Founder and CEO, Soteria Community Development Corporation

Jerry Blassingame is founder and CEO of Soteria Community Development Corporation in Greenville, SC, where he trains previously incarcerated individuals during their reentry process. After dropping out of college and a decade of dealing and using drugs, Blassingame served three-and-a-half years of a 20-year prison sentence; since his release in 1999, he has successfully navigated this process himself. And now, he provides tools to enable access and opportunities for individuals and their families who have been impacted by the legal system. Blassingame is a certified reentry specialist with a certification from Wheaton College.
