On Sunday August 9th, 2015, John (Joáo) Manuel Jesus of Oliver passed away at the South Okanagan General Hospital at the age of 76 years.

He was predeceased by his parents Antonio & Almerinda Jesus Matos.

John will be fondly remembered by his loving family including wife Rosa Jesus; children Joe (Allison) Jesus, Rose (Stan) Marshall, Grace (Dave) Harfman and Frank (Sharon) Jesus; grandchildren Savannah, Courtney, Cienna, Alex, Max, Ellie, Rheanna, Amelia, Brooke and Olivia; sisters Lourdes (Norberto) Cabral, Ana-Isabel (Adelino) Sá; brother Luis (Carmen) Jesus as well a large extended family of brother and sister-in-laws, nieces, nephews and many great friends.

John worked as a farm labourer in various vineyards and farms in Oliver and was the owner of “Jesus’s Drive-In”.

Over the years John enjoyed many trips to Portugal to spend time with his three siblings as well as trips to Mexico where he found his love of “Tequila”.

John was very active in the parish of Christ the King, caretaking and serving and was a long time member of the Knights of Columbus. He also greatly enjoyed fishing and puttering in his garden.

Donations are gratefully accepted for the Canadian Cancer Society, PO Box 1872, Oliver, BC V0H 1T0.

An end of an era. “Jesus”s drive in” was a land mark no less of stature to McIntyre bluff. Mr Jesus raised the most awesome kids. He’s beaming from ear to ear looking down on the family who did all they could to keep him at home. May he rest in peace.
