Jaime González Durán (a.k.a. El Hummer) is a former Mexican drug trafficker who was one of the 31 original founding members and third-in-command of the criminal organization known as Los Zetas. A former Mexican Army elite soldier of the Grupo Aeromóvil de Fuerzas Especiales (GAFE), he was trained in counter-insurgency and locating and apprehending drug cartel members. He deserted in the late 1990s and was hired along with 30 other ex-soldiers by the Gulf Cartel leader, Osiel Cárdenas Guillen as his private enforcement army.

After Osiel's arrest, González controlled a large-scale illegal drug distribution and transfer to the United States, mostly of cocaine and marijuana. He also controlled much of the illegal drug trade in the Mexican states of Nuevo León, Michoacán, Hidalgo, Veracruz, Tabasco, Quintana Roo and Mexico City. The Attorney General has cataloged him as one of the most dangerous and violent of organized crime members, and one of the most wanted by Mexican and U.S. justice.
González Durán is believed to have been responsible for the murder of narcocorridos singer Valentín Elizalde.

González was arrested on November 7, 2008 by Mexican Federal Police agents in Reynosa, Tamaulipas. A vast arsenal of firearms and ammunition were confiscated with his arrest. The Mexican Attorney General filed charges against him for his probable responsibility of organized crime and crimes against health. He was admitted in the maximum security federal prison Penal del Altiplano, in Almoloya de Juarez, Mexico State, where he is serving a sentence of 35 years.
Kingpin Act sanction
On 24 March 2010, the United States Department of the Treasury sanctioned González Durán under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (sometimes referred to simply as the "Kingpin Act"), for his involvement in drug trafficking along with fifty-three other international criminals and ten foreign entities. The act prohibited U.S. citizens and companies from doing any kind of business activity with him, and virtually froze all his assets in the U.S.
