His dedication to service and his community was evident by his 43 years as a Texas Law Enforcement Officer. Of all of Juan’s achievements and accolades none of which made him more proud than being a father to his three children, Julia, Dani & JD. When all three of his children followed in his footsteps and became police officers themselves, their family dinners were never quite the same. In 2004, Juan married Cynthia (Garza) Vega and gained two more children, Candace & Brian.

Over the years Juan overcame some health issues, battling back each time and overcoming every obstacle; from Guilian Barre to Colon Cancer, “Quit” wasn’t something Juan knew how to do. Juan contracted COVID-19 and tested positive on July 15, 2020. A few days later, he was transported to the hospital and our lives would never be the same.
