Visitation was held Wednesday, July 2, 2014, at Austin-Tennant Funeral Home in Julesburg from 2pm to 6pm and also Thursday, July 3, from noon to 6pm.

Johnny Andrew Ornelas, aka Johnny the Jet and Johnny no guns, was born March 7, 1992 in Garden Grove, California to Ricky Ornelas and Bobbie Lynn Ramos. He moved to Julesburg, Colorado at the age of two and was a resident until he graduated high school in 2011. He then moved to Torrington, Wyoming to start his career as a Corrections Officer for the State of Wyoming.
Growing up in Julesburg Johnny touched many lives and made friends easily with his great sense of humor and ornery antics. Everyone that knew Johnny knew he lit up the room when he walked in and could bring a smile to anyone's face. Johnny was an avid athlete and competed in Football, Basketball, Baseball and Track in High School. He was All-State in all sports and was the State Champion in Pole Vault his senior year. He lettered in all four sports all four years. After graduation, Johnny still stayed active with friends and family as he enjoyed going to the lake, playing games and helping anyone in their time of need. Johnny also kept his goof ball attitude after High School as you could find him singing Backstreet Boys in the shower or saying random off the wall things to catch you off guard. He will be greatly missed!
