"Men have become tools of their tools — Henry David Thoreau"
Professor Chavez in class[1]

Jonathan Chavez is a guest character on Jane the Virgin. He is portrayed by Adam Rodriguez.


Chavez comes off as a stern, but well-intentioned teacher when he is first introduced[2]. While Jane is used to being favored in academic contexts, Chavez imparts a more independent demeanor that is perhaps characteristic for graduate college and teaches Jane to veer off the path of definitive answers.

He eventually, after receiving a text with Jane's various colorful nicknames for him, agrees to become Jane's advisor[3] and later, by trickery, inspires her to harness her skill set when it comes to writing, inferring that Jane sometimes can be stuck in her own point of view[4].


  • He published a book of short stories entitled 'Tennis Shorts'.
  • He is revealed to be the one responsible for throwing Wesley Masters out of the university for improper conduct.
  • He has only seen his mother laugh twice in his life.
