Nothing was as dear to Jenni Rivera as her children and true to her last wishes, her younger sister Rosie will be looking after her five children in the aftermath of the singer’s death in a plane crash near Monterrey, Mexico.
Rivera – who was laid to rest last week in an emotional “celestial graduation” in Los Angeles – entrusted her children to Rosie in a letter she prepared shortly before the fatal plane crash, reports website Red Alert Live.
“Jenni always had advisers who helped her to work and to make things right,” her brother, Pedro Rivera Jr., told the website. “She prepared a letter about a month and a half ago, and Rosie has that letter.”
The letter from Jenni contained explicit instructions that Rosie take care of both her children and multi-million dollar estate, Jenni Enterprises – a company which has been valued as high as $25 million.
According to Red Alert Live, the letter makes clear that Rosie’s management of Jenni Enterprises as CEO also encompasses ongoing business deals, brand management and legal issues. While three of Jenni’s five children - “Chiquis” Marín Rivera, Jacqueline Marín Rivera and Michael Marín Rivera – are over 18 years of age, sister Rosie will presumably hold guardianship of fifteen-year-old Jenicka Priscilla López Rivera and eleven-year-old Johnny López Rivera.
“To all sisters… A Christmas wish, please hug your sister tightly, tell her how much you love her, forgive all faults,” tweeted Rosie on Christmas Eve.
New details about Rivera’s note to her 31-year-old sister follows an announcement posted on the “Jenni Rivera Official” Facebook page that her online accounts will continued to be maintained in order to keep fans updated about her legacy and projects to come.
“Thanks for making my sister a great lady,” concludes the note posted on Dec. 24.
“Gracias por hacer mi hermana una gran señora.”
