The Jose Wejebe Memorial Foundation

Jose Wejebe never forgot his humble beginnings or that others had 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. The Jose Wejebe “Spanish Fly” Memorial Foundation will memorialize and honor Jose’s compassion by continuing his charitable efforts with nonprofit organizations. Through your donations this foundation will continue his efforts and ensure that Jose’s generosity and charitable legacy live on.
