Gerald Balboa

Gerardo E. ("Gerald") Balboa is currently a parent of two Duchesne students: Christina (Class of 2022) and Carolina (Class of 2024).  Both girls began their education at Duchesne in the pre-K program and, except for two years when the family moved cities to accommodate his work commitments, have been at the school for most of their educational career.  Olga and Gerald also have two younger children Jacob (4th grade - Regis School) and Laura (3rd grade - Parish School).

Gerald and his wife Olga have been longtime supporters and contributors of both time and resources to Duchesne. Most recently they chaired Extravaganza 2021 which broke records in attendance and fundraising despite difficult circumstances due to the pandemic.  Gerald currently serves on Duchesne's Advancement Committee and is a consistent donor to the school's Annual Fund.  He and Olga have also contributed resources to advance Duchesne community building events such as Mother-Daughter Luncheon, Father-Daughter Dance, and Fine Arts programming. The Balboas are registered parishioners at St. Michael Catholic Church where Gerald serves as a Lector volunteer.

Professionally, Gerald is the Chief Operating Officer at Skylar Capital Management LP, an energy focused hedge fund. He sits on several professional and voluntary/advisory boards for organizations including Career Spring, University of Houston (Honors College), Tau Kappa Epsilon (National Business Council), and serves as volunteer and past-Vice Chair for the Houston Rodeo (Go Tejano Committee). Gerald is a member of the State Bar of Texas, having graduated from the University of Houston with degrees in finance and law.
