Jose Maria Mathilda, better known as Djo Mathilda, a father of 3 children (1 son and 2 daughters), is a sports enthusiast from Santa Maria, a beloved neighborhood with over 6000 youngsters. “Today, it consists of people from all around Curaçao who have come to live in the neighborhood, which has grown so much, as he explains. A citizen with respect for everyone, both young and old. In recognition of his significant work, Her Majesty the Queen decorated him with the Gold Medal in the Order of Orange in 1972. For his dedication to football and youth in Curaçao in general, and as a member of the board of the “Curaçaose Voetbalbond” (CVB) in particular, he was named an Honorary Member of CVB in 1967. These are two acknowledgments of merit from a list of more than 12, along with several plaques of honor awarded in this great land. He rightfully earned his place in the Hall of Fame of the Curacao Sport Federation (CSF).

 With pride, he recounts his birth, upbringing, and lifelong residence in Santa Maria. “Working for the Youth Development of Santa Maria, I worked for the youth of the entire Curaçao. By dedicating time to the youth, I helped shape those who later took on responsibilities. And I continue to do so in other ways.”

 In 1937, a young boy of just 13 years, along with his friends, founded a football club in Santa Maria, a much smaller Santa Maria than today. The boy from that time, Jo Mathilda, remembers the exact date: January 11, 1937. The club was named DTS, which stands for ‘Door Trainen Sterk.’ They immediately joined CVB and started playing in competitions.

 Young Jo Mathilda became a board member and even the President of DTS when he was just 15 years old. It was fascinating to see a young president confidently leading board meetings of much older members. And with respect.

 “But there was respect.” It was a time of war, and the young men had to enlist. “DST players were not allowed by their superiors to participate in championship matches. The superiors were from another team (SUBT). The result: DST withdrew from the CVB (league) competition and decided to play ball just for fun.

 On June 20, 1948, the DST youths, along with players from VELOX (for Speed) from Mahuma, embarked on a bike trip to Westpunt one Saturday afternoon. There, they slept on the beach to wake up early for the journey to Wacawa with bicycles, meeting a guide who climbed Seru Jose Maria Mathilda, better known as Djo Mathilda, a father of 3 children (1 son and 2 daughters), is a sports enthusiast from Santa Maria, a beloved neighborhood with over 6000 youngsters. “Today, it consists of people from all around Curaçao who have come to live in the neighborhood, which has grown so much, as he explains.
