Sebastián Marroquín is a Colombian architect, entrepreneur and author who is better known as the son of late infamous Colombian drug lord, Pablo Escobar, who reportedly was in control of 80% of the global cocaine market at the height of his career. Many initially thought that the then 16-year-old boy would take over his father's drug business, as he had threatened to avenge his father's death in 1993. However, he carefully distanced himself from the Medellín Cartel and the illegal drug trade in Colombia, and considers the threat a mistake. Now an architect living in Argentina, he often travels the world to talk about his father, primarily the mistakes he made. He became a spokesperson of reconciliation in 2009, when he appeared in the Argentine documentary 'Sins of My Father', which contained footage of him meeting with and apologizing to the families and relatives of the victims his father had ordered to be assassinated. In 2014. he published the book 'Pablo Escobar: My Father’ under his birth name, Juan Pablo Escobar. He has stated that he intends to use the profits from his organic clothing line, 'Escobar Henao', to help his father's victims and Colombian charities.
