Born in Barcelona Spain, Jesus discovered his true vocation in Sydney, Australia at the age of eighteen. There, he enrolled to his first professional acting course at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA).
In 2004, after a year back in Barcelona, he quit his engineering studies for the prestigious Drama School Institut del Teatre de Barcelona. His insatiable appetite for acting then took him to the HB Studio in New York during the summers of 2005 and 2007 where he studied with Edward Morehouse, Jim Boerlin and Carol Rosenfeld, among others. In 2009 he received a scholarship to the Rose Bruford College of Theater and Performance in London.
Following the drama degree, his interest in other languages and cultures encouraged him to explore Rome, Italy where he spent five months and then over a year in Reunion Island, France.
Apart from the many theatre plays since his beginning years as an actor, Jesus has worked in countless short films with young filmmakers throughout Spain, Italy, France, England and the U.S. His first professional role in the TV series "Pelotas" by Jose Corbacho and Juan Cruz led to feature films such as "Yo soy la Juani" directed by Bigas Luna, "Sing for Darfur" by Johan Kramer and "Messi" by Alex de la Iglesia.
Jesus' first lead role came in 2013 with the character driven road-movie "Tercer Grado" (Day Release) directed by Geoffrey Cowper. He plays Mark Rodriguez, a young troubled man on his first weekend parole in five years who under extreme circumstances tries to make peace with his older brother Toni. The film and Jesus' performance received multiple International awards and Jesus himself presented the film in different movie Theatres throughout Spain, the U.S., China, Canada, Germany, etc.
In early 2017 Jesus moved to Los Angeles, California to soon land his first American lead in the feature film "Black Flowers" directed by the British director Martin Gooch.
In 2018 Jesus also landed a recurring role in the 3rd season of “La casa de Papel” (aka Money Heist), the most successful non-English Drama Series of the history of Netflix. The 3rd season premiered worldwide July 19, 2019.
