Son of a Cuban immigrant, Juan Carlos Esquivel was born in Caracas, Venezuela, on December 29, 1965. He has lived in Miami since he was 12 years old. During his school years, he studied at Rockway Junior and Coral Park Senior High. He attended Miami Dade College and has started pursuing an MBA in International Business at Humboldt International University. Esquivel has been married to Nancy for the past 29 years; he is a father of four and a grandfather of three. The Esquivel family is large and very close-knit, with three generations involved in the transportation and logistics industry.

During Esquivel's 38-year career in logistics, he worked for two shipping lines in South Florida and established his first company, Universal Freightways, in the Doral area in 1991. The company employed over 75 people who handled freight transportation for many multinational and local companies from the United States to Latin America. In 1997, Universal Freightways was recognized as one of the top 10 freight transportation companies by cargo volume to South America. The company had offices in Doral, New Jersey, Houston, the Dominican Republic, and all major cities in Venezuela. In 2001, due to the deregulation of the maritime industry and a significant number of mergers and acquisitions among his clients, he decided to sell to one of his main competitors. Throughout his career, Esquivel has developed hundreds of job opportunities in multiple organizations.
