Lorain- Jesse Camarillo, 74, died unexpectedly on Saturday, April 11, 2020 at Mercy Regional Medical Center in Lorain after a brief illness.  His loving family was by his side when he entered eternal life.


Jesse was born at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Lorain on July 7, 1945 to his loving parents, Domingo (Jesse) Camarillo and Josephine (nee: Cacia) Camarillo.  Jesse was a lifelong resident of Lorain/Elyria.


Jesse graduated from Elyria High School in 1963, after which he served honorably in the United States Navy from 1963 until 1967.  Upon being honorably discharged from the United States Navy, Jesse married the love of his life, Eileen Camarillo (nee: Murray).  In over fifty one years of marriage, Jesse and Eileen spent only five nights apart from one another.  Jesse found work as a machinist at US Steel Corporation in Lorain, and retired in 1999 after thirty years of dedicated service.


In his retirement years, Jesse enjoyed traveling with his loving wife as well as going on casino trips and doing handy work around his home; as well as for family members and friends.  Jesse also cherished spending time with his two sons, Nick and Denny Camarillo and their families.  Jesse was an avid fan of all Cleveland sports teams and also enjoyed NASCAR.  Jesse was a member of St. Mary’s and St. Anthony’s parishes, both in Lorain and was also an active member in the Lorain Chapter of the MACC (Mexican American Citizens Club).


Jesse is survived by his wife, Eileen (nee: Murray) Camarillo; children, Nickolos (Renee nee: Wilson) Camarillo and Dennis (Kristine nee: Duray) Camarillo; siblings, Gloria (George) White, Roland (Patricia) Camarillo, William (Janet) Camarillo and Joyce Decker; as well as several nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandson.
