The Legacy of Joan Sebastián: His Children
José Manuel Figueroa, better known as Joan Sebastián, was a renowned Mexican singer who passed away in 2015. Unfortunately, another of his children has followed him prematurely. Julián Figueroa, whom he had with Maribel Guardia, died of a heart attack on Sunday, April 9, 2023. However, the “People’s poet” had more children, who are mourning the death of their brother.
The interpreter originally from Juliantla had several romances that were public knowledge. Several boys and girls were born from these unions, while others died unexpectedly. In total, the composer of songs like “Tattoos” and “Secreto de Amor” had eight children from his different relationships, although three of them have died. Here we tell you who they are.
Jose Manuel Figueroa
The first son of Joan Sebastián, who bears his real name, is José Manuel Figueroa and was the result of his relationship with Teresa González, his first partner. He was born on May 15, 1975, and followed in his father’s footsteps by trying to break into the music industry. One of his most recent songs is “Directo al corazón”.
Juan Sebastián Figueroa
The second son of the interpreter and Teresa González was Juan Sebastián Figueroa. Unfortunately, it was the first loss that “El Rey del Jaripeo” suffered, as he passed away on June 12, 2010, at the age of 32. On that occasion, the death was due to the violence experienced in Mexico, although it is not known for sure if the murderer was the guard of a hotel with whom he argued, or the South Pacific cartel, which he later claimed to be responsible for.
Similarly, the third child he had with Teresa González was also killed by an armed person. The young man worked with his father as part of his security team. During a concert in Texas, United States, Trigo Figueroa prevented the fans from approaching, but one of them had a gun and shot him.
The loss of Julián Figueroa has been the most recent. He is the only child he had with Maribel Guardia and was born on May 2, 1995. He also got into music and acting. One of his last roles was in “My way is to love you” with Gabriel Soto.
Zarelea Figueroa is the first daughter Joan Sebastián had and was the product of his relationship with María del Carmen Ocampo. She also dabbled in music and, in 2017, she released her EP called “I remember you pretty”. Later, she published an album and one of her most popular songs, “Verdad que duele”.
D’Yave was the result of the relationship between the singer Alina Espino and Joan Sebastián. She is characterized as being very private with her personal life, and her social media is in restricted mode.
Joana Marcelia Figueroa
Joana Marcelia Figueroa is another daughter of the singer Alina Espino. Unlike her sister, she is very active on social media and even works as an influencer. Likewise, she studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
The youngest of Joan Sebastián’s daughters was with his last wife, Erica Alonso. Juliana Joeri Figueroa was born on March 8, 2003, and is also an influencer on social networks, where she shares posts of her expensive clothes and trips.
Joan Sebastián left behind a great legacy not only in music but also in his children, who continue his memory in their own way.
