A woman snapped a photo of David Casarez on a street corner in San Jose holding a sign that reads, "Homeless. Hungry for success. Take a resume."

The Laredo native, who is a Texas A&M graduate, moved to the Silicon Valley to launch his own tech startup. But he ran out of money and has been sleeping in his car since June.
