Baca, Jacob Clyde
Jacob Clyde Baca, 41, it’s with the deepest sadness we share the news of the untimely and sudden death of our beloved son, brother, uncle and friend “J” a.k.a. “Fool”.
He is preceded in death by his father that raised him Henry Ortega, his maternal grandmother Viola Salazar and youngest sister Francine Guerra.
He is survived by his mother Angie Ortega, biological father Barney Baca, his “pops” Mario Najar; siblings Olivia Jimenez (her husband Sean), Ercilia Najar (her wife Jessica Martinez), Delilah Ortega, adopted brother Salvador Gonzales.
Family and friends will truly miss J’s hilarious, energetic and outgoing personality. He was intelligent, witty and always cracking jokes. You would never find J without his headphones, music, guns and knives. He loved to cook and always volunteered to cook at everyone’s parties. He was absolutely adored by his nephew Ezekiel “Ziggy Piggy” and niece Frankie “The Kid”. J was devoted to them as if they were his own, he happily went on adventures and gave them undivided attention. He was a dependable, loving son, brother and friend. Our hearts and lives will never be the same without you fool!
Words cannot express our love and loss. WE LOVE AND MISS YOU TREMENDOUSLY! -Love mom and fool fool fool.
