Jesse Rocha received a Great Gifts of Gratitude award from Great Western Bank

Local Hero: Jesse Rocha

Jesse is the most giving person. He gives so much of himself to his church community, countless friends have been the recipients of his good deeds, he hears of a need and he is there.

He has run the St. Mary’s Food Kitchen for several years. The kitchen provides a meals to 300, once per month. Since the beginning of the pandemic that number has increased to 700 and above.

It is amazing to see how he fulfills the needs of so many during this pandemic. I know of no one who deserves the recognition more.
