It seems that Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo still misses her late husband. On Tuesday evening, the Vice President shared on Facebook a photo of her with Jesse Robredo in their Harvard apartment during the late 90s. The photo shows the couple smiling as Jesse washes the dishes.
"Accidentally found this picture from 17 years ago. Taken, one evening, in our small Harvard apartment with Jesse doing the dishes," Robredo posted.
The couple moved to Boston as Jesse attended Harvard University where he graduated with a public administration master’s degree in 1999. According to Robredo, she and her late husband had different household responsibilities when they lived together.
"When we lived in Boston, we shared in the household chores. I cooked, he washed the dishes. He did the laundry, I ironed the clothes," the Vice President shared.
Leni and Jesse Robredo were married from 1987 until his death in 2012. They met each other while working at the Bicol River Basin Development Program.
The Robredo couple had three daughters. They are Jessica Marie, Janine Patricia, and Jillian Therese. Jessica was an executive assistant at the Office of Civil Defense while Patricia was a sideline reporter for the National University during their UAAP basketball games.
Jesse died on August 18, 2012, due to a plane crash. Jesse was aboard a Piper PA-34 Seneca on his way to Naga City from Cebu City. Due to an engine failure, the airplane pilots decided to make an emergency landing at the Moises R. Espinosa Airport in Masbate City.
However, the plane crashed off the shore near Masbate Island before it could make an emergency landing. Only Police Chief Inspector June Paolo Abrazado – Jesse’s aide – survived the tragic incident. -Kami Media
