I am not sure any one person is exactly like Jesus, but anyone can be like Jesus. We should all try to help one another, and look out for other people before ourselves. As for spreading the Gospel, I suppose that's not necessary in modern times unless someone asks.

While he was not like Christ, don't forget Ghandi. He lived like Christ taught others. Ghandi sacrificed his personal desires to be a leader to his people and all people. He modeled the behavior he asked of others. And he taught moral lessons.

If you believe that Jesus was the Son of God, then no one can ever be truly like Jesus.  Outside of that, the main characteristic of Jesus was that he sacrificed himself for others.  So then you have to ask yourself who does that today.

If you give me a little leeway to pick someone who died only recently, I would say that Mother Teresa was more like Jesus than anyone else.  This is because she gave most of her life to helping the poor.  I suppose that you could say that someone like Nelson Mandela or Aung San Suu Kyi might be like Jesus because they have been (or are being) persecuted for trying to help improve the lot of their people.
