Trino Jimenez

GRIP participant

Trino Jimenez is a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and man of deep faith. He was given an amazing gift in 2015 when the opportunity was before him to write to the man responsible for his brother’s death many years earlier. After two years of letter exchange on March 16, 2017 Trino took a trip to Solano State Prison to participate in a VOD (Victim Offender Dialogue) a face to face meeting and a day of healing. Then in April of 2018 Trino once again returned to the Prison in a neutral support of the responsible party in his parole hearing, then again in December of 2019 another parole hearing took place and Trino was able to witness a transformed man be found suitable, after serving 34 years of incarceration.

This experience opened the door to participating in many Restorative Justice programs, a visit to the State Capitol, Universities, sharing to State Legislators his story, his trauma and his journey of healing,

Trino hopes to continue on this path of healing and hopes to share a space with the person who caused so much devastation and pain by joining him in sharing with those who are in need of healing and hope. It is a story of brokenness used to mend the broken.

Trino Jimenez lives in Whittier California
