Biography, Wikipedia, Age, Wife, Net Worth, Career, Family. Jesus Durante, head of the Presidential Security Group under Rodrigo Duterte, is one of the persons of interest in the murder of businesswoman-model Yvonette Chua Plaza.


A Davao native, Durante graduated from the Philippine Military Academy Tanglaw Diwa Class of 1992.

He holds a master’s degree in defense analysis from the Naval Postgraduate School in California, United States, and a master’s in public management, majoring in development security from the Development Academy of the Philippines.

A “full-blooded Scout Ranger,” Durante commanded the 2nd Scout Ranger Battalion of the 1st Scout Ranger Regiment based in Mindanao. He received the PMA Alumni Association’s Cavalier Award for Army Operations in 2003.

He was also a military observer in the 2007 United Nations mission in Wau, South Sudan.

Durante was appointed PSG commander during former president Rodrigo Duterte’s term on February 24, 2020.

Prior to his appointment, he was the commanding officer of the PSG’s Presidential Escorts Battalion, providing immediate security to the president and other VIPs.

Durante claimed responsibility in December 2020 for the unauthorized use of unregistered COVID-19 vaccines. The vaccine was administered by themselves, to personnel who served as close-in security for Duterte.

Then-senator minority leader Franklin Drilon called for Durante to be summoned to explain the unauthorized use of the vaccine. Drilon later said that it was no longer necessary to invite Durante, according to an article.

According to Philippine Army chief Lieutenant General Romeo Brawner Jr., both civil and military investigations against Durante and company will proceed at the same time.

He said that the military will respect judicial proceedings for Durante and other army officers.

Brawner added that investigations will continue to determine if the officers under Durante acted under orders to carry out the murder.
