Jeancarlo “JC” Escruceria

August 19, 1984 - July 7, 2023

JC was a long time resident of Sedona, Arizona. He loved the Red Rock country and took every opportunity to immerse himself into the natural world by hiking and climbing alone or with friends. This love lead him to an early morning solo climb at Bell Rock. . .a climb that he had undertaken numerous times before. To the sorrow of many, this journey ended in tragedy and resulted in his untimely passing.

He relocated to Sedona from Montauk, NY in 2008 after falling in love with the mountains, climate, and people. He was known to many through his employment with the MacClinic PC Clinic, and he cherished the people who came into his life during that time.

His sense of adventure, gentle nature, and upbeat personality resulted in deep and abiding friendships not just throughout the Verde Valley but around the world.

JC is survived by Lelia Corzo (mother), George Corzo (uncle), Nancy Romero (aunt), Karla Romero (cousin), Omar Romero (cousin), Brenda "Betsy" Peerless (former wife and dear friend), and Viviane Winthrop (soul family). He also leaves behind a family of friends who will never forget how he made them better people.

A blessing and celebration of life ceremony is scheduled for July 29, at the Yavapai Vista. The ceremony will begin at 6:00 p.m., and all are welcome. Casual attire.

A GoFundMe account has been established to help with funeral and other related expenses. Please visit for more details.
