Plan Ahead

Jessica Marie Solomon

November 2, 1966 –
 March 6, 2023


With great sorrow and steadfast love, the Gonzales and Solomon families announce the unexpected passing of our brilliant, kind, generous, beautiful mother, wife, daughter, aunt, and niece, Jessica Marie Solomon.

Jessica Marie Solomon (née Gonzales) was born on November 2, 1966, in Los Angeles, California to Maria Christina Gonzales and Daniel Stanley “Talao” Gonzales. She grew up primarily in El Paso, Texas with her big sister Rachel. She graduated from Ysleta High School and was an integral part of the drum corps. As she pursued a degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas at El Paso, she also helped raise (and named) her sister’s daughter, Charlie. In 1993, Jessica advanced all the skills she built as the perfect aunty, to being the perfect mother to her daughter, Grace. Jessica was devoted to her entire family, always available for snuggles, snacks, hopping in the car and driving nowhere, and dispensing sage advice about any of life’s challenges.

Her breathtaking beauty, her undeniable charisma, her infectious laugh and smile, and her razor-sharp, lightning-fast sense of humor left a mark on everyone she met. To be in conversation with her was to feel like royalty and the most interesting person in the room.  She wasn’t just the life of the party – she was the party – where we all wanted to be.

In addition to cracking jokes and making up silly songs, she loved horseback riding, visiting state Capitols, being politically informed and engaged, traveling, cooking, being with family, eating McDonald’s, and tending to her garden.

Jessica was predeceased by her father, Daniel Gonzales, and is survived by her mother Christina, and her sister Rachel. She leaves behind her niece Charlie, her daughter Grace, and Grace’s fiancé Rob. This life won’t be the same without her.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

    That was such a beautiful obituary of such a beautiful woman inside and out. Life has its downs but also beautiful moments. Jessica sounds like she inspired alot of beautiful moments for those who had the privilege to know and be around her and that is a true blessing. Jessica I pray that you have found peace and right now your with the family waiting for the rest of us. I pray for peace and comfort for those who you left behind although they know in their hearts they will see you again the physical absence can hurt. God bless, God us a good, good Father.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
