Sashimi with a side of cold sake, good conversation, and a belly full of laughs—that was the life anthem of Dr. Jose Martinez-Diaz. Jose was no stranger to enjoying the company of family and colleagues while eating "family style" and discussing the world and his two deep interests: behavior analysis and music. On September 21, 2020, Jose gave his final sign-off on a beautiful life filled with a passion for people and improving their quality of life. He spent his final minutes of life beside his wife of 34 years, Danette Onstott, while listening to Bob Dylan's Forever Young.

Q&A with Dr. Jose Martinez-Diaz

What is your vision for the future of ABA Tech? "We want to extend behavior analysis to all areas where it can benefit others. Business people can use behavior analysis, but also medical doctors and nurses. For example, a doctor prescribes exercise and eating right, but just telling the patient to do so usually doesn’t do any good. This is an area where hospitals/medical professionals could use our skills, and many other professions could benefit as well. We want to continue reaching wider audiences around the world, in other countries, and in multiple languages."
