Occupation: Nursing Home Orderly
Who is Jesus Velasquez?
Jesus Velasquez was an orderly at a nursing home where he took care of Lafayette Reynold’s mother, Ruby Jean. He began a romantic relationship with Lafayette, but ended it when he found out that Lafayette was dealing V. However, the two of them were reunited when Ruby Jean left the home and Jesus came looking for her.
Even though Jesus objected to selling drugs, he and Lafayette took V together and went on a shared hallucinatory trip, in which Lafayette learned that Jesus was a "brujo" (witch). After seeing a frightening vision, Jesus also revealed that his grandfather, Don Bartolo, dabbled in black magic, and wanted to steal Jesus’s power.
Despite the threat his grandfather posed to him, Jesus and Lafayette traveled to Mexico to ask the old man for help in protecting Lafayette from the threat of Pam and Eric, who were angry with him for forfeiting his promise to continue selling V.
Jesus was able to transform himself into a demon called Tio Luca, and used this power to stop Marnie Stonebrook from killing the vampires. Marnie then enacted her revenge by possessing Lafayette’s and killing Jesus. But that’s not the last we’ve seen of him!
These days, Jesus’s creepy disembodied head pops up unexpectedly around Bon Temps, and his full-body ghost visits Lafayette often to soothe, reassure, and sometimes even warn him.
