James Gonzalez, 67, entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, TX.

A native and lifetime resident of Brownsville, TX, Jimmy, as he was known to all, was the frontman for Jimmy G y Grupo Mazz. Jimmy was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed by his family, friends, and fans throughout our country and all over the world. His ability to make his family, friends, and fans feel special was experienced in his humble nature. Although Jimmy was known in the music industry as being known as a “Musical Genius” because of his talent for arranging, producing, and composing hundreds of hit songs, albums, and for winning 8 Grammys and hundreds of other awards, he never tired of hearing his fans chant his name and was always humbled by their love for him. Jimmy always enjoyed signing autographs and posing for pictures with his fans. His constant attention to the needs of others before his very own will never be forgotten.

Jimmy’s faith in God was shared through numerous conversations with those who knew him best and with the millions of fans from the stage. Jimmy’s family will miss the Christmas traditions they shared and the neighborhood Halloween parties. Jimmy’s generosity with the public was important to him and was evident in the numerous toy drives and the countless benefit concerts he performed for local churches.

Jimmy’s playful spirit will especially be missed by those who knew him best. We will always remember his love for watching the Dallas Cowboy games and the phone calls and texts giving game updates to many during football season. Jimmy’s simple taste for local cuisine was seen in his love for Rutledge Burgers, hot dogs, tamales, BBQ’s, and sweetbread.

There are a few things that Jimmy loved more than his adoring fans and music and they included his love for his mother, Consuelo; his wife, Lisa; his sons and grandchildren. Jimmy’s family hopes that his fans will continue to listen to his music and proclaim his legendary status in the music industry.

In the famous words of Jimmy “Grammy” Gonzalez: “Turn off the “lites”, God’s too strong”.

Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents, Consuelo “La Morena” and Santiago “Chago” Mendez Gonzalez; an infant daughter, Lisa Denise Gonzalez; a grandson, Baby Patrick Henry Gonzalez; and a brother-in-law, Richard Villarreal.

Jimmy is survived by his wife of 19 years, Anna Lisa Gonzalez, his 5 sons: Henry Lee (Patricia), James “Junebug” (Lenore), Lee Michael “Mikey” (Nancy), Joseph “Choch” (Celina), and Robert Lee “Uker” (Erica) and their mother, Yolanda Solis. He was the proud grandfather of 10: Lee Michael Jr., Dominic James, Jaymee Leigh, Myranda Jolie, Miranda Larysse, Nicholas Anthony, Meagan Grace, Henry Lee, and Sofia Lee. Jimmy will also be missed by his siblings: Beatriz “Bea” Villarreal, Julia “Lulu” Garza, Tommie “Magill” (Betty) Gonzalez, Cindy (Adolfo) Garcia and Norma Lee (Lonnie) Valdez along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family members.

Visitation will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Monday, June 11, 2018 at the Brownsville Event Center, 1 Event Circle. The Funeral Mass is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 12, 2018, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 1914 Barnard Rd., Brownsville, Texas. Committal services will follow at Buena Vista Burial Park.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts in Jimmy’s name may be made to the Gonzalez Family Fund at any IBC Bank, Acct. #1012511023.

You will truly be missed and we will truly miss going to see you live and dance to your music, our favorite thing to do indeed. We will never forget those times and how every time you owned the stage. Forever in our hearts and we will forever listen to your music.

My oldest daughter, Cristina met Jimmy when he stayed at Suntide II, and told him his grandma took care of him, and she called her for Jimmy to talked to her. She was so excited to hear his voice. Jimmy, may you Rest in Peace. Now, my mom will see you and your mom in heaven.

    Condolences to the Gonzalez family. I met Jimmy in the early 1980's. I was a promoter in the San Marcos area at the time. I started working with Jimmy and Joe until late 1998 when I quit doing promotions. I had nothing but respect for Jimmy. He was fair and honest during our working relationship. May you RIP Jimmy.

    I’ve been thinking about Jimmy since he passed. I’ve listened to his music more now than ever. I feel the loss of a real nice guy. Your music was romantic yet you still made me want to dance. I feel for your family your going to be missed. You touched so many hearts including mine. Your music will never die you left your legacy and it will always continue. I’m grieving along with others, but I know that Jesus had another plan for you. We love you Jimmy, God Bless you.
