Character Bio

Cesar Jimenez is Fran’s hardworking employee at Frantastic Flowers. Of course, part of the reason he is so hardworking is to delay going home – Cesar’s house is often overrun with a domineering wife, whiny kids, and a meddling mother-in-law. Cesar is a fixture in Fran and Peter’s life and always seems to know what is going on with them – maybe because the walls are thin, but probably because his ears are always pressed against them.
