Executive Chef, El Gaucho Tacoma

Jesus joined El Gaucho family in 2001, and was recently promoted to Executive Chef at El Gaucho Tacoma. Having a huge passion for food, and proven that he is a quick learner, Jesus has worked his way up the ranks from dishwasher to Sous Chef through notable area restaurants, including Black Angus, Pacific Grill, and Daniel’s Broiler. When the offer to become El Gaucho Tacoma’s Executive Chef came, Jesus was reluctant, but Corporate Executive Chef Ken Sharp confidently assured Jesus he could do it; and he’s very grateful for the opportunity.

Jesus was born in Mexico, but has lived most of his life in California and Washington. He loves spending time with his beautiful family and Chihuahua, and in his spare time enjoys green enchiladas, reading cooking books, and grilling at home.
