    ‘Museo ni Jesse Robredo’ opens on late DILG sec’s 5th death anniversary

    Office of the Vice President 18 August 2017

    The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), along with Vice President Leni Robredo and her family, led the inauguration and blessing of a museum dedicated to the life and legacy of the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo.

    “Museo ni Jesse Robredo,” located at the Naga Civic Center, takes visitors into the life of the long-time Naga City mayor and Interior secretary—from his family roots to his years as a public servant, down to the plane crash that took his life in 2012.

    It features four galleries filled with Sec. Jesse’s personal items and story, as shown in displays and interactive features.

    In her remarks, VP Leni said her husband’s life may have served as an inspiration to many because he showed that it is possible to be in public office and maintain a simple lifestyle, in turn giving exemplary service to the people.

    “Tingin ko iyong kuwento ng asawa ko, isang kuwento na nagbibigay ng pag-asa—pag-asa na puwede naman palang magkaroon ng mahuhusay na public servants pero maayos pa din ang pribadong buhay. Puwede naman pala na magkaroon ng mahuhusay na public servants, na kahit napakatagal na sa posisyon, hindi pinayaman ang sarili… I think it’s one of the things that set him apart,” she said, noting that Sec. Jesse was equally exceptional as a husband and father.

    But even while the museum was established as a tribute to Sec. Jesse, the Vice President said it is a showcase not only of her husband’s legacy, but the trademark “matino, mahusay, at matapat” mindset that the city of Naga carried out even after Sec. Jesse’s death.

    “Ito pong museong ito, ito iyong testament din ng lahat ng taga-Naga, na noong nabubuhay pa iyong asawa ko, lagi din niyang inuulit-ulit na hindi niya magagawa lahat ng gusto niyang gawin kung hindi dahil sa husay at galing din ng mga taong nakapaligid sa kaniya,” she said.

    “Ito pong museum, ito ang magsasakatuparan ng pagnanais na kung ano man iyong mga natutunan namin sa pamamalakad ng aming lungsod ay handang-handa kaming ibahagi iyon sa iba pa,” she added. “Kaya nagpapasalamat kami sa NHCP at sa national government sa pagbigay ng isang physical manifestation ng lahat ng gusto naming iambag para sa ating bansa.”

    Following the program and blessing, VP Leni and her children, Tricia and Jillian, were able to take a tour of the museum.

    The event was part of the commemoration of the fifth death anniversary of the late Interior secretary.

    Prior to the inauguration, VP Leni, her family, friends, and supporters gathered for a Mass at Sec. Jesse’s final resting place in Eternal Gardens-Naga.

    “Sa ngalan po ng aming pamilya, nagpapasalamat po kami sa inyong lahat nang buong puso,” she said.
