Raymond Jaquez, founder of Gicco New York LLC, was born in San José de las Matas, Dominican Republic. He emigrated to the United States at the age of twelve years old and soon began his studies in public school. During his leisure time, Raymond dedicated himself to collecting bottles that he will later sell to help sustain him and his family. This will be one of many jobs during his adolescence. Raymond’s great strength and perseverance was forming his entrepreneurial character as a businessman and with a new and innovative perspective on life, it consolidated him as the great entrepreneur man that he is today.
Raymond’s personal improvement and achievements have always gone hand-in-hand with his desire to help others form a better society. His priorities have always been the youth and their families without placing any discrimination against sex, color, race or religion. For these reasons, he works with the Love Without Barriers JCL Foundation by providing support to thirty-two, free of charge, community programs available to low-income families. Raymond’s motto is, “You can do anything in life, if you have passion and perseverance.” “There are not enough barriers that could prevent you from reaching your goals; it does not matter where you come from, what matters is who you want to be!”
Furthermore, Mr. Raymond Jaquez as founder of Gicco New York LLC, has not spared in his contributions and has designated a portion of his profits to helping others. For example, he donated his own home to purchase a bigger piece of land so more people will have access to all the community programs available to them. Also, driven by his passion for the youth; Raymond brought for the first time to New York one of the most recognized European Soccer teams in the world, El Atletico de Madrid to carry out and establish a Soccer Camp for years to come. The first Camp, was held in July of 2018 and all its participants had an unforgettable experience; they learned that it is possible to dream big.
