Jorge Mas Canosa
Birth: Sep. 21, 1939
Santiago de Cuba, Cuba
Death: Nov. 23, 1997
Miami
Miami-Dade County
Florida, USA

Social Reformer. In his prime, Mas Canosa was by many the most influential Cuban American in the United States. Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Bill Clinton consulted him whenever a matter of Cuban policy was on the table. Prior to his death, polls showed that among older Cuban Americans Mas Canosa was unparalleled in popularity. He was also a leading businessman and multi-millionaire in the nation’s Cuban-American community of 1.5 million people. He had some to the United States in 1960 as a penniless Cuban immigrant fleeing the regime of Fidel Castro. It was a cause he passionately campaigned against for the rest of his life. (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)
