Jose served as a Social Investigator and Housing Consultant at the St. Nicholas Welfare Center for over five years. During that time he was selected to serve as the Department of Welfare liaison to the Bloomingdale Neighborhood Conservation Project under the auspices of Deputy Mayor Paul O'Keefe during the Wagner administration. In November 1960 he accepted a position as an attendance teacher in the old 14th School district in Harlem. For the next twenty-four years Mr. Ananias served the Bureau of Attendance and the New York City Board of Education with distinction and a zeal that very few professionals could equal.

Jose has interviewed, counseled, acted as a father figure and a role model for thousands of absentee students who were referred to him. Nothing was too difficult for him as he visited families of delinquent youth, uncovering narcotic "shooting galleries", referring hard core truants to the Family Court for needed supervision or assisting pregnant teenagers in planning for their educational future. He has stated that he identified children who were abused or maltreated long before it became front page news. He noted also that he serviced mentally retarded children and other children with special needs long before services to them became involved in bureaucratic redtape.

A native New Yorker, he was born in the old Lying-In-Hospital on East 17th Street, attended P.S. 5M Elementary School, graduated from Stitt Junior High School and attended High School of Commerce for a short time. He recalls with justified pride his graduation from Lincoln Academy in Kings Mountain, N.C. a school founded by the American Missionary Association.

Jose continued his educational pursuits by enrolling in Morehouse College, Atlanta, Georgia and graduating in 1951 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in history and political science with a minor in library science. He was proud to be on the Dean's List and the fact that he pledged and then joined Pi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and has been a working member for the last thirty-six years. He is active with the New York Alumni Chapter and is a Life member.

In 1968 he earned a Master of Science Degree in Education, majoring in attendance and child welfare from City University of New York, Graduate School of Education. In 1975 he earned his New York State certification as a school administrator from New York State Education Department.
