Jesus Rivera Briones


1937 ~ 2020

Jesus "Riverita" Rivera Briones, 83, was born on June 19, 1937 in Nuevo Leon, Mexico and was called home to be with his Lord and Savior on August 11, 2020 in Houston, Texas.  It is with deep sorrow that we mourn the loss of a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, great great grandfather, and friend.  Jesus was an avid hunter and fisherman; he was known for his perfect aim with his rifle, old school, no scope.  He taught everyone to be patient and leaves behind a great legacy.  He was preceded in death by his father, Juan Rivera Gonzalez; also by his mother, Cloofas Briones.  He leaves behind to cherish and treasure his memories his loving wife of 61 years of marriage, Maria Luis Gamez de Rivera; his sons, Juan Enrique Rivera & wife Concepcion, Joel Rivera & wife Rebecca Elizabeth, Jesus Rivera & wife Maria Adela, and Jorge Luis Rivera & wife Maria; his daughter, Juana Rivera & husband Reynaldo Bravo, Julieta Rivera, Maria Alejandra Rivera & husband Jose Guadalupe Betancourt; his brother, Paulino Rivera Briones; his sisters, Eusebia Rivera, Beatriz Rivera, and Rita Rivera; 17 grandchildren; 22 great grandchildren; 1 great great grandchild; he also leaves behind many other relatives and numerous friends.  Jesus leaves a void in everyone's heart;  he will be dearly missed by all those who were touched by his beautiful soul.
