Gilberto “Gilly” C. Jasso, age 56 of Forney, TX, passed away October 24, 2021. He was born October 10, 1965, in Mexico to Gregorio M. and Beatriz (Chapa) Jasso. Gilberto was devoted to his family. He was very considerate and cared deeply about those near to him. He always had a smile on his face, was a sharp dressed man and knew he looked good. Gilberto was a morning person who loved the outdoors and was always doing something outside. He enjoyed hunting, playing soccer, enthusiastically cheering for the Dallas Cowboys, and drinking Miller Lite with an occasional Bloody Mary. He lived by one oath, “I don’t cheat on my wife and I don’t cheat on my beer.”

Gilberto is survived by his loving wife of 34 years: Maria C. Jasso; daughters: Anjelica Nicole Martinez and husband Roman, Jennifer Alexandra Jasso and fiancé Matthew Burkemper, and Erika Jeanette Jasso; grandchild: Chrissy Jo Martinez; parents: Gregorio and Beatriz Jasso; brother: Gregorio Jasso and wife Lupita; sister: Aracely Jasso Moreno; nephews: Mario, Jorge, Carlos, Diego, Hugo and Giovani; niece: Sofia. He was preceded in death by his sister Grisleda Jasso.

Funeral mass time is pending for Friday, October 29, 2021, at St. Bernard of Clairvaux Catholic Church in Dallas with Fr. Luis Prado officiating. Interment will follow in Sacred Heart Cemetery. Pallbearers will include Greg Jasso, Roman Martinez, David Kennedy, Alex Kennedy, Jorge Jasso and Matthew Burkemper. The family will gather for visitation with friends at Rest Haven Funeral Home Rowlett Thursday from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
