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.
