Jennifer Vela went to be with our heavenly father on Saturday, May 14, 2022, at the age of 39. She was a graduate of King High School and a certified pharmacy tech; and she was a diehard Dallas Cowboy fan.

Among those left to honor and treasure her memory are her twin daughters, Kamila Houston and Jayla Houston; husband, Kevin Houston; parents, Abelardo “Mocho” and Eliza Vela; brother, Tres Vela; sister, Sonja Vela; maternal grandparents, Noe and Amalia Gonzales; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family.
