Our T.R.U.S.T. Supporters

San Quentin Administration and Staff

For the San Quentin T.R.U.S.T. organization to operate effectively, it takes a village, an Administrative Village to be exact, to assist us in reaching our program's goals. Without their help, we would not be able to accomplish the ambitious projects the T.R.U.S.T. Fellows create and support. We wish to thank, with great appreciation, the following individuals:

Ron Davis, Warden

Lt. Sam Robinson, Public Information Officer

Steve Emrick, Community Partnership Manager

Chaplain Mardi Jackson

Raphaele Casale


Jonathan Castillo

Dina Durano

Ms. Gary
