Jorge and Eva Barragan
The Barragans celebrated their 16th anniversary in November and are a fixture in that middle pew in Holy Spirit’s sanctuary in one of the front rows. They have five children: Galiliea 14, Jimena 12, Jorge Jr. 8, Lucia 6 and Mariana 1. You’ve also probably seen some of the older children helping out at council events. Jorge and Eva met in Laredo when he was visiting family there. Jorge is a graduate of Waxahachie High and UT-Arlington, earning an engineering degree. Jorge first joined 8157 in 2010. After work took him to south Texas, the Barragans returned two years ago and he returned to our council. His activities have included resuming his role as our go-to guy when it comes to logistics for the parish’s annual fall festival.
