A Good Jessie that have I meet

Like the the other person,I compare to this person in Late President Magsaysay,He is a man of masses of Naga city

Was born on May 27, 1958 at Naga City.He is the 3rd of 5 siblings of Jose Chan-Robredo Sr. and Marcelina Manalastas.

He studied elementary at Naga Parochial School a private Catholic school where he began to hone his talent and love for chess.The school was known and had established a record for winning Bicol’s annual province-wide chess tournament and Robredo’s brother had been among its champions. However, when it was Robredo’s turn to represent his school, he only garnered second place.

He entered high school at Ateneo de Naga University in 1970 and was in junior year when President Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law in September 1972. The university administration immediately called an assembly and warned its students against getting involved in anti-government activities – which could result in the school being closed down.

In 1980, Robredo worked for the San Miguel Corporation in Mandaluyong City, in the Physical Distribution Technical Services of the General Services Division, and within six months, Robredo had hurdled two of the three levels in the division and was then sent to the finance division for another six months.

When Robredo’s immediate superior transferred to Magnolia Ice Cream, San Miguel Corporation’s ice cream division, he was invited to come along. He was assigned to logistics planning and concurrently functioned as staff assistant to the physical distribution director.

In 1986, Robredo returned to Naga City, where he became Program Director of the Bicol River Basin Development Program, an agency tasked to undertake integrated area development planning in the three provinces of the Bicol region.

He obtained his undergraduate degrees in Industrial Management Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at De La Salle University. He was later accepted as an Edward Mason Fellow and graduated with a Masters of Public Administration degree from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government in 1979. In 1985, Robredo finished his Masters in Business Administration at the University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City, as a scholar and was named the Graduate School and Faculty Organization awardee for scholarly excellence. The Far Eastern University bestowed Robredo with a doctorate in Humanities, honoris causa, during its 80th commencement exercise held at the plenary hall of the Philippine International Convention Center on April 4, 2008, recognizing his efforts to develop Naga City.

As he backs at the Naga City, he ran and elected as the Mayor in their city in 1988 at the age of 29.

He is the youngest mayor in Philippine history. His three terms as mayor ended on June 30, 1998.He was again elected as City Mayor in 2001 and finished his second three terms on June 30, 2010. He served for a total of nineteen (19) years as Naga City Mayor before being appointed on July 9, 2010 as Secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). Robredo was able to transform Naga City from being dull and lethargic to being one of the “Most Improved Cities in Asia,” as cited by Asiaweek Magazine in 1999.

During his time in city hall, Robredo was credited for “dramatically improved stakeholdership and people participation in governance, in the process restoring Naga to its preeminent position as premier city of the Bicol Region. In 1995, in recognition of his skills and competence as a leader and development manager, Robredo was elected President of the League of Cities of the Philippines, the national association of city mayors. Robredo also chairs the Metro Naga Development Council. He served as chairman of the Regional Development Council, the regional planning and coordinative body of Bicol’s six provinces and seven cities, from 1992 to 1998.In recognition of his achievements as Naga City mayor, Robredo was awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Government Service in 2000, the first Filipino mayor so honored.

From June 30 to July 9, 2010, President Benigno Aquino III was Secretary of Interior and Local Government, until Aquino named Robredo as Interior Secretary.At least two politicians from Bicol, Luis Ortega and Luis Villafuerte, Sr. expressed opposition to Robredo’s confirmation by the Commission on Appointments of which Villafuerte himself was a member. In March 2012, the Commission on Appointments bypassed Robredo’s nomination.He is Loving Father also in his family.He finished all the assignment  in his job.

But suddenly,On August 18, 2012 , the Piper PA-34-200 Seneca I aircraft (registered RP-C4431) carrying Secretary Robredo crashed off the shore of Masbate City. He was scheduled to go home and watch his daughter’s swimming competition in Naga City. The Philippine Department of Interior and Local Government said that the pilot sent a distress call to the Masbate airport requesting an emergency landing. The plane never made it to the airport and crashed in the sea. His body was retrieved three days later, August 21, 800 meters from the shore and 180 feet below sea level.

His funeral was held on Archbishop’s Palace in Naga City before it was transferred to Malacañan Palace for an official wake on August 24, 2012. His remains were later brought back to his hometown, Naga on the early hours of August 26. He was cremated on Tuesday, August 28, 2012.

On August 27, 2012, it was announced that Philippine President Aquino would confer the Philippine Legion of Honor with the rank of Chief Commander upon Robredo on August 28, 2012, just before the state funeral.

For me he is my good father,hero,public servant, and Man of Filipino.

Reyes praises Gilas resilience after vengeful win over Iran

TAIPEI – Smart Gilas-Pilipinas survived a couple of missed free throws down the stretch and the late surge by Iran to hack out a thrilling 77-75 win on Friday as it kept its championship bid alive in the 34thWilliam Jones Cup basketball tournament at the TPEC gym.

The Nationals botched four free throws in the final 31 seconds – including three in a row – and then held their collective breath as veteran Mehdi Kamrani missed a potential game-winning three-pointer in Iran’s final play before finally celebrating the hard-earned win.

“Hindi dapat dikit, but we missed two open lay-ups, and four free throws,” said an obviously relieved Gilas coach Chot Reyes.

The victory created a three-way tie at the top at 5-1 among the Filipinos, the defending champion Iranians, and the US team – a 77-66 winner over Jordan earlier – with two playing days left in the tournament being held in honor of the late former Fiba secretary-general.

The Nationals, who lost 91-72 to Lebanon in their previous outing, take on the host team on Saturday at 7 p.m., before capping their campaign with a 5 p.m. game against the Americans on Sunday.

The team with the best record after the tournament will emerge champion.

Marcus Douthit was back to his dominant self with a team-high 22 points and 10 rebounds, while the Rain or Shine pair of Gabe Norwood and Jeff Chan added 17 and 12, respectively, for the Nationals, who dealt the two-time defending champions their first loss of the tournament.

The Nationals enjoyed lead of as much as 63-51 early in the fourth and were protecting an 86-81 edge with 31 seconds to go when they began missing their free throws.

Douthit flubbed a bonus gift shot, Ranidel de Ocampo bungled two, and Chan only had a split, 77-75, with seven seconds to go that opened the door for a possible game-winning shot by Iran.

But Kamrani muffed a desperation three-pointer that sealed the Philippines’ second win in three Jones Cup meetings with Iran since last year’s 73-59 victory in the preliminaries.

“Tapos na sana ng maaga, but it’s really different when you’re playing with the name of the country on your jersey. That’s something we have to learn and get used to,” said Reyes, who finally won over the Iranians after losing to the same team then bannered by Hamed Hahhadi and coached by Rajko Toroman, 75-69, in the first round of the 2007 Fiba-Asia Men’s Championship in Tokushima, Japan.

Held to just three in the first half, Samad Bahrami exploded for 23 points in the last two quarters, including six in a row as Iran made it a 76-75 game.

“Iran is a tough team. They never die, very physical, and warriors. But we showed the heart of our team and how far we can go,” said Douthit.

For the second straight game, PBA commissioner Chito Salud watched and supported the Nationals from the gallery section, joined by chairman Robert Non, vice-chairman Mon Segismundo, Talk `N Text Board member Patrick Gregorio, and PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial.
