Jesus Quintero

Jesus Quintero was born in Yuba City, California, a rural town in the Central Valley. The son of immigrants who were a part of the Brasero program, Jesus spent his whole life working in the fields: peach, prune, apple, and honeydew. It is through the hardships of immigrants, the dilapidated work camps and rotting fruit that inspires him to write. He lives with his amazing wife, Raquel, and his lil' man, Dario. He teaches English at Vista Community College and goes dummy with the youngstas at Youth UPrising.
