EVANSVILLE − Thousands of miles from his native Venezuela, Jesus Alejandro Segovia found a home in Evansville and a father figure in fellow countryman Guillermo Guevara.

“He has become a father for our family and he suggested to us to move to Evansville,” said Segovia, who left Venezuela in 2017.

He and his family lived in Chile and Colombia before coming to the U.S. He remembers the date they came to Evansville like it was yesterday: Dec. 28, 2021.

“This city is a great place to live,” Segovia said. “We like this city because it is a family-friendly city and we can give our children conservative values.”

Segovia is part of a recent uptick of migration by Venezuelans to the Evansville area. While official population statistics are not available, enough Venezuelans have moved to the local area that they have formed their own support system. They fled their homeland for new opportunities in the U.S. and in some instances, to escape persecution.
