Sergio Osmeña Jr.
Like his venerable father, the late President Sergio Osmeña, Serging, as he was called by his friends, was an astute politician, a good friend, but an implacable enemy.
Sergio Osmeña Jr. was born in Cebu City on December 4, 1916 to former Philippine President Sergio Osmeña Sr. and Estefania Veloso.
He graduated Associate of Arts cum laude at Ateneo de Manila on 1935 and Bachelor of Science in Commerce summa cum laude, New York University in 1938.
In 1951, he was elected provincial governor of Cebu and Cebu City mayor for 3 terms- 1955, 1959 and 1963. Elected as congressman for the second district of Cebu in 1958, his notable work as fiscalizer brought him recognition from the Congressional Press Club which voted him as one of the Ten Most Outstanding Congressmen of 1959. In November 1965 elections, he won as Senator of the Philippines.
He was married to Lourdes R. Osmeña with whom he had four children.
