ABS-CBN mourns the loss of our esteemed Vice Chairman and pillar, Atty. Jake Almeda Lopez. A decorated war veteran, he dedicated many years to building and rebuilding ABS-CBN alongside our founder, Kapitan Geny Lopez, who described him as the “soul” of our organization.
His life was a testament to service, both on the battlefield and as a Kapamilya leader, serving his country and contributing greatly to ABS-CBN’s success. As we bid farewell to one of our pioneers, we extend our heartfelt condolences to his family during this difficult time.
We are forever grateful, Atty. Jake. Rest in peace, Kapamilya!
