Engr. Redentor S. Jardin, MSCE — the incumbent Municipal Mayor of Jasaan, Misamis Oriental initiated the infrastructure progress development of Jasaan. Transformed the once sleepy town into a tourist destination.
His first major project was the construction of the new municipal public stage “The Shell” that was finished in time for the September 1, 2004 Adlaw Sa Jasaan celebration.
Within his first term, he proceeded to construct a new Municipal Hall building that housed 95% of all the departments including offices of the national agencies; a new Hall of Justice building; a new Police Station building;
The history of the Municipality of Jasaan, just like other municipalities of Misamis Oriental, can be traced back from the pre-Spanish era. Jasaan, as early as l840, was already an existing municipality. It was reduced to a barangay in the year 1903 and was placed under the jurisdiction of Balingasag with the occupation of the Americans who governed the country after the Spaniards.
Jasaan was named by a Spanish missionary who chanced upon a native sharpening his bolo in Sapong Spring in what is now called Kota, Aplaya. The missionary asked for the name of the place. However, the native replied "Ag-hasaa" meaning, "I am sharpening my bolo". The missionary thought that he was answered correctly, called the place "Ag-hasaa", but finding it difficult for him to pronounce the word, he called it "Hasaan" instead. Then it was changed to "Jasaan".
Hasaanons were challenged to work for the restoration of their municipal status. Thus, the Municipality, by virtue of Executive Order No. l65, issued by President Elpidio Quirino on 18 August 1948, to take effect on 1 September 1948, regained its municipal status.
On November l0, l948, a formal inauguration took place and the first set of appointed municipal officials assumed office. On this said date, a continuous celebration of Adlaw sa Jasaan was annually celebrated. However, on August 25, 2003, the then Sangguniang Bayan, by virtue of Municipal Ordinance No. 25-2003, and EO 014-2003 dated 24 February 2003, officially returned to its rightful date the yearly Adlaw sa Jasaan celebration, to September 1.
From a sleepy and sparsely populated community, Jasaan grew and developed into one of the agro-industrial and tourism rich municipalities of Misamis Oriental.
