At age 29, he became mayor of Naga and gave up a very promising corporate career to become a public servant. I’m 29 and I feel like I’ve only lived for myself and for my small circle of friends and family members. Because of his life, his testimony, I am encouraged to live a life of purpose–a life for others. I did not know him personally, but I feel unbelievable pain and loss right now. Lord, please bless our country with more leaders like Sec Jesse. To the Robredo family and to the families of the two pilots as well, my deepest condolences. May Christ fill your hearts with peace.
