This certifies that the heraldic arms of Jesse Carrasco are registered as an original design and are described by the blazon below
The acorns have multiple depth of meaning. First, they are canting. Carrasca is a type of oak tree found in Spain. Second, they represent the first three generations of the armiger’s family that have lived in the United States. Third, they are placed above the chevron to represent the armiger’s parents and grandparents who emigrated from Mexico and below the chevron is the armiger’s generation, the first to be born in the United States. Finally, the three acorns represent the armiger and his two siblings. The chevron represents the mountains in Mexico and the United States where the armiger’s family grew up and alludes to their movement to the north. The bear symbolizes the state of California where the family immigrated and still resides.
The colors of Vert, Sable and Argent are the colors of multiple high schools where the armiger, his parents and his siblings graduated. Argent was chosen for the charges during design to serve as a reminder of the past where the family came from while moving towards the future. In addition, Argent provides a link to the armiger’s mother, as her name translates to ‘white’.
The crest represents the university attended by the armiger which is also his current place of employment. His profession of providing guidance to incoming students and orienting them to campus life is symbolized by the compass rose. The compass rose also recalls the Christmas story of the three wise men following the star until they find Jesus lying in the manger. Therefore it serves as a personal moral compass to remind the armiger to follow his ‘true north’ and do what is right in following the path to God. The compass rose is Or because it is the common color of both universities where the armiger has earned degrees.
