CJ's career for the better part of 20 years was with Exmar Offshore in Houston, Texas, where he held various positions in design, piping, structural, PDMS administrator, and Mechanical Design Lead. He was a highly valued employee. He was employed with his father's company, Profit Performance Group, in 2003 but returned to Exmar Offshore in 2006.

CJ was an accomplished (self-taught) guitarist, mastering the guitar, writing songs, with one recorded by a local artist in the late 1990s. He was lead guitarist with notable bands in the surrounding area. Gifted with many talents, CJ created computer software, designed a unique pick-up for guitars, and was always thinking of a useful new product, whether it be grocery bags or facial products.

CJ adored his sons and his family. He had numerous friends in the music world and was a huge fan of the Houston Texans, creating a Facebook page, joined by thousands, called "Texans and Cowboys Rivalry." An outgoing personality, CJ always had a smile, joking and cutting up with family and friends. He lived life to the fullest.
