Jorge Sanjurjo

March 15, 1950 — October 13, 2022

Jorge Sanjurjo was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico on March 15, 1950 to the late Francisca Febres and Jorge Sanjurjo Sr. In 1956 he relocated to the Bronx, NY with his mother, and sister Elsa Sanjurjo. Jorge graduated from Evander Childs HS and attended John Jay College for Criminal Justice pursuant to become a counselor for incarcerated youths. Jorge then changed paths in pursuit of a career with the New York City Transit Authority from which he retired in 2018 as a Train Conductor. He attended Fordham Manor Reformed Church in the Bronx during his time as a conductor, and after relocating to Powder Springs, GA, started attending the Faith Christian Center in Smyrna, GA and Austell, GA, until he became ill in 2020. Jorge was very passionate about the Lord, as he prayed and asked his sister Elsa to read his favorite Psalms to him as he was dealing with his illness. Jorge was a very caring man who loved to help people in his church and community. Tito, as he was affectionately called by close friends and family, enjoyed picnics, camping, and all sports, including swimming, basketball, football, and baseball. Jorge had an infectious laugh and a great sense of humor; he was always making us laugh with his jokes and funny stories. On Wednesday October 13th 2022 he transitioned to be with the Lord at 11:20 am in his sisters' arms at home after a long battle with dementia and heart disease. Jorge is survived by his immediate family Elsa Sanjurjo, his sister, his daughter Judy Sanjurjo, and his granddaughters Rukia Ali, Nabiha Ali and Frances Ali. He is also survived by is nieces Elizette Lawrence and Roxanne Updegraph, grandniece, Mercedez Heggs and her son Keiji Shikama, nephew Antonio Sanjurjo & his wife Shirita Sanjurjo, grandniece Alana Sanjurjo, and grandnephew Antonio Sanjurjo Jr.
