Meet Angel Dejesus

Angel M. Dejesus believes the staff and resources of the Kirstein Business Library & Innovation Center at the Boston Public Library played a significant role in his highly successful career shift from the hospitality industry to commercial and residential real estate.

As a child he grew up around the corner from the Roxbury Branch and visited regularly. In some ways, it was only natural that as an adult he would look to Kirstein as a place to study and find financial books to read.

“Now I’m living the American Dream,” says Angel. “Because of the Boston Public Library’s free business classes and computer workshops, I acquired helpful skills and many books that enabled me to grow my business tremendously.”
