Jesse Cruz

June 29, 1999 — August 13, 2022

Killeen

Jesse Robert Cruz, age 23, of Killeen and formally of California, was taken from this world too soon on the morning of August 13, 2022.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm, Thursday, August 25, 2022, at Viss Family Funeral Home, 1614 S. FM 116 Copperas Cove, TX 76522. Visitation will be held prior to the service from 12-2:00 pm at the funeral home.

Jesse was born on June 29, 1999, in Enna, Italy. He grew up and attended school in San Jose, California. He joined the United States Army in 2018 and trained in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Jesse and his wife, Briana Celiz, were married on May 22, 2020. He enjoyed hiking, loved going to the lake, riding his motorcycle, and spending every second he could with his daughter. Jesse was an old soul. He was funny, but not everyone understood his humor. He took pride in being in the Army and cared about the soldiers under him. His dream was to get his family to the next step to be secure and one day travel the world with them.

He was preceded in death by Robert Cruz, his father.

Jesse is survived by his wife of 3 years, Briana Celiz and his daughter, Giavonna Kapri Cruz.

John 11:25

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
