Jesse Duenas Sablan, 64, born in Tamuning, Guam, passed away July 18, 2020 in Queen Creek, Arizona. Jesse was preceded in death by his parents, Jesus and Catalina Sablan, his brothers, Robert Sablan and David Sablan, and his nephew, Joshua Lukeala.

Jesse is survived by his wife Barbara of 42 years; daughters, Jonielle Sablan, Jenna (Jaime) Flores, and Jessika (Alejandro) Gomez; grandchildren, Brianna, Jaethan, Ahmir, Izabella, Micah, and Kai; his sisters, Lynda (Vince) Mendiola, Catherine Sablan, Frances (Albert) Ignacio, Dorothy (Anthony) Lukeala, June (Michael) Sablan, Esther (Jesse) Sablan, and Joyce Sablan; his brother, Roland (Christine) Sablan, and numerous nephews and nieces.

Jesse was a retired US Army veteran. Throughout his 30 years serving in the U.S. Army, he held a variety of leadership positions. His last position before retirement was as the Command Sergeant Major for the 10th Support Group in Okinawa, Japan. After retirement he went on to work for the U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command for 10 years. He was a hardworking man who loved to stay busy. When he was not working he was tending to his garden or thinking of things to fix up around the home. He was a family man who loved to spend time with his daughters and grandchildren every minute that he could.

A special thank you to family and friends for their loving care, especially the doctors and nurses at Banner Ironwood Medical Center who took care of Jesse during his final days. Also, the family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude towards the San Tan Mountain View Funeral Home for being very accommodating and understanding during this difficult time.

Even though he was taken too soon, he lived an extraordinary life surrounded by people who loved and adored him. A memorial service will be held at 2:00pm on Monday, July 27 at the San Tan Mountain View Funeral Home Church in Queen Creek, Arizona. Friends and family that are not able to attend in person will be able to view the memorial service via Zoom. Copy and paste this link to view the service:

    I had the great honor & privilege of serving with CSM Jesse Sablan in Japan from 1999 2000. Jesse was an amazing professional soldier and a kind individual to all who knew him. The most amazing thing about Jesse that was engraved in your soul was his smile. Please accept our very sincere condolences to Mrs. Sablan, his children, grandchildren & all his family.

    CSM Sablan hired me as his sergeant majors driver in Yongsan, Korea I believe 1999-2000…actually he had hired a new driver just 3 days prior but after meeting with him n talking he decided to give me the job.! We kept in touch over the years but more recently, where he was concerned with my safety being a NYPD cop in these trying times. He was a good friend and serve our country with honors. I am deeply saddened with his sudden passing but old soldiers never die, just fade away. Heaven has received a special man…
