Juan C. Velasquez was born in San Francisco, and grew up in Hercules for the past 30 years. He attended Pinole Valley High School and graduated from Cal State East Bay with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration. Growing up, math was always his favorite subject, it came easy to him, which led him to focus on a financial career. Throughout college, Juan worked for his family business, Pathway to Choices, where they assist individuals who are developmentally disabled to live independently. Little by little, he started taking on more of the financial responsibilities of the business, which provided him a lot of experience by the time of graduation. With that experience, Juan has been fortunate enough to pass on knowledge to his friends and family to make educated financial decisions. Outside of the office, Juan has been happily married to his wife Diana since 2004, and even though they do not have kids, one of their favorite things to do together is go to Disneyworld!
