The Things I Can’t Live Without | Ron “Rondo” Fernandez

Ron "Rondo" Fernandez shares the things he can't live without


Rondo is the owner of The Mojo Grill & Catering Co. and can’t live without his own extra grilled and extra wet chicken wings. He is very involved in outreaches such as providing meals in appreciation of first responders and supporting youth and says he gets his strength from his family. “Everything I do, I do for them,” he shares. “I love them more than words can say.”



My faith guides me every day. God will speak to you in different ways at different times. I am so grateful for what he has done in my life.


Breathing Into Our Youth

I absolutely love coaching and working through the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and in what we do with The Rock Program, which provides school supplies, food, toiletries, clothing and more to local students in need.



Cuban Coffee

It’s a must every day! It’s my Cuban tradition. I say “I love you, Dad” before my first cup as a way to remember him and all the times we had it together. Latin American Café and Café Havana have great Cuban coffee.


Miami Hurricanes Football

I love every team from Miami, but the Hurricanes have my heart. I even named my son Cane after them! Hopefully we will get back to where we need to be soon.



Blues and Soul Music

Music is my outlet. I love to sing and make music. I love the rawness of blues and soul. My biggest influences are Otis Redding and Gregg Allman. My favorite place to sing is at the Reilly Arts Center.
