Joseph Victor “JV” G. Ejercito was born on December 26, 1969 to former President now Manila Mayor Joseph Ejercito Estrada, and businesswoman, philanthropist and current San Juan City Mayor Guia Gomez. He was given the name “Victor” because he was born shortly after the elder Estrada won his first term as Mayor of the town of San Juan.
He attended Xavier School and completed his degree in Political Science at the De La Salle University.
Senator JV’s life away from the legislative halls of the Senate revolves around his family – his wife, Ma. Hyacinth Lotuaco, and his two sons Jose Emilio and Julio Jose.
