VP Leni marks Jesse’s ninth death anniversary


Vice President Leni Robredo has marked the 9th death anniversary of her husband former Interior Secretary and Naga City Mayor Jesse Robredo.

The Vice President shared a throwback photo of her during the first death anniversary of Jesse.

“8 years ago, one year after Jesse’s death, I was in Masbate to witness the installation of an underwater marker at the exact site where the plane carrying Jesse was found,” said Leni.

“It was a very difficult time to be in the middle of the sea, visiting the exact same spot where his plane crashed,” she added.

Jesse, then serving as DILG chief, died in a plane crash. He served as Naga City Mayor for three terms.

Few years after Jesse’s death, Leni entered politics and ran as Camarines Sur representative.
