Wiki

Christopher Gilbert "Chris" Pérez (born August 14, 1969) is a American guitarist and the widower of "The Queen of Tejano music" Selena. He is currently a guitarist for A.B. Quintanilla III y Los Kumbia All Starz since he joined in 2006. Prior to that, Pérez was the lead guitarist for his wife's band Selena y Los Dinos from 1989 to 1995 and A.B. Quintanilla III y Los Kumbia Kings from 2003 to 2006.

Pérez met Selena in 1988. The Quintanilla family hired him to play in Selena's band and the pair fell in love. At first, Abraham Quintanilla Jr., Selena's father and manager, did not approve of their relationship. Eventually, Selena's father fired Pérez from the band. He rejoined Selena y Los Dinos after he and Selena were married on April 2, 1992 in Nueces County, Texas, when she was 20.

On March 31, 1995, Selena was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar, leaving Chris as a widower.
