Jesus Jorge "George" Marcelo Ejercito[1][2] (July 10, 1939 - August 8, 1988), better known as George Estregan or George Estregan Sr., was a three-time FAMAS award-winning Filipino film actor.

Estregan made his film debut in 1963 with Jose Nazareno, Ang Taxi Driver.[3] He was often cast as a villain and was infamously known as the "Penetration King" of erotic Philippine cinema.[3]

Estregan won critical acclaim for many of his performances. In 1972, he was named FAMAS Best Actor for Sukdulan, and would win two other FAMAS Awards for Best Supporting actor for Kid Kaliwete (1978) and Lumakad Kang Hubad sa Mundong Ibabaw (1980). He was nominated for the FAMAS Award three other times, as Best Actor for Lumapit, Lumayo ang Umaga (1975) and Lalake Ako (1982), and for Best Supporting Actor in Magkayakap sa Magdamag (1986). He also received a nomination from the Gawad Urian as Best Actor for Hostage: Hanapin si Batuigas (1977).

Early life[edit]

Jesus Jorge Marcelo Ejercito was born at 12:35 PM on July 10, 1939 at Manuguit Maternity Hospital (now known as Amisola Maternity Hospital) in Tondo, Manila to Emilio Ejercito (1898–1977) and Mary Ejercito.[1] His older brother is former Philippine President Jose "Joseph" Ejercito (Joseph Estrada).[3]

Personal life[edit]

He was married to Ramona Pelayo-Ejercito of Ibajay, Aklan, with whom he had four children: actor Emilio Ramon Ejercito ("George Estregan, Jr."), Maria Georgina Ejercito, Kurt Joseph Ejercito, and George Gerald Ejercito. He was also the father of actor Gary Jason Ejercito ("Gary Estrada") and Philippine Basketball Association player Rain or Shine Elasto Painters Gherome Eric Ejercito

Death[edit]

Estregan died when he was 49 years old at 4:45 AM on August 8, 1988 at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Santa Mesa, Manila after an eight-month battle with bone cancer despite of rumours that he had succumbed to AIDS.[2]
