When he was a boy, Jose Molina attended golf camps at the Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation in Clearwater, where he learned not only the game of golf but life skills as well.

Molina's love of sports has brought him full circle with his recent appointment as the foundation's program services coordinator.

He also coaches club volleyball for Pinellas Heat in his spare time.

Born and raised in North Pinellas, Molina graduated from East Lake High School in 2009 and received a bachelor of science degree in business administration and marketing from the University of Central Florida.

While attending classes, he completed a 300-hour promotional internship with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment.
