Before attending Downey High School, Javier attended Carpenter Elementary, Williams Elementary and Sussman Middle School. While attending Downey High School he was well liked by the staff and his peers. He was a model student and a citizen of strong character.

Javier is an active member of St. Dominic Savio Church in Bellflower, where he has been the Alter person since 2004. He is an active member of Gangs Out of Downey (GOOD) and wants young people to make healthy choices in life. He can be counted on to help distribute backpacks, attend National Night Out, Coffee with a Cop and various philanthropic golf tournaments. He attends the Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cuttings, car shows for charity, concerts in the parks and much more. Javier is also a strong supporter of our Downey Police and Fire Departments.

Recently, Javier became known as the “Unofficial Mayor of Downtown Downey” and that title has stuck because he represents what Downey is all about, supportive and uplifting its residents.
