Jose was nominated because of his actions while on a summer school field trip to Oakland Beach. Jose noticed that one of the students went in over her head and did not come back up. Without hesitation Jose ran into the water and using skills he learned in the SERT program brought the girl to the beach. Seeing she was unresponsive he began the CPR cycle. She began to breathe on her own and was transported to the hospital. She made a full recovery.
