Dr. Pedro C. Jaena
Photo by Peter Jaena BEHOLD THE MAN By MAFELOU C. LEAGOGO-AGRIAM When a person reaches the age of 20, he thinks he is invincible so he dreams of big dreams. When he becomes 40, he feels he is on top of his world. At 60, he takes stock of what he has become and what else there is to do. Come 80, he acquiesces to the limits of his earthly essence and is grateful to God for reaching a full life. Now at his age of 86, Dr. Pedro “Pete” Jaena has the luxury of time to ponder on his whole life script with more fondness than regrets and to offer his wisdom to those who would appreciate it. He has remained one of the well-respected persons in the various communities he has served. Dignified, gentle and principled, Dr. Pete was born from a simple, middle-class family of four children in Jaro. Their distinction lies not only from being closely related to one of the country’s national heroes, Graciano Lopez Jaena, but much so for the family’s strong sense of honor and propriety. Being the only son and the youngest child of Leonardo Jaena of Jaro and Dolores Cavanas of Navalas in Buenavista, Guimaras, on the young man’s shoulders lay the duty of upholding the family’s name and adhering to long-cherished family ideals, tradition and legacy. Graciano Lopez Jaena was Dr. Pete’s uncle. His father, Leonardo, was a second cousin of the prolific writer and journalist. For those who have forgotten Philippine history, Graciano Lopez Jaena founded the infamous newspaper “La Solidaridad” in Barcelona, Spain, where he fled for safety on account of his acerbic commentaries against the Spaniards in the Philippines. Its thought-provoking and striking articles bashed the existing political and religious structures in the Philippines for the injustices and excesses committed particularly by the Spanish friars, and satirized in his story Fray Butod. Lopez Jaena was part of the triumvirate of the Filipino reform movement that included Jose Rizal and Marcelo H. del Pilar, which sought for radical change in their native country. Lopez Jaena died in Spain and was buried in an unmarked grave. His remains were never brought back to the Philippines, much less to Iloilo City. As if fate had destined the Lopez-Jaena line to continue to merge with the Jose Rizal family many decades after the Spanish period, Dr. Pete later married a lady from Navotas, Malabon who happened to be a relative of the country’s national hero. Dr. Nilda Tingson-Jaena’s grandmother, being an Alonzo, was related to Jose Rizal’s mother Teodora Alonzo. Dr. Pete remembers his own father respectfully as a responsible man. He was educated during the Spanish era at the Vicente de Ferrer Seminary. He finished a bookkeeper course and spoke fluent Spanish and Hiligaynon. He was employed in a shipping firm, Fusella Labora & Co. “I attribute my relative success (in life) to hardships when I was young, and to the support and dedication of my parents and siblings,” he says. His three older sisters married off quite well: Leonor to Angelico Setias, an executive of the Shell Company in Iloilo; Milagros to Architect Jose Salazar; and Flora to the physician Ceferino Lopez. Dr. Pete is a product of public schools early in his youth. He took his Pre-Med course in college at the Central Philippine College (now Central Philippine University), which was cut short in his second year when World War II broke out in December 8, 1941 in the country. Like all ROTC cadets, young Pete was inducted into the United States Armed Forces in the Far East (USAFFE) on December 12 in Dingle, Iloilo and was posted in Valderrama, Antique. When it was disbanded after the fall of Corregidor, he entered the guerilla movement – organized by Col. Macario Peralta -- as a Staff Sergeant commissioned as Third Lieutenant and still assigned in Antique. Suffice to say Pete was a dedicated foot soldier who rose to become a Second Lieutenant. “During the last days of the war, and while American forces landing was eminent in Tigbauan, the Japanese retreated from Iloilo City to Tiring, Cabatuan, and the Filipino forces concentrated in that area for mopping-up operations. My company was ordered to attack and capture the Japs outpost at the foot of the Cabatuan Bridge across the river.” Snipers were firing ferociously, he remembers, and grenades were being hurled at them. One eventually took the life of their commandant, Captain Asterio Bautista and shrapnel hit the eye of platoon leader Lt. Masangkay rendering him blind. The company hid under the tall cogon grasses and waited until dark when the soldiers retaliated. For his valor in battle as company co-commandant, Pete was promoted to First Lieutenant. “One experience that I will never forget as well is when I was assigned as a liaison officer in Antique to bring letters, reports, and communications to Col. Peralta who was in Passi… In that mission, I was able to go around Panay walNYC - West Village: Mulry Square - Tiles for America
Tiles for America began on September 12, 2001. In the aftermath of the tragedy, crowds gathered in large numbers in front of Saint Vincent's Hospital, located at the corner of 7th Avenue and 11th Street. This was the hospital that was prepared to receive the thousands of survivors that many people were hopeful they would be. Lorrie Veasey, owner of OUR NAME IS MUD, also located on 11th Street, began to create what she hoped would be an inspiration to recovering victims. From raw clay she fashioned approximately 5000 small angels and American flags, which she and friends attached to a fence that faced the hospital on September 14. The angels and flags were attached with ribbon, and before two weeks had passed, most of them had been removed from the fence. Lorrie is a member of an organization called the Contemporary Ceramic Studio Association. They have a web site with a bulletin board where "Paint Your Own Pottery" studios correspond with one another. Studios across the USA were understandably horrified at the events of 9/11 and eager to find a way to help. The idea of a tile memorial took hold, and soon studios all across the USA held individual fundraisers in which tiles were created for the NY Memorial. Soon, case upon case of tiles began to arrive. Studio owners often drove through the night to bring their tiles to the site (such as Patti Bowman from Glazenfyre in Virginia Beach VA-who drove up with 1500 tiles), and many studio owners worked in freezing weather to install them, (Most notably Deb from Garden City Doin the Dishes and Meredith from Art and Soul). What was once a small section of fence has grown to encompass more than a full city block. Approximately 6000 tiles now hang on the Memorial. Most CCSA studios have participated in some way, and tiles have also been received from Europe and Japan. Word has also spread through the clay community, and the Memorial has received several hand made unusual tiles from prominent ceramic artists.
