Maraming Salamat, Sir Jesse.

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.

  1. I don’t know much about him too though but he seems to be a very wise and decent man. He was too young to die and he seemed to be serving people like eternity. Why do all good people die first.

  2. i heard from friends from bicol before that this man was really decent and effective. i wish we’d have more of him. may pag asa pa ang pilipinas. he was 29 when he decided to serve, baka maraming matino at magaling din ang mainspire to do the same.though his death came as a shock to us all, i believe we should honor it by loving the philippines more.
