When Christopher saw what happened to our country on 9/11, he answered the call of service and stepped up to fight for our country as a United States Marine.
Christopher served two combat tours in Iraq – he was among the first marines to push into Baghdad at the start of the war. During his second tour in Fallujah attached to 2nd Battalion, First Marines, Christopher sustained injuries when a rocket-propelled grenade hit his platoon. Sergeant Rodriguez was awarded the Purple Heart, but was unable to return to combat warfare due to his injuries.
Returning to California after his military service, Christopher entered the real estate business. He learned quickly, opened his own office, and was recognized as one of the top Hispanic Realtors in the nation. His family settled down and purchased a farm in South Morro Hills which he manages with his wife, Sarah. They grow guava, passion fruit, avocados, and coffee which they sell locally under the Rodriguez Family Farms brand.
Christopher also serves as an Oceanside City Council Member where he has pushed for lower taxes, job creation and common-sense solutions to fix the homeless crisis plaguing California cities.
The Rodriguez family is a busy household with Christopher and his wife Sarah, 7 kids, 4 dogs, and a pot-bellied pig named Bacon.
