In his own words, Jesús is passionate about finding the potential in everyone and especially with people who are struggling to connect with others. Jesús was instrumental in opening the Miami Theater Center where, among many projects, Jesús developed special education programs for children and adults. At his departure, the program had grown to serving thousands of people. In addition, Jesús has created programs of inclusion where people who are visual impaired or deaf experience and present theatre in unique and creative ways.
After many years of international spotlight with his work, Jesús decided to relocate his young family to the sanctuary of the northwest, which led him to several years of service as a Director at a therapeutic boarding school. Jesús embraces reinventing himself and found the opportunity to join Innercept in alignment with his own values of diversity and holistic connection.
