Career/ Why Did Jorge Garcia Leave Hawaii Five-0?

Jorge Garcia stepped into acting after he graduated from the University of California, with a major in communications.

He started his career in the mid-'90s with appearances in movies and TV shows like Raven's Ridge (1997), Tomorrow By Midnight (2001), Spin City (2001), Rock Me Baby (2003), and Curb Your Enthusiasm (2004), to name a few.

After gaining massive fame from Lost, Jorge appeared in many projects. Further, in 2013, he entered the main cast of Hawaii Five-O as a consultant named Jerry Ortegain on season 4. But, in 2019, as his character got shot in the premiere episode of season 10, it left the fans devastated.

However, there is good news. Jorge's character is not dead; Jerry will take some time to recover and decide to leave the Hawaii Five-0 task force to follow his dream of writing a book. But, the fans will be seeing him as a guest star in future episodes.

Further, with such an impressive career, as of now, Jorge enjoys an estimated net worth of $5 million.

Weight Loss Details

Jorge Garcia has always leaned to the chubby side since he was a kid. But, unlike many other people, he never has issues with his appearance.

Over time, he got pressured by his closed ones - who were concerned about his weight - to try to lose weight. In 2016, he made an effort and even succeeded to a certain extent. But, as he reverted, he gained even more.
