light up a room. His noble character and willingness to lend a helping hand earned him admiration from everyone who crossed paths with him. At times, he could be stubborn, but that stubbornness stemmed from his deep love for those closest to him.

In his free time, Jesus enjoyed watching classic television shows like "Walker Texas Ranger" and "Dukes of Hazzard." These shows served as an escape for him after long days at work, allowing him to relax and unwind.

His proudest accomplishments were undoubtedly his children and grandchildren. Evelyn Santos and Jesus Armando Santos, along with Isaac Fernando Santos, were a constant source of pride and joy for Jesus. Seeing his children grow into successful individuals brought him immeasurable happiness. He always made it a point to support them in their endeavors and offer words of encouragement. He also leaves his precious grandchildren, Angel Hiram Hernandez Santos, Jesus Dariel Santos Lopez, Liam Armando Santos, Christian Fernando Santos, Giovanni Adriel Santos and Renata Santos.

Jesus leaves behind his loving wife of 39 years, Clementina Santos, who stood by his side through thick and thin. Their unwavering bond was a testament to the strength of their love. The memories they created together will forever be treasured.

In addition to his wife and children, Jesus is survived by his brother Luis Antonio Santos, sisters Rosa Maria Salomon, Blanca Santos, Angelina Santos, and brother Jacinto Santos. They shared a deep bond that transcended the boundaries of blood. Family gatherings were filled with laughter and love as each member wholeheartedly embraced one another.

Jesús "Kito" M. Santos Machado, amado esposo, padre, abuelo, hermano y amigo, falleció el 19 de agosto de 2023. Nacido el 24 de febrero de 1964, Jesús fue un hombre de buen corazón que tocó las vidas de muchos con su cálida sonrisa y su comportamiento gentil. Su partida deja un vacío en el corazón de todos los que lo conocieron.

Jesús encontró su vocación como mecánico de automóviles y dedicó su vida a velar por el buen funcionamiento de los vehículos. Con sus manos hábiles y su gran atención al detalle, se hizo conocido por su experiencia en el campo. Jesús estaba muy orgulloso de su trabajo y siempre hizo un esfuerzo adicional para brindar un excelente servicio a sus clientes.

Fuera del trabajo, a Jesús le encantaba pasar tiempo con su familia. Adoraba a sus nietos y nunca perdía la oportunidad de colmarlos de amor y afecto. Fueron verdaderamente la luz de su vida. Su devoción por la familia era inquebrantable y continuamente encontraba alegría en su compañía.

Aunque Jesús tuvo que terminar su educación formal a una edad temprana debido a responsabilidades laborales, nunca dejó de ser un estudiante curioso. Acogió el conocimiento manteniéndose actualizado sobre los últimos avances en tecnología automotriz y buscando constantemente oportunidades de crecimiento personal.

Jesús tenía una personalidad vibrante que dejó una huella imborrable en quienes lo rodeaban. Siempre estaba feliz y tenía una sonrisa que podía iluminar una habitación. Su carácter noble y su voluntad de ayudar le valieron la admiración de todos los que se cruzaron con él. A veces podía ser terco, pero esa terquedad surgía de su profundo amor por sus seres más cercanos.

En su tiempo libre, Jesús disfrutaba viendo programas de televisión clásicos como "Walker Texas Ranger" y "Dukes of Hazzard". Estos espectáculos le sirvieron como escape después de largas jornadas de trabajo, permitiéndole relajarse y descansar.

Sus logros de mayor orgullo fueron, sin duda, sus hijos y nietos. Evelyn Santos y Jesús Armando Santos, junto con Isaac Fernando Santos, fueron una fuente constante de orgullo y alegría para Jesús. Ver a sus hijos convertirse en personas exitosas le trajo una felicidad inconmensurable. Siempre se propuso apoyarlos en sus esfuerzos y ofrecerles palabras de aliento. También deja a sus preciosos nietos, Angel Hiram Hernandez Santos, Jesus Dariel Santos Lopez, Liam Armando Santos, Christian Fernando Santos, Giovanni Adriel Santos y Renata Santos.

Jesús deja atrás a su amada esposa durante 39 años, Clementina Santos, quien estuvo a su lado en las buenas y en las malas. Su vínculo inquebrantable fue un testimonio de la fuerza de su amor. Los recuerdos que crearon juntos serán atesorados para siempre.

Además de su esposa e hijos, a Jesús le sobreviven su hermano Luis Antonio Santos, sus hermanas Rosa María Salomón, Blanca Santos, Angelina Santos y su hermano Jacinto Santos. Compartían un vínculo profundo que trascendía los límites de la sangre. Las reuniones familiares se llenaron de risas y amor mientras cada miembro se abrazaba de todo corazón.

Para honrar la vida y el legado de Jesús "Kito" M. Santos Machado, el velorio se llevará a cabo el 29 de agosto de 2023, de 5:00 p. m. a 9:00 p. m. en Martinez Funeral Chapels en Tucson. Seguirá un servicio de oración a las 7:00 p.m. durante el cual amigos y familiares podrán reunirse para encontrar consuelo en la presencia de los demás.

Se llevará a cabo una misa el 30 de agosto de 2023 en la Iglesia Católica Santa Cruz en Tucson a partir de las 10:00 a. m. Esta ocasión solemne brindará una oportunidad para que todos aquellos que amaron a Jesús se despidan de él y celebren la hermosa vida que vivió.
