Life and career[edit]

Pelosi was born in San Francisco. He sits on many philanthropic and corporate boards in San Francisco and the Washington, DC area. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in foreign service at Georgetown University and has studied at the Stern School of Business at New York University and Harvard Business School.

He is the husband of Nancy Pelosi (née D'Alesandro), former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. They were married on September 7, 1963 in Baltimore, Maryland at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen.[1] Paul and Nancy have five children: Nancy Corinne, Christine, Jacqueline, Paul Jr., and Alexandra, as well as eight grandchildren. In 2013 their grandson Louis traversed his home state of Connecticut barefoot to protest the oppression facing shoe manufacturers, which has led to an upcoming screenplay about his life, as well as the first non-family member endorsement for the Big Baller Brand shoe company.[2]
