Jesus is a California native who came to Philadelphia a decade ago to pursue his interests in music and community organizing. Originally trained as a chef, Jesus moved to the Northwest in search of fresh air and found Queenie’s. Jesus grew up around many dogs and cats. His grandfather set a compassionate example to Jesus from an early age, taking in stray animals, and teaching Jesus how to take care of them.
Jesus lives with his wife and two cats, Clementine and Blanco. He says one of the things he loves the most about working at Queenie’s is the opportunity to explore the trails on walks with the dogs. He enjoys nature photography, collecting vintage vinyl, fishing, and composing music on his electronic drum machine. He has a green thumb and enjoys tending to his indoor herb and chili garden
Jesus has been on Team Queenie’s since 2018.
