Born in Guayama, Puerto Rico, Crespo and his family moved to New York City when he was a young child. Crespo also spent some time in Lima, Peru, in his young years, thus shaping Crespo's views about the conditions of other countries.

He enrolled in John Jay College in 1996, pursuing a degree in government studies. In 2003, he participated in the State Assembly's internship program, where he was assigned to work with Assemblyman Rubén Díaz, Jr. Crespo earned his B.A. degree in 2004, after which he got a position as assistant to New York State Senator Rubén Díaz, Sr.[1]

Crespo was first elected to the State Assembly in a June 2009 special election to replace Rubén Díaz Jr., who became Bronx Borough President in 2009.
