Mr. Jesus “Chuy” Eduardo Mendoza Almeida, age 35, from Lyons, died Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at Piedmont Cartersville Medical Center in Cartersville after a brief battle with COVID-19.

He attended the Toombs County School system since 1992 and was a founding member of the Toombs County Men’s Soccer Program before earning his diploma in 2005. After high school, Jesus attended Middle Georgia College to further his education. Jesus was passionate about soccer and was an avid supporter of Club America, Boca Juniors, and Chelsea while also supporting the national teams from Mexico and Argentina. He modeled his own playing style after Diego Armando Maradona and always looked to create opportunities for others while on the field.

As a dual citizen of the United States and Mexico, he loved visiting his friends and family throughout Mexico, and it is there that he met his future wife Rosalia. After marrying in 2019, Jesus and Rosalia worked together in the rack installation industry, where he served as a crew supervisor and travelled throughout the United States setting up various stores prior to their opening.
