Commissioner Jose M. Diaz was born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba, where he spent his childhood and teenage years. At the age of eighteen, Mr. Diaz obtained an Associate Degree in Agriculture. Due to his great achievements and his passion for teaching, he was chosen to teach Entomology and Plant Pathology in the same school he graduated.

Currently, Mr. Diaz is working as a Spanish Education teacher at the Young Women’s Preparatory Academy, a single gender public magnet school, and is also looking forward to completing his Master's Degree in Education.
