I’m Orlando and I’m originally from California. I came to Arizona 30yrs ago for two days and it was SO HOT, I told myself never again. But, about ten years ago I did move here and make my start in the auto industry. I live with a home full of women from 1yr old to 55yrs. My mission in life is helping people and finding their wants and needs. The thing I’ve always wanted to do most is become a missionary in some foreign land.

My name is Jose Rascon, and I have been a resident of Mesa, Arizona my whole life.  I have developed an extreme passion for cars, whether it is domestic or foreign, modified or stock.  There is something in every market that sparks my interest and excites me.  I used to spend most of my time riding BMX bikes, throughout my childhood.  Now, the freedom of engine powered vehicles has really taken over, but, I can still appreciate the art of a clean tail whip down El Toro!  I am excited to be a part of Riverview Toyota and look forward to the opportunities this great dealership has to offer…
