MY HISTORY

CHILDHOOD/EDUCATION

     Jorge grew up in Tenafly, New Jersey graduating high school in 1987.  The son of a Cuban immigrant father who came to the United States in 1959, he remembers and appreciates his latino childhood: "My father told me he came here with a few hundred dollars in his pocket.  He worked his way up in the textile industry, and by 1977 he owned buildings in West New York, New Jersey.  It's a story of immigrant success that I will always remember.  It's a part of who I am.  It's because of him that I am committed to serving the people in our community who want a better life for themselves.  I will never turn my back on them.  My programs are designed as 'hand-ups' for hard working people of limited means."

Jorge proceeded to Rutgers University where he completed a Bachelor of Arts in 1991.  He subsequently attended Rutgers School of Law where he was a member of the law review, graduating with a Juris Doctor in 1995.  Jorge moved to California in 1997 and has never looked back.
