Jep Robertson, the youngest son of Duck Commander Phil Robertson, and his wife, Jessica, open up about their personal trials, their early years together, and the challenges that might have destroyed them both had the grace of God not intervened. Jep describes being molested as a child and his reluctance to tell anyone until only a few years ago, his downward spiral into drug and alcohol abuse, and the eventual intervention of his family. Jessica shares about the difficult failure of her first marriage while still a teenager and the hurt that came along with it, much of it from the church. Her insecurities spun out of control as she wondered whether she would ever be good enough or pretty enough. This book is their love story but, more importantly, their love story for God.
“We are desperate to let people know that no matter what you’ve done; no matter what you’ve lived through, you can come out of it. You can be washed clean. You are redeemed."
Jep Robertson is the youngest son of Phil and Kay Robertson. Jep grew up in the duck blind and utilizes these years of experience in his role as cameraman and editor for the family business. Jep is able to think like a hunter behind the camera and, therefore, captured excellent footage for the Duckmen DVD series. Previously, he also videoed footage for the Benelli Presents Duck Commander TV show.
Jep continues with the goal his father began years ago, to bring the “Duckmen style” of hunting out of the swamps, into the editing room, and into the homes of duck hunting enthusiasts around the world. Making his film debut in Duckmen X stoked Jep’s passion for capturing his family’s hunts on camera. That title remains his favorite Duckmen DVD to date. Jep and his family also star in A&E’s hit series, Duck Dynasty.
Jessica Robertson and Jep have been married for more than fourteen years. As Jep’s wife, Jessica fits right in with the family. As a child she grew up hunting on the weekends with her father in the woods of Louisiana. She and Jep met in 2001, and they were married within two weeks of announcing their engagement. Jessica also has a business background, as do many in the Robertson family, but not from working at Duck Commander. She previously worked in real estate as a licensed real estate agent and most recently worked in sales.
Jep and Jessica live in West Monroe, Louisiana with their four children: Lily, Merritt, Priscilla, and River.
