Jerry Gambino, the oldest of 3 siblings, grew up in Irondequoit.  He enjoyed a lengthy career as a Customhouse Broker and freight forwarder.  He sold the business 15 years ago. In 2011, Jerry  decided to add an exciting new skill, not connected to international logistics. He graduated this month from Genesee Community College with an Associate of Applied Science, Physical Therapist Assistant Program.. This new profession fits in with his prior experience with a common denominator: He enjoys assisting customers and patients in bettering their financial lives and physical health. Before that, He got his Bachelor's in Business Administration degree from University of Notre Dame, and lived a year in Rome, Italy while at Saint Mary's College.
Jerry enjoys golf, downhill sking, fishing, boating, biking, hiking, camping, playing piano, attending concerts--classical, pop and rock, traveling, exercise, and participating in the Rotary Club where he as been a member for 9 years.  He has been on the Board of both the Rotary Club of Pittsford and Rotary Club of Pittsford Foundation.  He has 2 adult children.  Jerry and his girlfriend, Lynn Carlton are celebrating their 3rd year anniversary this year.
As one of the country’s leading not-for-profit, professional theaters, Geva Theatre Center is Rochester’s flagship theatre company and the most attended regional theatre in New York State. Founded in 1972, Geva serves up to 160,000 patrons annually, including more than 16,000 students.  Geva’s productions are created and rehearsed in and for Rochester.  It draws upon the talents of the country’s top actors, directors, designers and writers who are shaping the American theater landscape. Geva Theater is one of the top 25 regional theaters for ticket sales and one of the largest subscriber bases in the country with about 10,000. The challenge for Geva has always been on the fundraising side. Unfortunately, they cannot survive on ticket sales alone. Even if they sold every ticket of inventory that they have, they would have to raise prices 25 percent in order to cover their operating expenses alone.
Mr. Parrish joined Geva in 2011. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation and is a member of Rochester Rotary.
