Esteban Jimenez

Esteban Jimenez is a venezuelan entrepreneur, CEO and founder of two companies dedicated to restoring and modify cars, Luxtires and ForceMotorsport. He dreamed about it his entire life, since he was a child, he wanted to dedicate his life and career to cars and motorcycles. From a very young age, he was surrounded by friends and family that encourage and support him in his passion. Esteban tells us first-hand how his childhood and his closeness to people and jobs related to the area, influenced his preparation to become the successful man he is today.

He was born in Venezuela. Since he was a little child, his parents, Yolimar Romer and Luis Jimenez involved him in the business of restoring and modification and restoration of cars, because it was the family business of them. “I grew up surrounded and exposed to that environment because my father’s family have always worked on it.”

In fact, he started working at a very early age: “my first job was in my 14, with my dad at a bodyshop restoring and repairing cars. That was my first experience in the area, and even if I was very young and the activities were more as an assistant, I can consider it my first learning, and later, it will be what motivates me to keep learning, this experience gave me the passion for what I do today. My childhood was very happy, and the more I got close to the world of cars, the more I got passionate about”

His father was the first one who gave him the opportunity of getting involved in the area, that is why he became and he has always been his model to follow. “He was a good father, he always believed in me so he gave me the examples needed to improve my skills”. Esteban also followed closely the careers of Foose and Richard Rawlings.

When ha was a teenager, his relatives always support him, and they were the ones that convinced him to work as an independent, and then he could finally found his first company in Venezuela, dedicated to the car`s restoration and transformation. At that moment, it was a very good business opportunity in that country, because the company offered a brand-new service in the Venezuelan market.

The knowledge he acquired in Venezuela gave him the opportunity to found two companies in Miami, Florida, where he lives since 2016, Luxtires and ForceMotorsport, where he keeps innovating and creating techniques and equipments for his customers.

Knowing a little more about his early years, he considers that his experiences became him into the man he is today: “there are good and bad experiences in life, but all of them teach you something to make you a better person, and everything that happened in my life made me decide that I wanted to work on this, for me and for my family. This is what I love, and if I can help others to reach things they want for them, why wouldn’t I? If I can give an advice, there it goes: if you have a dream, that you truly believe it can get better and you will produce something useful for others, then work for that. If you want that and work for that, you will achieve it. Everything is possible”

George Pelgrim donates new bus to the elderly

Published

With many things going on in the world, from geopolitics to climate change, it is easy to forget the individual people making a difference on a daily basis in our local communities. Today we’re happy to be sharing a story of how Mr. George Pelgrim has donated a brand new bus to “The Home Away from Home Taking Care of The Golden Age”, and the senior citizens living there.

Today the foundation has more than a hundred people working to make life a little easier for the elderly, and provides a great community service that benefits not just the people living there, but also their families, as well as the people working for the foundation.

Initial fundraising

The project was first put into motion back in 2017, where the foundation started fundraising for a new bus. Originally they contacted local businesses to ask for their support, and slowly the worked their way up to an impressive $4,000. But then Hurricane Irma came along and changed things on St. Maarten, and the fundraising efforts faded out due to more urgent things.

Once the aftermath of Hurrican Irma was winding down, and people resuming a semblance of their regular lives, a new life changing indicent took place. Covid-19. Once more, fundraising for the bus took a back seat, with the focus now being shifted on helping people affected by the global virus.

But all things that are worth doing, are worth doing right. And so The Golden Age foundation stayed patient, and once the wave of Covid-19 ebbed out, they resumed their efforts on fundraising. In this wave of fundraising, they got in contact with Mr. George Pelgrim. He had already a long track record of philanthropy and providing for the local community in St. Maarten, and from there things moved fast.

With the added contribution from Mr. George Pelgrim, as well as the other generous sponsors, finally the foundation reached their goal of being able to afford a new bus for the elderly living at the Home Away from Home. The foundation plans to use the bus for excursions into nature, for outdoor activities and even various errands when the seniors have the need to go somewhere far away.

“We are thankful for people like Mr. George Pelgrim, who do great things for our community.  St. Maarten is a small island, but it’s full of people with big hearts.  St. Maarten should be proud when things like this happen” – Samuel Lake.

The partnership between The Golden Age Foundation and George Pelgrim will only get better and continue to do bigger things on St. Maarten.  According to the foundation’s president Patricia Flanders, the official presentation ceremony of the brand new Toyota Bus will take place in May 2022.  Members of the press and other sponsoring partners will be present at the event to witness the official unveiling of the new bus.  George Pelgrim has arranged for the bus to be wrapped, displaying the logos of the other sponsors who contributed to The Golden Age Foundation.

“I am so happy to be a part of such a worthy cause.” – George Pelgrim

Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager Launches Chess Co-Operative In Denton County Texas

Published

on

Sanger resident Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager has been enthusiastic about chess from an early age. And through years of practice and dedication, he has now achieved a professional level of expertise in the game. Now, he wants to share his knowledge and love for chess with others too.

Therefore, Tristan is going to conduct a pro-chess operation in his locality, Denton County, Texas. Here, he aims to spread his passion for the game. At the same, he hopes that the local youngsters acquire some of the qualities that playing chess has granted him. Such as a sharper mind, strategic thinking, and perseverance.

Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager: Early Life

Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager lives in Sanger. Although he spent his childhood in Haslet, Texas. The city has a population of only 1600 people. And the area is around twenty-three square kilometers. However, despite its small size, the city still has its parts in two counties- Tarrant County and Denton County, Texas

This small town was Tristan’s home when he was a kid. As a child, he always had a knack for the outdoors and sports. Therefore, he spent much of his childhood as a boy scout. The adventurous and active life of scouts held much appeal to him. And he always excelled in the scouting activities.

Apart from scouting, Tristan’s other childhood passion was baseball. He was a promising player from the beginning. On the local baseball team, he was a valued member and a much sought-after player. Plus, the sport taught Tristan important lessons on physical and mental toughness.

Scouting and baseball both laid the necessary physical and mental foundation that would help Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager later in his life to carry on his social work.

Taking Up Chess

Although mostly an outdoors kid, the game of chess attracted the intellectually sound mind of Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager at a very early age. Chess gave Tristan something that most sports and outdoor activities lack. And that is, playing a game of war without putting too much strain on your muscles.

Tristan saw that chess has many benefits. The black and whiteboard with its sixty-four squares and thirty-two pieces opened up a new world for the boy. First of all, he saw that chess lets him use his immense energy in a more focused and useful way. As a result, he was spending less time outdoors and getting in fewer troubles.

Secondly, chess lets him use the muscle that has lesser application in baseball and scouting- the intellectual mind. As he got more into the game, Tristan discovered that chess is making his mind sharper.

Plus, it was teaching him to solve conflicts and conduct his business with strategies and logical thinking. In short, chess was his transition to maturity. Or, one might say chess forged Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager into the calm, composed intellectual that he is today.

Yeager’s Chess Co-Operative In Denton County Texas

When Yeager was growing up in his hometown and learning to play chess, there was one thing that used to make him sad. And that is he had no one to play with. Because in that small town in Denton County, Texas, few adults knew how to play chess properly. So, it’s no wonder there weren’t many young chess players around.

So, Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager is creating a chess club for the young people in that locality. And his visions are both noble and ambitious.

Firstly, he wants the youngsters to benefit from chess the same way he had back when he was growing up. Tristan believes that chess is going to make the club participants sharper in mind and improve their strategic thinking skills. And as he has experienced, the game turns its players into mature individuals.

At the same time, a chess club can be a great spot for young people to socialize and connect with like-minded people. And consequently, it will encourage them to keep away from drugs and petty crimes.

Conclusion

Tristan Michaelangelo Yeager believes that starting a chess club in his locality is one of the best initiatives that can be taken to improve the lives of young people. However, that doesn’t mean this club is going to limit itself to only Denton and Sanger.

Under his conduct and guidance, Tristan’s chess initiatives shall spread to other areas too.
