Conoce a José E. Fernández
For 40 years, he has been at the center of Puerto Rico’s economic development as an innovator of financial planning investments strategies and an aggressive force in the island’s banking industry. During these years, he also focused his efforts on supporting low income talented students by providing them with the necessary resources to overcome economic limitations in order to achieve excellence at the highest academic levels.
His most recent accomplishment is Kinesis Foundation and Kinesis IT Academy, which he created with his wife Mary Jane and his family in 2004. Kinesis is a public education foundation 509(a)1 that seeks to transform Puerto Rico through education, helping outstanding students from the public schools, providing them with cutting-edge academic tools for each academic level. Kinesis with its educational services, technology and leadership, has helped bridge the gap for students between college admission requirements and the top 100 universities in the United States, Puerto Rico and the world. Kinesis has directly impacted over 15,000 students and their families.
Together with his foundation, Mr. Fernandez has awarded over 1,600 scholarships. In Notre Dame he established the ND Kinesis Scholarship to bring more students from Puerto Rico to Notre Dame. He also established the ND Kinesis Endowed Undergraduate Fellowship and the ND Kinesis Endowed Graduate Fellowship.
Mr. Fernández was honored and humbled to receive in 2004 the "Pro Ecclesia et Pontifices" Medal awarded to him by Pope John Paul II recognizing his service to the Roman Catholic Church. In 1998, he received the Alexis de Tocqueville Humanitarian Award awarded by the United Way.
Among his recent awards are The Chamber of Commerce 2019 Zenith Award for Institution of the Year to Kinesis, the 2019 Youth Commitment Award from the Economic Development and Trade Department, the 2019 Guide Star Platinum Seal also granted to the foundation, the Sales Marketing and Executive Association award and the 2019 Recognition by the Education Department of the University of Puerto Rico (UPR).
For his inspiring career of achievement and services to Puerto Rico, Fernández is considered a transcendental figure in Puerto Rico’s education and economy.
