Jesse Manalastas Robredo (May 27, 1958 – August 18, 2012) was the Secretary of the Interior and Local Government of the Philippines.[4] Robredo was a member of the Liberal Party.

On July 9, 2010, President Benigno Aquino III named Robredo as Secretary of the Interior and Local Government.[4] Robredo was a former Mayor of Naga City in Camarines Sur. He was the first Filipino Mayor to receive the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Government Service in 2000.

On August 18, 2012 (PHT), the aircraft carrying Robredo crashed off Masbate bay.[5] He was scheduled to attend a political event in Naga City. The Philippine Department of Interior and Local Government said that the pilot sent a distress call to the Masbate airport. The pilot was requesting an emergency landing. The plane never made it to the airport and crashed in the ocean.[6][7] His body was retrieved three days later, August 21, 800 meters from the shore and 180 feet below sea level. [8]
