Jesus has roots that run deep in Arizona; born, raised, and educated in the Valley, earning his bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University. He began his professional career working for the non-profit Teach for America, rising to a manager with that organization before branching out and joining DBL. What started as a temporary position as a runner on the DBL team has blossomed into what Jesus hopes is a long and rewarding career. His first title with DBL was Head of Strategic Initiatives. Jesus quickly bloomed into an effective leader for the team, becoming Vice President of Operations in 2019 and was promoted to Vice President in 2021. With his educational background and professional experience working with non-profit organizations, Jesus brings a different perspective to the team, one built on the cornerstone of service to the client. During his time at DBL, Jesus has continued his education and obtained industry certifications including Smartscape: A training for Landscape Professionals, Sustainable Landscape Management and he completed the Cornell University Emerging Leaders Program. When not at DBL, Jesus enjoys spending time exploring Arizona and working on his small little homestead in the Valley, raising KuneKune Pigs and Nigerian Dwarf Goats.
