Ejercito served as mayor of San Juan City for three consecutive terms from 2001 to 2010.
During the 2010 elections, Ejercito ran for the position of congressman for the lone district of San Juan. Over the course of his term, Ejercito authored and/or sponsored 161 bills and/or House measures, five of which were approved by the House and passed to the Senate for consideration:

Graft Charges, Arrest and Acquittal
On April 6, 2016, Sandiganbayan Fifth Division issued an arrest warrant against Ejercito and four other government officials, in connection with allegations on misuse of funds during his term as San Juan City mayor. The said case involved the purchase of PhP 2.1 million worth of firearms using calamity funds. It is alleged that Ejercito approved the purchase in April 2008 despite the city not being under a state of calamity.
On February 20, 2017, the Sandiganbayan affirmed the acquittal from graft of Senator Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito over the alleged anomalous use of calamity funds for the purchase of high-powered firearms when he was San Juan City mayor.
He is married to Hyacinth "Cindy" Lotuaco with whom he has a son, Julio Jose. He also has an older son, Jose Emilio. Joseph Victor is also a Commissioned Reserve Officer of the Philippine Marine Corps with the rank of Major. He is an adopted member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of '88, Maringal.
