Bio: Jose Humberto Meza was born in Cook County, Illinois. Jose was raised in Chicago where he met his best friends and threw the best basement parties and overprotected his sister.

In 2009, Jose and his parents relocated to Rosita, Coahuila, Mexico where he proceeded to scare his mom by popping wheelies on his motorcycle.

In 2012, Jose moved to San Antonio to be closer to family. Two short years later on one summer day, Cristina tripped and fell into Jose's life.

Jose's biggest dream was to be a law enforcement officer. In December of 2015, Jose graduated from the San Antonio College Law Enforcement Academy. In July of 2016, Jose began to fulfill his dream and was sworn in as a Llano County Sheriff Deputy.

Jose married his wife Cristina Silva on September 16, 2016. In November 2017, Jose became a father to Mia Isabella, the cutest little girl around, and she had him wrapped around her little finger since her first breath.

On December 14, 2018, Jose was sworn in as a patrol officer with the City of Burnet Police Department. Jose, Cristina and Mia relocated to Burnet where Mia began attending a new school.

Six short months after joining Burnet Police Department, Jose applied for the K-9 handler position and was granted the opportunity to go to work with his best friend, Kuso. Kuso and Jose made the best team and they made many arrests together.
