Vice President Leni Robredo felt sentimental as she marked the celebration of Naga City’s Charter Anniversary.

Robredo shared a throwback photo of the last anniversary celebration she and her late husband Jesse Robredo attended.

“Naga’s Charter Anniversary today. Every June 18, I am reminded of the last one I attended with Jesse. This was exactly two months before the plane crash happened,” said Robredo.

The Vice President said that one of the highlights of every charter anniversary celebration is recognizing Nagueños who have brought honor to the city .

“In 2012, Jillian was one of the awardees after having won in an international Math competition. She was 12 years old at that time,” said Robredo.

“She was awarded by then Mayor John Bongat and then Vice Mayor, now Congressman Gabriel Hidalgo Bordado Jr. Mr Jimmy Fabregas, a proud Nagueño, who himself has brought honor to the city, was the Guest of Honor,” she added.

Jesse died in a plane crash in 2012.
