Jose Trejo

August 1, 1966 — February 28, 2024

In loving memory of Jose Francisco Trejo, a man whose strong spirit and gentle heart touched the lives of many. He was born on August 1, 1966, in Sonsonate, El Salvador, where he began his remarkable journey through life. Tragically, he departed from this world on February 28, 2024, in West Covina, CA, leaving behind a legacy of love and laughter that will forever be cherished by those who knew him.
 
Jose was a man of many talents and interests. From his days at Franklin High School as the skilled goalkeeper of the varsity soccer team to his proud accomplishments as a volunteer lifeguard for Cruz Verde Salvadorena at an early age, he exhibited a passion for sports and a dedication to helping others. His love for swimming led him to conquer long distances in the vast ocean, displaying both his physical strength and unwavering determination. Jose became a husband and father at the age of 20, marrying Yolanda Gomez whom he met at Franklin High School, together they had three sons: Joseph, Andrew, and Kevin. 
 
Jose was known for his amiable personality and infectious sense of humor. Known to be a strong presence on the dance floor of any party. He had an effortless way of making friends wherever he went, always ready with a joke or a kind word to brighten someone's day. His genuine nature endeared him to all who had the privilege of crossing paths with him. In his leisure time, Jose could often be found spending time with at least one of his three sons. He also enjoyed watching sports, particularly watching a soccer or football game and being around family and friends. His love for music was also well known, often listening to his favorite Rock en Espanol, New Wave, and Alternative Rock music. These simple joys brought him immense pleasure and allowed him to unwind from life's demands. 
 
As Jose peacefully passed surrounded by his loving family; it is evident that his memory will live on through the bonds he forged with those closest to him. Though he may no longer be physically present among us, his spirit continues to inspire and bring comfort to all who carry his memory in their hearts.
 
The services to honor Jose Francisco Trejo's life will be held at Forest Lawn - Glendale in California. A Visitation will take place on March 19 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM followed by a Funeral Service starting at 5:00 PM in the Little Church of the Flowers. 
 
We bid farewell to a beloved soul whose light will forever shine brightly in our hearts. May Jose rest in peace knowing he was loved deeply and will never be forgotten.
