Born in Los Angeles and raised in West San Diego, California by his adopted family, 28-year-old Jay “The Bull” Maximiliano grew up in what would be considered quite a troubled area; with heightened crime rates and gang life in the neighbourhood, it was easy for 8-year-old Jay to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
In 2015, after many years of searching for his biological family, Jay found them in Calgary. This motivated him to make the move from the United States to Canada, where he currently stays. Currently, Jay is well known for his influencer status on Instagram (@Jay.thebull.maximiliano) with 30K followers.

Jay is also known for his modeling and future business plans, which include opening a resource centre for struggling members of society. More specifically, Jay wants to find ways to ease the lives of people living with cancer. He dreams of offering support for those struggling with the financial burdens, medical expenses, housing, and financial education. Jay’s latest initiative will be to start a podcast called “Unforgettable Value”, which will be a series of episodes based around Jay’s lived experiences from childhood until now. The podcast is set to be released on April 15, 2022.
