Jerion, our beloved son was born in Odessa, Texas on November 19, 2003 to Eric Minjarez and Paula Marie Rodriguez. He attended Odessa High School. He was involved in New Way Basketball, YMCA Basketball, and PeeWee Cardinal Football. Jerion enjoyed doing what most 15 yr old boys do, playing video games, swimming, hanging out with his friends, playing basketball, listening to music, dancing and he loved taking pictures. He loved playing and watching sports. His favorite teams were Golden State Warriors and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but his passion was to play basketball. Jerion was very outgoing always had a big smile on his face, he had a very big heart and would help you with anything you needed no questions asked. Jerion could walk into a room and make everyone smile and laugh in an instant. He touched many hearts and was loved by many. He had a deep love for his family and friends. He truly cherished all the time they spent together playing practical jokes on one another and he enjoyed having family time and dinners with his friends. Jerion will forever be missed by everyone who knew him. We love you with all our hearts Jerion.
