As a member of the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute for six years, Jesus has developed a passion for math and technology. This interest is reflected in his academics, as Jesus has taken a total of 18 AP and Honors courses, with notable subjects being AP Calculus BC and AP Computer Science A. At Santa Clara High School, Jesus runs for the varsity cross country and varsity track and field teams and is the co-founder and co-president of the Political Forum Club.
Outside of school, Jesus is active in his community by tutoring students in academic subjects through non-profits such as YouTutor or by interning for the educational online platform Fiveable. He is also a violinist for the prestigious San Jose Youth Symphony Philharmonic Orchestra and uses his skills to teach music to underprivileged students in the Alum Rock Mariachi Program.
In his free time, Jesus plays guitar, exercises, and dreams of working for a tech startup in a big city.
