THE STORY:

Jonathan Garcia was born and raised in Bronx, New York,  often spending time in Brooklyn. 

Jonathan is Smart, witty, loving, passionate, and  driven to accomplish and overcome anything that gets in his way.  He stays focused and driven both in and outside the ring as maintains focus withclear,  set goals always  in sight.

A line  from the movie:  Rocky exemplifies Jonathan’s life:“ it isn’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get it and move forward, that’s how winning is done” .

Although it may sound silly, Jonathan  feels these words best   sum up his life. 

Jonathan  started boxing when he trained  in Johnny Rodz world of unpredictable wrestling at Gleasons Gym. Jonathan was inspired to Box as he watched boxers fight as he was enamored by what he observed . He welcomed the  experience as he accepted a  new challenge.

His  heroes are the everyday people who do positive things for the greater good.  His heroes are those who fight for the weak and overcome the odds and adversity, just as Jonathan has his entire life as he rose above negativity  from naysayers who predicted he would fail.       

He admires  the character of the superhero, batman as he admires individuals like himself who work hard to make the world a safer, nicer place.  Charity and giving back to others is essential for Jonathan.  

His greatest achievement includes  earning his degrees and becoming a physician assistant in orthopedic surgery.

Jonathan currently resides in Bronx, New York.
