Jorge has been coaching since 2001. He has been a coach for AYSO, the Sheriff Activities League, four years as a Juventus coach and also the Madera Roja Club team in Redwood City for U9 boys. This is his 2nd year coaching at WHS as the JV soccer coach. Jorge grew up playing street soccer and played a bit of Club Soccer in his youth. Jorge graduated from Sequoia High School, and took courses at Canada College in Computer Science, before becoming a trades men and union member working in construction. Coaching is his passion (he did it for 14 years for free!) and if he could change just one life for the better, through accomplishing goals set in sports, he says it is all worth it, “it takes only one person to make the world a better place.” Outside of coaching he has been a volunteer school district mentor for middle school students for 4 years in San Jose for a program started by then San Jose Mayor Gonzalez.
