Summary
"Jesse De La Cruz was raised in the barrios of California and at the age of twelve began a journey that led him to become a convict, heroin drug addict, and gang member who served approximately thirty years of his life at California prisons like Folsom and San Quentin. After his final release from prison, Mr. De La Cruz enrolled in college, graduating with a Baccalaureate degree in sociology in 2001 and a Masters of Social Work degree from California State University, Stanislaus, in 2003. He is currently working on his Ed.D. He is the founder of the Jonah Foundation, a sober living house which provides housing to ex-offenders transitioning from prison to the outside. He lives with his daughter in California."--Cover
