He tried to give greater breadth to the UP, accused by its critics of being a political arm of the FARC. Jaramillo Ossa made efforts to link the movement with the Socialist International, which earned him the nickname "perestroika". Jaramillo intended to separate the suspected relationship between his party and the FARC by approaching the Socialist International. Jaramillo then ran for the presidency of Colombia. He was planning an alliance with Carlos Pizarro Leongómez, demobilized leader of the 19th of April Movement (M-19) and also a candidate for the Presidency.


Since his murderer, Gutiérrez Maya, was 16 at the time of the assassination, he didn't go to jail, but to a minors facility. He was killed about a year later, with his father, as he had been allowed to be out of the correction facility temporarily. Gutiérrez Maya was a friend and coworker of Gerardo Gutiérrez Uribe, killer of Carlos Pizarro. The crime was originally attributed to Pablo Escobar, but the drug lord denied his involvement and even argued he had asked against it. An anonymous call to a radio station in Medellin attributed the murder to the paramilitary organization of Fidel Castaño, who apparently had inherited the criminal structure of Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha, who had been killed months before. No one has been officially condemned by the assassination, but current consensus supports the hypothesis that the paramilitary organization of the Castaño brothers was behind the crime, even acknowledged by Carlos Castaño. On February 11, 2010, Alberto Romero, an ex director of the DAS (Colombian Security Service), was charged as being linked to the murder, together with Carlos Castaño, the chief of the AUC (paramilitary forces).


Jaramillo was murdered while campaigning in Bogotá on March 22, 1990. He was in Bogotá's Puente Aéreo terminal of El Dorado airport with his wife Mariela Barragan and several bodyguards provided to him by DAS.

Once he was in the terminal, he was waiting for his flight to Santa Marta, where he would go on vacation after the exhausting presidential campaign. A young paramilitary hitman, named Andrés Arturo Gutiérrez Maya, waited for him while he and his wife were in front of a pharmacy, then pulled out a Mini Ingram 380 machine gun and fired on the candidate. A guard pushed the wife away to prevent her being shot as well, while other bodyguards chased after the murderer, whom they shot and captured. Jaramillo fell wounded in the arms of his wife and uttered three sentences: "Mi amor, no siento las piernas. Estos hijueputas me dieron, me voy a morir. Abrazame y protegeme. [My love, I don't feel my legs. These motherfuckers got me, I am going to die. Hug me and protect me.]" He was put in a car by his wife and few other bodyguards, where he lost consciousness, and then taken to the hospital of the National Police. He died before he could be put in the surgery room, after a delay in the elevator at the clinic.
