Obituary: Jorge Gil

For The Madera Tribune

Jorge Gil.


Jorge Gil, loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend, died on Jan. 25, 2023, in Madera, Ca., at the age of 32. The family is deeply saddened and shocked by his sudden death.

Jorge was born on Sept. 5, 1990. Jorge is survived by his wife Karissa, and his two beloved sons, Jeremy and Nathaniel.

He was raised in Madera and had recently moved to Merced. Jorge embraced his new career as a tractor mechanic and thrived as a hard working family man. Jorge will be remembered for his smile and laugh and soul that many found comfort in. He left behind his belief in love embedded in his family.

Jorge was a devoted father and husband. His greatest joy came from his two sons, Jeremy (10) and Nathaniel (7), watching them grow and find joy in life. They enjoyed going on adventures, exploring the outdoors, bonfires, stargazing, bike rides, laughing and creating memories as a family in their new home. He encouraged his boys to learn new things and to be independent, believe in themselves, and be courageous. Jorge was an adoring husband to his wife and soulmate, Karissa. Their love prevails.

Jorge’s faith had recently grown and his relationship with God had never been stronger.

Jorge was preceded by his father, Ruben Gil, Sr., Rodolfo Gil, Serefina Lopez, and Monica Maciel.

He is also survived by his Mother Martha P. Melogoza, and siblings, Ruben, Gabriel, Daniel, and Isabel Gil, as well as many precious nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

His wake is scheduled at 3 p.m., followed by the Rosary at 6 p.m. on Thursday, February 2, at St. Joachim’s Catholic Church. The Funeral mass will be held Friday, February 3, at 10:30 a.m. and immediately followed by a graveside burial at Calvary Ceremony in Madera, Ca.
