Jose Cubias was an immigrant who fled from a civil war in El Salvador. He passed away in December 2020 from COVID-19, leaving behind a wife and two daughters.

Jose Cubias was a sweet, light-hearted good man who dedicated himself to taking great care of his family. 32 years ago, he fled a civil war in El Salvador to give his wife a better life in the United States. Jose lived a humble life. While he never had lots of money in his pockets, he never hesitated to give and help those in need. In his memory, the Jose “Sixto” Cubias Scholarship will support immigrant students of first-generation Americans of Central American descent.
