Jessica Marie Menchaca, age 49 of Seguin, passed away on Wednesday, January 13, 2021. Jessica was born on February 2, 1971 in New Braunfels, Texas to Juan V. and April Marie (Farias) Ortiz. She was a graduate of New Braunfels High school and a former Monocera.
Over her 29 years at Continental Automotive she made countless friends. She never knew a stranger, and her smile would instantly put you at ease. She loved to be out on a dance floor. She gained a second family after joining CrossFit Seguin where she excelled in lifting big and heavy, and most importantly motivating others to reach their best. During the summer months you could always find her near the water in her free time. Most of all she loved spending her days with her family and grand-puppy Bella.
