I attended the memorial services at IGFA this past weekend. There were over two room packed full of people who did the same. Many famous and not so famous people in the industry was there. From family, friends, sponsors, people who have met him and people who he has not met but loved him anyways.
There were many tear jerking moments as well as times everyone laughed all the stories. Jose was a man of many talents. He lived life to the fullest and hand infectious personality. The fishing world would miss him dearly.
From the website:
“The fishing community has lost a great angler, icon, and friend. We are deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Jose Wejebe, host of the immensely popular saltwater fishing and fly fishing television show Spanish Fly on the Outdoor Channel. Through his show and his adventures he shared a passion for fishing that touched and inspired anglers around the world.”
