Senator Jinggoy Estrada filed a resolution in the Senate expressing deep sympathy and heartfelt condolences over the passing of veteran actress Jaclyn Jose. The senator, who was also a former actor, described Jose’s death as a tragic loss to the entertainment industry.

In his statement, Senator Estrada highlighted Jose’s exceptional talent and skill, which earned her awards and recognition in Philippine cinema. He specifically mentioned her historic win as the first and only Filipino and Southeast Asian actress to receive the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in “Ma’ Rosa” in 2016.
