Jesse Anthony Martinez (KONG), age 45, entered into eternal rest on November 11, 2013 after a courageous, 11th month battle with cancer. He was born in San Antonio, TX on January 23, 1968 and attended Woodlawn Hills Elementary School, Longfellow Middle School and Jefferson High School. He was a devoted Spurs and Cowboy fan. He was also an avid outdoorsman. Never a day went by he didn't wish he was hunting or fishing with his cousin Bruce Holcomb. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to everyone regardless of how difficult or dirty the task. Despite his 6'4" brooding stature, he was a gentle giant with a big heart. Predeceased in death by his father, Ezequiel Martinez, survivors include his mother, Lidia Villarreal Navarijo, stepfather, Aurelio Olvera, brother, Dominic Guerra of New York, sister, Gina Arriola (Rene), nieces and nephew, Sasha, Rene Jr and Ashley Arriola, several aunts & uncles and numerous cousins.
