José, 32, encountered the Jesuits at age 18 when he attended a retreat in Miami. He earned his bachelor’s in philosophy as a lay student at Saint John Vianney Seminary College, where professors introduced him to great Catholic thinkers and gave him a deep appreciation for his faith. Believing his life would only be fulfilled within a framework of service, José later worked with Catholic Charities. In his free time, he enjoys watching movies and TV shows.
