Ester Quintana Matheson

Co-Founder

Ester grew up in the Las Cruces, NMex ​​area and has lived in Boulder since January 1970. Her then-husband was at NCAR and Ester was a homemaker. She has a son who graduated from Boulder High and currently lives in Portland, OR with his wife and her 2 grandchildren. With time on her hands, she started volunteering and never stopped. Eventually, she went back to school and earned a business degree from CU. She has been to various meetings throughout the community. Her passion was and continues to be education, which led her to co-found BCLL in 1999. Her now husband, Bob of 30 years, has been just as passionate about the League as she still is.

“I believe in Pay it Forward. I received a lot of support and encouragement from friends and family as I inched toward my business degree. I am delighted to see that some of our fellows and graduates are also beginning to give back by volunteering in various ways to help students who follow in their footsteps. A dream come true.”
