Emilio Ramon Pelayo Ejercito III, commonly known as E.R. Ejercito and also popularly known by his official on-screen names Jorge Estregan, George Estregan Jr. and Jeorge "E.R." Ejercito Estregan, is a Filipino actor and former governor of Laguna. Prior to his election as governor, he served as mayor of Pagsanjan, Laguna. He is the son of actor George Estregan and the nephew of former President and former Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada. On May 27, 2014, the Commission on Elections unseated Ejercito after alleged overspending during the campaign for the 2013 midterm elections. 3 days later his uncle, Mayor Estrada, convinced him to step down. On April 5, 2019, he was convicted and sentenced to 6 to 8 years in prison for graft over an anomalous insurance deal when he was mayor of Pagsanjan in 2008. The Sandiganbayan anti-graft court on August 7, 2019, upheld its earlier ruling that also barred Ejercito from holding public office.
