Jaguars give condolences to Daniel Jimenez on passing of mother

Deon McCauley

A funeral service was held this afternoon in San Ignacio for Theresita Jimenez, the mother of star forward Daniel Jimenez, who had to return from the United States on Friday to be with his ailing parent.  Jimenez suffered a stroke prior to her son’s departure to Portland, Oregon the week before the regional CONCACAF competition commenced.  She passed away over the weekend.  Today, members of the Belize Jaguars offered words of condolences to the Jimenez family.

    I am sad for this young man who lost his mother. My condolences to him and his family. I am so glad that he made the decision to come home and see his mother, this game will be there, he had one mother. Those who criticized him should be ashamed. We need more young people who has the right priority and value family, if they did, there may not be these senseless murders. Proud of you young man.

    I want to offer my condolences to Daniel Jimenez on the passing of his mother. Losing a parent is one of the most difficult experiences one must face in life.
