Jorge and the Cetlalic family collaborated with us for the last 20 years in heritage seeking, study abroad programs to Cuernavaca, Mexico. Jorge, an anthropologist by trait, was an amazing teacher, student, fighter, comedian, husband, father, good friend and mentor who taught us about commitment, struggle and humanity.
Jorge reached hundreds of students and shared his knowledge of Latin American social movements, indigenous history and Mexican political, education and economic systems. He left an impact on many, influencing the identity and of many Chicano and DACA students. He was a gran communicator of ideas and information. On most days, Jorge could be found in the Cetlalic office connecting with students, faculty and community members and always with a smile. His work lives on in all of us. Jorge Presente!
