Gerry Cypert is the proud, loving and devoted father of three children: Emily, 25, Savanah, 21, and Brandon, who recently turned 18. Gerry has struggled tirelessly over the 18½ years of his imprisonment to play a supportive role and remain relevant in the lives of his children. He believes firmly that imprisonment is no excuse to abandon a parent’s responsibilities to his or her children, no matter the difficulties and obstacles to overcome.

It is soul-crushing to me that I have created a situation in which this is the only environment that my children can come to see me

At the TEDx event at Ironwood State Prison, Gerry shared the "Sins of the father" with us:
