He was born in Alice, Texas to Ascencio and Martina Trevino. Jesse proudly served in the U.S. Army/Air Force during World War II. After receiving an Honorable Discharge, he attended the University of Texas in Austin under the GI Bill and graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 1950. Upon graduation he taught school for one year at Nayer Elementary in his hometown of Alice, TX.
In May of 1950 during graduation, Jesse Trevino and Mary Lou Beltran became engaged and married on October 14, 1951. Jesse and Mary Lou were married for 69 years and he passed one month shy of their 70th wedding anniversary. They were blessed with two children, David Jesus Trevino and Laura Alicia Flores.
Jesse Trevino was President/CEO of Jesse Trevino Insurance Agency Inc. for 52 years. He served as president of the McAllen Independent Insurance Agents Association and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Independent Insurance Agents Association of Texas.
He dedicated his life to improving education for all students in South Texas enabling them to further their opportunities in life. This led him to serve on many educational boards. Jesse served as Chairman of the Board for Intercultural Development Research Association (IDRA) for 32 years. He was President of the McAllen ISD School Board, founding member of the Mexican American School Board Association (MASBA), Region 1 Education Service Center Board and Co-founder and Chairman of COSTEP.

He was always an active member in the Catholic Church. For more than 60 years he was a member of the Knights of Columbus where he became a Fourth Degree Knight and served on numerous boards and committees at Our Lady of Sorrows and Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
His popularity came when he founded the legendary “Tripa Club”. This was an avenue he used to network with fellow business men for more than 40 years. The Bi-annual gatherings were announced with a humorous letter that members looked forward to receiving. A wonderful time was had by so many over the years all because of Jesse’s vision.
