Jose's work with Tito is an experience that he will never forget. "Tito is the last living legend from Mexico and the Golden Era of Hollywood."

Aside from Jose's work with many artists and celebrities, Jose's UFO experiences that occurred at Midway, New Mexico on March 5,1994, have put him on a variety of lectures and television and radio programs talking about the subject.
