Caesar was born in New York City in 1963 to Cuban immigrant, Juan Batista Gonzales, and Puerto Rican citizen Carmen Robinson.
When Caesar was three years old, his mom left, leaving Caesar and his three siblings to be raised by his father and eventual step-mother. Simply put, life at home was abusive and horrible.
In the seventh grade, Caesar was removed from the home by Child Protective Services and placed in foster care. Life continued to be a struggle, and as a ward of the state, Caesar was relocated to St. Mary’s of the Angels (boys) Home in 1978 where he met Mark Rosenthal, a social worker, and motorcycle enthusiast. Rosenthal gave Caesar purpose and direction and encouraged him to learn how to build and repair motorcycles.
This now purposeful-driven life led Caesar to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1996, where he began a professional motorcycle racing career as a racer and mechanic. He also became an advocate for victims of child abuse and shares how he overcame a tragic childhood to a life of accomplished dreams and happiness.
After writing his Autobiography, Beating the Odds: An Autobiographical Rags to Racing Story and starting a motorcycle shop, Caesar returned to college at Kennesaw State University (KSU), earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering. While at KSU, private American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company, Space-X, recruited and hired Caesar to work in their department of development and testing.
In early 2019, Gonzales felt that Georgia’s 13th Congressional District was failing the citizens socially and economically. He saw rising crime while other districts saw a decline, businesses were not flourishing as other districts, and the district’s representation by Congressman David Scott was misguided and misaligned with the needs of the community.
Caesar Gonzales sees a brighter future for Georgia and America and desires to take this message to Washington and fight to Make the 13th Congressional District Great Again!
“I am an ardent supporter of Constitutional Carry and ensuring the preservation of the Second Amendment.”
