Director of Special Projects

Bill Jepsen worked for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for thirty-four years until his retirement in 2019. During his tenure at DHS, he served as the Assistant Field Office Director in New Mexico, managing three offices for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and oversight of two contract detention facilities.

Bill served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for the ICE Deputy Director in Washington, D.C., and as the Assistant Attaché for ICE in Hanoi, Vietnam. He spent six years as a Senior Special Agent assigned to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force investigating international terrorism cases.

During his time with the federal government, Bill was a member of both SRT and BORTAC.

He also traveled to Central America to teach local police officers tactics including proper arrest techniques, surveillance, and firearms.

Bill loves sailing in the Caribbean, hiking, golf, and has a passion for teaching adaptive snowboarding and skiing to athletes with disabilities.


Under the current corrections paradigm, there are only two options when it comes to incarceration. Public facilities are bureaucratic and lack accountability for resident success, and private for-profit facilities maximize profit over results to pay shareholders. SPC will provide the nation’s first private, non-profit correctional model. Free from government bureaucracy and perverse profit motives, we can innovate best-practices and reinvest every penny into our residents and staff. Fill out the form below to learn more.
