Family, friends and colleagues of Jose Wejebe filled the room at a “Celebration of Life” memorial service held Sunday at IGFA headquarters in Dania Beach, Florida. The popular ‘Spanish Fly’ host was well-remembered for his expertise, colorful personality and charitable nature.
Wejebe died in a single-engine plane crash in southwest Florida on April 6. He was 54.
Steve Waters of the_ Sun Sentinel_ reported from Sunday’s event and talked with those who were close to Wejebe.
Last week, we also heard from Wejebe’s colleagues on the Hell’s Bay pro team — including Chico Fernandez, Flip Pallot and Hell’s Bay president Chris Peterson — who had many kind words regarding his substantial influence on the fishing world.
