J-Que’s gold medal performance led to the birth of his alter ego “the Pimperelli” and he matriculated his way from the hottest DJ on the college circuit to join the team at 97.9 the Box. J-Que is Music Director, Pimpin’ daily on air and rocks the turntables at parties and celebrity events across the nation. He is a “Go DJ” and member of The Core DJ coalition.
