Fabian J. Amezquita, better know as Fabio Jay, was born in Peru in 1994. He came to the US at the age of 6 and is fluent in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. In 2015, Fabio’s life was changed forever when he was in a horrible car accident which left him clinically dead for three hours. Now, Fabio lives with a condition called degenerate disc disease and 6 herniated discs.
In addition to being a successful model, he’s a teacher and football coach. This past February Fabio was featured in two NYFW shows. In 2019, he was the cover model for the May issue of ThatSplashMag.
Fabio’s greatest strength is his ability to motivate people through his life journey. He constantly encourages people through his testimony and ability to never be held back by his injuries.
