Maria Feliz Gomez-Jauregui

Place of birth: Salinas, California

Religious affiliation: Catholic

Maria Gomez-Jauregui was born in Salinas, California on November 19, 1946 to Leon and Rosa Gomez. She attended Hartnell Junior College and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo in 1968.

Maria worked for Head Start and then in 1973, she went to work at Cal Poly in the Accounts Payable Department. She transferred to the Payroll Department and worked there until her retirement at the end of 2012.

During her forty years at Cal Poly, she volunteered for many organizations and served on many committees, including the Newman Catholic Center, the Childcare Advisory Committee, the Green and Gold BBQ crew, University Club and most recently served as Treasurer of the Chicana Latino Faculty Staff Association.

Being a dedicated mom to her children Hector Manuel “Manuelito” Lopez Guerrero and Jessica Gomez-Jauregui was her first priority. Jessica remembers when Maria was her water polo team mom, how she never missed a game, and shared tasty treats with everyone.

Maria’s crocheted creations were legendary. She gifted her handmade blankets and beanies to multiple generations of her many friends.

Maria had a fondness for the color burgundy, teddy bears, and watching the Lakers win!

Maria was preceded in death by her parents, Leon and Rosa Gomez and her son, Manuelito.

She is survived by her daughter Jessica and her sister Eleanor Gamboa (Juan), nephews Leon Gamboa, Juan Gamboa Jr. (Jackie), her niece Veronica Gamboa and some very special long time friends.

Although it is always difficult to lose a parent, Jessica is comforted in knowing she was reunited with her beloved Manuelito, 32 years to the day of his passing.
