About Jose Wejebe
Born in Havana, Cuba in 1958, Jose Wejebe grew up in a politically tumultuous time. Fidel Castro leading the Cuban revolution had just seized power and was imposing communist ways on the country. The new government then began taking land, money and property from some of the families with claims that the property now belongs to the "revolution". His father was imprisoned for speaking out against the Castro regime. Jose, his mother and sister fled to the Swedish embassy for safety and stayed there until papers were set for asylumin the US. After turning over most everything they owned to the Cuban government including all their land in Cuba, Jose's father and grandfather were released from prison. Completely broke and destitute, the family escaped.
His true passion was being on the water everyday, so Jose decided to fulfill his dream and became a full-time guide. He navigated and fished his backyard waters of Biscayne Bay with ventures to Florida Bay, Everglades City and the Florida Keys. "The best thing about fishing for me was exploring and finding new spots," explains Jose. "At the time, there were still relatively unfished areas and if you worked hard enough, you could find a few secret spots of your own."
On April 6, 2012 friends, family, and fans were shocked to hear the tragic news. Shortly after take off Jose's plane crashed in Everglades City. Jose was the only person in the plane, and did not survive. The loss of a man like Jose was tragic. Fans felt moved and connected to Jose. Friends' lossed a brother.
