Jesus Augusto “Chito” P. Francisco (1943-2019)

We are deeply saddened by the passing of our most esteemed colleague and friend, Chito. He left behind a legacy of sharing, such that, his widow, Mariel, and family, decided to make UPERDFI the beneficiary of gifts in lieu of flowers.

After his BSME degree, he took up BSEE, graduating in 1966. He joined Meralco, and rose through the ranks, becoming its President until he retired. Chito served UPERDFI as Chairman from the mid-90s until 2007. He was recognized as UPCOE’s Most Distinguished Alumnus by the UP Alumni Engineers in 2008, and as one of Top 100 Engineering Alumni in the Centennial Year of UPCOE in 2010. 

With his gentle demeanor, he got things done! We will surely miss him.
