— Jose about Carl Johnson

Jose is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Jose is a member of the Varrios Los Aztecas gang. Jose seems to be a very good friend of Cesar Vialpando as he shows him respect when he tried to attack CJ for insulting Cesar and he says that Carl is lucky that Cesar has spoken for him.

Events of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Jose was seen encountering and taunting Carl Johnson after a lowrider competition. After Carl pushed Cesar for kissing his sister, Jose arrives to the place and tells Carl to "fuck off", until he was stopped by Cesar himself. Cesar says that 'this is important to him'. Jose then leaves the place, saying that he is thirsty. He is not seen anymore.

The snitch, moments before being killed.

  • Jose's model is reused in The Introduction, when T-Bone Mendez is seen beating a suspected snitch to death.
  • He is one of the very few minor characters in the 3D Universe who has a unique model, instead of a generic pedestrian one.
  • Due to the fact that he does not appear in Los Desperados and Cesar mentions many of his friends being dead or in hiding, it might be possible that he was murdered sometime after The Green Sabre.
