Personal life[edit]

Nickname[edit]

During his early years at Monterrey, Corona was given the nickname "Tecatito" in reference to the beer company, as his surname is also the name of a beer company, which is considered a competitor to the Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma Brewery company, which owns Tecate, and was a club sponsor, with the logo of the subsidiary Carta Blanca being present on the kits. During the club's participation at the 2012 FIFA Club World Cup, with Carta Blanca as the sole kit sponsor, the name 'Corona' was not displayed, instead 'Jesús C.' was shown .[16]
