Who is Tito?
A Man of the Knights
Tito joined the Knights in 2000. He served his local council, Valladolid #70, as Grand Knight for two years, the Order as a District Deputy, and now he seeks State Office due to his desire to give back.
Tito’s love for the Knights has prompted him to work hard to expand his home council in the city Lynn, across the state as State Hispanic Council Growth Coordinator, and as State Council Reactivation Coordinator.
He has served his own council by working calling at Bingo, leading rosaries, organizing a Pro-Life Novena, serving on degree teams in two languages, serving as an 4th degree honor guard member, holding officer positions at the council and assembly, volunteering at My Brother’s Table, free throw, cornhole, and golf tournaments.
During a speech awarding Tito his council’s Knight of the Year award, GK Matthew Harrington said of Tito “I cannot list every way that this brother has lived out the principles of charity, unity, and fraternity. But I know I look to him as an exemplar of how to be a good Catholic Knight.”
A Man of the Faith
Tito finds his Catholic faith at the center of his identity. While raised Catholic, the Knights actually helped stir up a new appreciation of his faith. While Tito was first drawn to his local council by their pool tables, his involvement in the council actually helped draw him closer to Christ and the Church, because his brothers insisted that he be confirmed before receiving his third degree. Now Tito attends Mass weekly at St. Pius in Lynn where he serves as a Catechist and lector.
A Man of Community
While he engages with the local community through his Church and Knight’s council, his community engagement goes beyond this. Tito is a proud graduate of Lynn Tech and he continues to support his alma mater as an advisor on a technical education committee. Using the skills he learned at the Tech, Tito currently owns and operates his own business CNC Autowerks based near the Salem Lynn line.
Tito supports his community through the Beverly Elks, but his commitment to the Knights has always come first.
Projects and Accomplishments
Hispanic Council Growth
Tito has served the State Council as Hispanic Council Growth Coordinator. In this role he has worked hard to both help existing councils reach out to hispanic communities in their area as well as help hispanic communities establish their own councils. As part of this work, Tito has served as a degree team member in both Spanish and English for degrees both in person and online via zoom.
District Deputy Service
Since Tito became a District Deputy he has worked diligently to assist his councils especially during the pandemic. He works to keep his councils updated on State events and the events of other local councils so that each council can support the others.
He has missed visiting councils physically during the pandemic, but has been happy to join them virtually. Now he looks forward to helping them come out of the pandemic stronger than ever.
His work has led to the reactivation of the Lawrence council.
