He is preceded in death by his parents, Jesse Flores Delao and Nativadad Vela DeLaO.

Survivors include his wife, Daisy Renea Vela; his children, Cameo Fonseca and husband Peter, III, Crystal Delao, and Jesse Delao, all of San Antonio, TX; his sisters, Sandra Vela and fiancé Randy Barber of West Monroe, Yvonne Winters and husband, Abel, Jr. of San Antonio, TX, and Patricia Velasquez and husband, Hector of San Antonio, TX; also survived by two grandsons and a host of extended family and friends.

I have so many amazing memories of our life together... and to single one out is near impossible. We loved, we laughed, we fought, we cried. We never missed a chance to dance to our song, be it in a grocery store, or in our own kitchen. We danced. He had an amazing heart...and I am a better person for having him as my soulmate. I Love you Jesse Vela...always have... always will...

Wow, his life was cut short. I will miss h8m so much. Even though we kept in touch, he didn’t tell me he was sick.

It is so crazy that the thing he loved more than me, is what took him away from us all.

When Jesse and I were living in Kaplan he was outside and seen my grandmothers ghost and as big and bad as he thought he was he turned pale as a sheet of paper and screamed like a girl and ran down the hall I never caught so hard in my life. I love you always
