Rey has been a 49er fan since the age of 5 when his dad took him to his first 49er home game. He embodies what a 49er fan should resemble. When asked what does it mean to be a 49er fan he immediately responded "Niners are life, it's more than a fan base it's a family!" Rey has also started the Forever Faithful Azteca clothing brand and tailgate chapter for LatinX 49ers fans. Now his chapter helps connect other chapters and 49er fans from all around the world!
When Rey was young his eye was injured in an assault incident and he had to go through 30-40 surgeries from the ages of 15 to 30 years old. At 30 his sensitivity to light became so unbearable that he went to the doctor and found out he had cancer and that they needed to remove his eye before the cancer spread. First thing he asked is if his prosthetic eye could be 49er branded! He also is an aspiring rap artist by the name of "Eye of the Niner" with several music videos out currently.
Lastly Rey organizes a Toy Drive to help farm workers in the 831 community with the goal of getting toys to underprivileged kids in that community.
