He was invested as a knight, in the Order of the Legion of Honor, for "Extraordinary Heroism and Valor" in battle, by the French government, and was awarded the French Croix de Guerre (the French Medal of Honor), for "Heroism, Gallantry and Bravery," by French Gen. Charles de Gaulle (personally approved by General of the Army, Dwight D. Eisenhower), in January, 1945. Some French citizens have referred to Pete Jimenez, as "the Sgt. Alvin York, of World War II."

Pete also was honored by the Pueblo county commissioners, and by the Pueblo City Council in July, 2003, for his heroism and wartime accomplishments, and both he, and his wife, Carmen, were honored for their accomplishments as parental role models. After the war, Pete worked at the CF&I (Colorado Fuel and Iron) Corp. as a steel worker, and retired in 1980, after 33 years of service. He was a strong believer in the steel worker's union.

Job, Frank
Frank Job - Trinidad Advertiser - November 4, 1906 - Prominent Mine Boss Killed in Explosion - Frank Job, one of the best known mine bosses in the Southern tier of the state, was mangled and killed in a terrific explosion in the Victor Fuel Company's mine at Hastings late Friday night. In some way, the shot of dynamite that was exploded was heavier than usual. Before the blast was fired all the miners sought a place of safety. Job was fifty feet away -- a sufficiently safe distance to be out of the danger zone. When the dynamite exploded there was a loud detonation and chunks of coal were thrown in the air. Suddenly, from the powder point a huge block of coal was thrown straight at Job. Although nearly twenty yards away, so great was the force of the explosion that the rock was hurled against him with sufficient power to crush his ribs in and he fell dead in his tracks, crushed to pieces. The smoke and dust prevented the others from seeing what had happened. Job had fallen without a sound. As the air became clarified they were startled to see him lying prone on his back. A closer inspection showed that the rock had caved in his whole breast in the region of the heart, as though it had been but mere cardboard. Job is married and leaves two small children. He was 38 years of age and for many years ran a grocery store at Segundo. He was exceptionally well liked and his frightful death is deplored by the whole mining community. The Trinidad Furniture Company of this city was notified and sent their undertaker, George Haugen, to Hastings. The body was last night prepared for burial. The funeral cortege will leave Hastings for Trinidad at 9 o'clock this morning. Services will be held in this city at 2:30 o'clock today at the Catholic Church and internment will be in the cemetery. To show the great regard that Job was held in may be shown by the fact that every available carriage in the city has been engaged for the funeral. The funeral in length will be one of the largest held in this section in years. Yuma Pioneer - November 16, 1906 - Frank Job, night boss at the Hastings mine of the Victor Fuel Company near Trinidad, was killed on the 3d inst. by a lump of coal crushing his breast. He was standing fifty feet from the explosion of a shot, which has always been regarded a safe distance. He was thirty-eight years old and leaves a widow and two children.
