Jose’s passion for music superseded all and started his music career as a drummer at age 12. Jose, known to many as “Chiquio,” was a drummer for many Tejano bands such as Texana, Machismo, Tony Hernandez, and the Broken Hearts just to name a few. He was proud of having played with Tejano Legends, Sunny Ozuna, Freddie Martinez, and Augustin Ramirez. Jose’s God-given talent and legacy as an amazing drummer and musician will continue to live on in the musical talents of his sons and grandsons. Jose will be missed by all who knew him, but his love of life, music and laughter will forever live in our hearts and memories.
