Memo to         :           The University Community

Subject            :           Chief Justice Renato C Corona (1948-2016)

The Ateneo de Manila University mourns the passing away of a loyal alumnus
who distinguished himself in the field of law through hard work and public

Chief Justice Renato C. Corona was a proud Atenean, having excellently
pursued his academic education at the University from grade school (class
1962) to law school (class 1974), always capped by distinct honors. He
proceeded to successively pursue a Master of Business Administration at the
Ateneo Professional Schools and a Master of Laws from the Harvard Law
School, demonstrating his constant yearning to learn. He spent 17 years
teaching business-related courses at the Ateneo Law School. He was also the
President of the Ateneo Alumni Association from 1991-92.

While his early law practice was devoted to Commercial Law and Taxation, he
spent the rest of his legal career with two Presidents of the Republic,
Fidel V. Ramos and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Being among the closest legal
advisers to them, he attended to a variety of legal tasks ranging from
anti-crime campaigns to economic development. Upon Arroyo’s assumption of
the presidency on January 20, 2001, he was then and thereafter variously
appointed as Presidential Chief of Staff, Presidential Spokesman, and
Acting Executive Secretary. Shortly thereafter, he was appointed Justice of
the Highest Tribunal as its 150th member. On May 17, 2010, then President
Arroyo appointed him as the 23rd Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

Chief Justice Corona is survived by his loving family: his wife, Cristina
Roco, three children - Charina, Carla and Francis - and six
grandchildren, namely,
Franco, Santino, Anika, Katrina, Natalia, and Caia.

Let us keep Chief Justice Corona and his family in our prayers.
