Longevity claimant

Jose Uriel de los Angeles Delgado Corrales (10 March 1900? – 27 May 2021) was a Costa Rican longevity claimant who claimed to be the world's oldest living man and person at time of his death.


Jose claimed to have been born on 10 March 1900 in San Antonio de Escazu, Costa Rica to Jesus Delgado and Gabriela Corrales. He claimed to have a baptism record which supports 1900 as a birth year. According to his alleged baptism record, he was baptized in San Miguel de Escazu, Escazu, San Jose, Costa Rica by Yanuario Quesada on 12 March 1900.

Whether the person alive today is the same as the person in the birth record is an issue. There is a nearly 99-year gap in the records for this claimant, and he has no "family history" and lived with people that don't know about his early life. He also appeared to be in remarkably good shape for the age claimed.

On 19 January 2021 at the claimed age of 120, he received his COVID-19 vaccine.

He died in Santa Ana, San Jose, Costa Rica at the claimed age of 121 years and 78 days.
