We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Hennessey Valley Funeral Home & Crematory
Christian P. Jauregui, 39, passed away from liver disease and kidney failure on Sunday, June 12, 2022, in Spokane Valley, Washington. He was born to Alfredo and Martha Jauregui in Santa Monica, California, on November 18, 1982.
Christian married Jicela Tayna Jaime at St. Pius X Church in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Together they had one son, Christian “Lalito”. Christian was a full-hearted Catholic and enjoyed attending St. George the most.
Christian graduated from Post Falls High School, earned his insurance license, and went on to work as an insurance producer. He worked for Farmers Insurance for the majority of his adult life. There was no other job he loved to do more than insurance and he was good at it. All of his clients loved him. He hardly every complained about the job. He truly cared about his clients.
Christian was a simple and loving husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He loved to cook for everyone. Football was his favorite sport to watch, followed by UFC boxing. He was part of a fantasy football league every year-- he even got first place one year! He also enjoyed playing video games. No matter how terrifying a ride at an amusement park looked, you could always count on him to be the first one to say, “I’m down!”
Christian had an interesting and unique sense of humor. He could turn a dull or sad moment into a fun one and before you knew it, he had you laughing. If you didn’t know him, Christian may have come off as arrogant or some would say selfish, but nothing could be further from the truth. He always put Lalito and Jicela first. You could always count on him to be there if you ever needed him. Nothing pleased him more than seeing his loved ones smile. As most of us know, he had to always look top-notch with every hair in its place. We are all going to miss you, Honeysuckle! Rest in Peace.
Christian is survived by his wife, Jicela Tayna Jauregui and their son Christian Hilario “Lalito” Jauregui (Lalito’s first name comes from our favorite person and his middle name from Christian’s beloved uncle). Also survived by his brother Alfred, who is the oldest and the one to show him the ropes of life, and Manny, the “baby” of the family, a great example of what it’s like to be a good father in this day and age. Also survived by his mother, Martha, who taught him morals, how to truly treat a lady, and to believe God always has his best interests at heart. Survived by his father, Alfredo, who taught him how to be strong and not just follow-through, but to keep his word, and no matter what. His dad also taught him that family comes first and that hard work pays off in the long run. Also survived by his paternal grandmother, Tita, and maternal grandmother, Elena.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Lupe, who taught him how to play trompo; his paternal grandfather; his tio, Hilario; and tio, Oscar.
