Diligent, Ambitious, Altruistic

You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

- Marcus Aurelius, Meditations



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.
The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (49ers SLI) provides multi-year, year-round academic support, STEM enrichment, skills training, and leadership opportunities to students in middle and high school. Students, who are with the program for six years from 7th through 12th grade, commit annually to 300+ hours of program learning time in addition to their typical school hours. By cultivating student mastery in STEM subjects and in key skill areas, the program prepares students for college and empowers them to pursue their passions; so that they may become the well-rounded leaders of the future. The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute is made possible by the strong partnership between Silicon Valley Education Foundation, 49ers Foundation, Chevron, and the Santa Clara Unified School District.
