About the Foundation
On April 6, 2012, the fishing community lost a great angler, icon, and friend, Jose Wejebe, host of the immensely popular saltwater fishing and fly fishing television show, Spanish Fly. Through his show and his adventures, Jose shared his passion for fishing and a lifestyle that touched and inspired anglers around the world.  At the same time, Jose encouraged conservation, leading his viewers by example to take better care of the environment they so enjoy.

Jose Wejebe never forgot his humble beginnings or those others that helped him find success. Throughout his life and career, Jose unselfishly donated his time, money and equipment to support countless charities including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The Marc House, Wounded Warriors, Big Brothers and Big Sisters and many others. The charitable work seen on his television series, “Spanish Fly”, documented only a small portion of his generosity.  Behind the scenes, he quietly assisted with many more charities throughout the world. He did so out of compassion and kindness, and was humbled by those who expressed their appreciation.

In order to continue Jose’s passion for the marine environment, and dedication to support those who face life-impacting challenges, The Jose Wejebe “Spanish Fly” Memorial Foundation was founded in April 2012.  The Foundation will honor Jose’s legacy by continuing his charitable efforts.

 

Foundation Mission
Jose Wejebe “Spanish Fly” Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization under the tax-exempt code, and headquartered in Summerland Key Florida.  The foundation’s mission is to honor Jose’s legacy by matching his inspiration, dedication and passion for our marine environment, and continue his efforts to support those who face life-impacting challenges.

“The Spanish Fly spirit lives in all of us.”
