A native of the Dominican Republic, Jose Ramirez emigrated to the United States when he was 25. Like many cultivating a new life, he put himself through school and learned English. After he and his wife, Elba, relocated to NY from Florida, they were in search of a church. A friend mentioned SRC and after visiting they knew this was a place they and their four children , Crystal (22), Kiara (14), Gabby (10) and Brian (9), could connect with. Serving as a greeter has been a blessing and a perfect fit for Jose’s gregarious personality as he enjoys meeting new people. Jose is a sports enthusiast, especially golf, which he plans on teaching his family. Jose, thank you for welcoming people into our SRC family on Sunday mornings!
