Cesar’s “Why”

Cesar enjoys spending time with his wife Liz and his many nieces and nephews. Cesar is the youngest of nine children and says, “I was the baby of the family until my nieces and nephews came along.”

In his free time, you can find him playing soccer with his coed team (Cesar was a soccer star in high school), working on do-it-yourself home improvement projects, tending to his vegetable garden, or actively participating in community organizations.
