Sad news for the industry: Jomar Ang, chief financial officer of RSA Motors and son of business tycoon Ramon Ang, has passed away.
Jomar’s parents said that he died peacefully on Black Saturday, April 11, 2020. He was 26 years old.
Below is the official statement from Ramon and Tessie Ang:
“Our beloved son, Jomar, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 11, 2020. It has been a painful experience, but we have been comforted by the expression of love and sympathy sent to us in so many ways.
“We appreciate all the kind thoughts and prayers. Thank you for being with us during this difficult time.
“While we know that many of you who kept him in your thoughts would have wanted to attend his funeral, we decided it was best to have a private service to celebrate his life on Easter Sunday.
“Jomar was a dutiful, loving, and kind-hearted son, brother, and a loyal and dedicated friend to many. He was a source of great joy to us and we are truly blessed to have had his love and presence in our lives. We know in our hearts that he is in a much better place now.”
Jomar was only just beginning to immerse himself further in different motorcycle communities and establish a name for himself in the industry since San Miguel Corporation took over the BMW distributorship in the Philippines a few years back. He had only recently started working at the helm of his father’s company, having made his first public appearance as CFO during an opening of a new BMW Motorrad showroom back in October 2019.
