Jenario has been fascinated by the way things operate, sports, professional wrestling, and anime since he was born. He even developed a habit of running and jumping in place for hours, pretending to be a football star, action hero, or wrestler. In 8th grade, Jenario dropped out of school and was struggling to find motivation. But after an academic hiatus, he finished four school-years in two calendar-years, returning to public high school for his senior year. He then became a member of the Tampa Police Explorer program, where he was immersed in the culture of law enforcement and first introduced to combat training. After graduating from high school, Jenario enrolled at Florida Poly, where he still studies. He has joined the entrepreneurship club, which has motivated him to present his idea for a wearable motion tracking device, StrikeSense.
