Jose Sueiro was born in New York City in 1952. After his parents' divorce, his mother moved to Spain and his father, a diplomat, worked on union organizing in Latin America. As a youth Sueiro lived in Spain, Mexico, Panama and Peru. In the early 1970s, he settled in Washington, D.C. and completed a bachelor's degree that included studies at George Washington and American Universities. During this period Suiero started a Hispanic theater program at American University which later developed into Gala Hispanic Theatre. He went on to become a city counselor, soccer coach, director of the Latin American Youth Center, and also worked for the federal Vista program.
In 1978, using the knowledge he acquired about the Latino community, he created the monthly newspaper El Latino with partner Fernando Leonzo. At age 32, Sueiro married a graphic designer at the paper. El Latino struggled until February 1991, when it ceased publication. Sueiro later went on to create the newspaper La Nación.
