My name is Jerry.  I am hoping to meet someone special and relatable whether it be as a friend or a friendship that may ultimately lead to love.  I’d be grateful for either because they both bring a sense of comfort to incarcerated individuals.


I am a man who values family, friendship and love and have learned to embrace them whole heartedly.


I have worked diligently the entire duration of my incarceration by furthering my education such as the recent completion of the culinary arts class.  I too have a certificate in construction occupation and is currently on the wait list for automotive tech.  I am a truck driver by trade on the outside and hold a CDL.


Most importantly, I’ve remained laser focused on corrective thinking and behavior modifications to assure myself and others that when I re-enter society, I will do so as a positive and productive individual.  I cannot and will not allow my past mistakes to hinder, in any form, any progress I seek to achieve in the near future.  I’m focused. 


Thank you for taking the time to read my profile here on Illinois Prison Pen Pal.  I have high hopes of hearing from you soon.
