Sebastian Marroquin (birth name Juan Pablo Escobar Henao) popular for being the son of Pablo Escobar, was born on 24th February 1977 in Medellin, Colombia.
Sebastian Marroquin changed his name as he was afraid that he would get identified by his father’s enemy who would kill him and his family.

In Argentina, Sebastian works as an architect and also writes books. He authored the book called “Pablo Escobar: My Father” under his birth name Juan Pablo Escobar. Sebastian Marroquin does not want to be associated with his father’s name and any of his businesses.
However, his family does sell Pablo Escobar’s belongings from time to time and in addition; they also tried to register Pablo Escobar’s name three times as a brand but failed to do so.
Sebastian stated in an interview, that he will contribute the part of the money earned from his business ventures to the families in Colombia which suffered due to his father.
