Jesús María Aristu Mondragón was born in Pamplona, Navarre, Spain in 1935. He is the older brother of actor José Miguel Ariza (Miguel Angel Aristu Mondragón) [1943-2018]. One of 12 children, he was a theater, film and television actor who appeared in nearly 20 films in a ten-year career from 1960 to 1970. He was married to actress Marcella Yurfa.
I can find no further information on either except from the Spanish voice actor site eldoblaje which doesn’t show that Jesús has passed on.
Aristu appeared in two Spaghetti westerns:” A Bullet for Sandoval” in 1969 as Pablo and as a stagecoach passenger in 1970’s “Santana Kills Them All” starring Gianni Garko.
