Jesse C. Dutra

Dutra, Jesse

Oct. 25, 1929 — June 19, 2014

Longtime Davis resident Jesse C.Dutra died on June 19, 2014, at the age of 84.

Jesse grew up in Ponta Delgada, in Portugal’s Azores Islands, and emmigrated in 1947 to attend UC Davis. At the time, he was not only the first student to attend UCD from Portugal, but at the age of 17, was also the youngest on campus. After postgraduate completion, he continued to conduct research at the university for about 25 years.

In 1960, he married Margaret Costa, also from the Azores, and remained married to her for 53 years, until his death.

He retired from the university in 1985. In retirement, Jesse utilized his time pursuing his passion for gardening, travel, reading, and music appreciation.

Jesse is survived by his wife Margaret, who continues to reside in Davis; sons Jesse of Woodland and Joseph and his wife Pamela of San Diego; and grandsons Daniel and Samuel, both from San Diego. He is also survived by his younger brother Ramiro, of Pomona.

A memorial mass will begin at 11 a.m. Friday, June 27, at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery (St. Joseph’s Chapel) 6700 21st Ave. in Sacramento.
