Jose Trinidad Marin career

Jose Trinidad Marin, aka Jose, did not have any stable job when he initially started his career. He was struggling for years to have the perfect life he wanted. Unlike her wife, he is an ordinary man and works like one.

He used to work in several places to make ends meet when he first met Jenni. However, since he got married early, he now has to work for 3 people because his wife was pregnant before she got married. So he started looking for everything he could do and finally got a job in a restaurant as a manager.

This job gave him freedom and relief to support himself and his family decently. Unfortunately, there is no more information available about his career, but we know he was into business and did earn a good amount of money.

He wanted Jenni to stay at home and look after the house and kids, which Jenni didn’t want. So maybe that’s how the conflicts started, and they got separated.

Jose was reported to easily move on after getting divorced and started his life again on proper terms.

Is Jose Trinidad Marin still in jail?

Jose Trinidad, famous as the ex-celebrity spouse, has been sentenced to jail for 31 years. After the couple Jose and Jenni got separated in 1992, talks came out that he sexually abused his girls Chiquis and Jacquelin.

It was also heard that he even sexually assaulted his ex sister in Law Rosie. Further, in 1997 Jenni’s sister Rosie confessed that her sister’s husband has been sexually molesting her for a long time and had been doing the same with his children as well.

Marin accepted all the charges that have been pointed towards him, because of which he was sentenced to jail for 31 years in the year 2007 with no parole. Since this happened in 2006 and for 31 years, Jose must be in jail till now and will be there for some more years.

However, there were rumors that he had come out of jail for his good deeds in 2018, but no one confirmed it, and the news was not clear enough. His lawyer even denied it clearly.

Even her daughter confesses in an interview that,

“I’ve heard that but haven’t talked to him. He hasn’t confirmed anything to me. I haven’t been able to see him. So we’ll see what happens. I don’t have much to say because IDK if that’s true.”

We assume he hasn’t been out yet, and that’s what he deserved for doing bad to the kids and their aunt.

Does Chiquis Rivera talk to her dad?

Jose Trinidad Marin, the father of singer Chiquis Rivera, was sentenced to jail for rape and harassment. He was arrested for harassing his own daughter Chiquis Marin Rivera and her aunt Rosie however, it seems like that she has forgiven her dad for doing so.

The singer was seen sharing an emotional video on her YouTube channel where Jose was calling her on her wedding day straight from jail. She shared that her father, Jose, is trying to have a meaningful conversation with his daughter, who will be a beautiful bride, while he is still in jail serving for his bad deeds.

Chiquis even shared the call with her younger sister saying, “Hi Dad, I have your little girl here.” We guess they had an emotional talk because her younger sister Jacquelin was happy yet nervous enough to hear from her dad.

 Jose says,

I wish you happiness and for everything to go well for you.

He even advised that marriages are hard but give your best to them to make them stay. She even requested her father to send them prayers, and everyone listened while Jose asked God to bless her daughter and her marriage for a lifetime and wish her all the happiness in the world.

The younger girl of Jenni even met her dad in 2017 and shared pictures of them on Instagram. She thinks he should be given one more chance for everything he did and should not be hated the way he is.

Everything mentioned above clearly shows how much the children love their dad and have forgiven him even when he was very wrong. After all, it’s a child’s heart. Also, we can believe that Jose has accepted what he did was wrong and maybe is trying to change himself for their children’s love.
