On Monday, 24th August 2009, Ms Vilma Pahubasan, former National President of the Philippines YCW wrote:
"On behalf of the Philippine Former YCW's I would like to inform you that one of our colleagues DENNIS JOROLAN has passed away last August 21, 2009. Dennis has worked in Cardijn Foundation-Philippines together with Juanito, Boy, Ompie and others. And he was always there to help before he died".
Dennis also worked on the YCW History Project from 1998-2000. He was also a founding member of the Cardijn Center for Development in Manila.
CCI offers its deep condolences to the family of Dennis and to all former YCWs in the Philippines who have lost a dedicated worker leader. May his soul rest in peace.
