Rojas was born in Delicias, Chihuahua, Mexico. He was raised in Chihuahua City. Rojas convinced his parents, though none of them were Latter-day Saints, to send him to the LDS Church-owned Academia Juárez in Colonia Juárez so he could learn English. Rojas lived with Willard and Bertha Shupe while in Colonia Juárez, and they convinced him to attend English-language LDS Church meetings in order to assist him in learning English.
Rojas continued to work for the Church Educational System and later in area administrative offices. In 1988, Rojas and his wife set up a business translating technical manuals from English for American companies with factories in Mexico.
Rojas and his wife Marcella have five children.
Rojas was called as an Area Seventy of the church in 2004. He has since served in the presidency of the Mexico North Area of the church. From 2008 to 2011, Rojas was the president of the Guayaquil Ecuador Temple.
