- "Orale vato. Who's that pendejo?"
- ―Jose about Carl Johnson
Jose is a member of the Varrios Los Aztecas gang. Jose seems to be a very good friend of Cesar Vialpando as he shows him respect when he tried to attack CJ for insult Cesar and he says that Carl is lucky that Cesar has spoken of him.
Events of GTA San Andreas
Jose was seen encountering and taunting Carl Johnson after a lowrider competition. After Carl pushed Cesar for kissing his sister, Jose arrives to the place and tells Carl to "fuck off", until he was stopped by Cesar himself. Cesar says that 'this is important to him'. Jose then leaves the place, saying that he is thirsty.

- In The Introduction, T-Bone Mendez was beating up a suspected snitch to death. The man looks very similar to Jose as he is bald-headed and wears a white V-neck T-shirt (albeit covered in blood). The snitch, however, dies; it is unlikely that they are the same person, as the Introduction takes place before the main events of GTA San Andreas. It is also possible that Rockstar simply recycled Jose's character model and used it for the snitch in the Introduction.
- After The Green Sabre, Cesar mentions that all of his friends are either dead or in hiding; Jose is not mentioned. However, Jose seem was a high-ranking of VLA so he possibly killed by Vagos.
- In GTA IV, there is a memorial in South Bohan on Wallkill Avenue stating "Jose; In loving memory 6-10-69 -- 4-22-02". The portrait is strikingly similar to Jose's appearance in GTA San Andreas.
