Before Season 3Edit
When Katherine became the governor she ruined all of Jerry's fun. She even gave him a job with the National Guard in 2001, but that failed as he ironically once said "Training? No, these guys don't need training. We're the National Guard, we're never gonna fight in a war." Eventually His wife gave Jerry a new job as the warden of A.J. Johnson Prison but unfortunately he just kept making mistakes: letting over 270 prison inmates escaped after he allowed them to make ladders, and created a mandatory Bring Daughter to Work Day which was a total flop, and even a nightmare for all prison guards' daughters.
