Jerry Watson

My name is Jerry Watson and I currently work as a Digital Forensics Examiner for Department of Defense.  I have conducted forensic examinations on all types of digital media for the past three years.  I have also testified and provided expert opinion on several trials.  

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and have begun studying to complete my Master?s Degree in Computer Forensics.  I am a GIAC Certified Forensic Examiner, EnCase Certified Examiner, Magnet Certified Forensic Examiner, Cellebrite Certified Physical Analyst, Berla Vehicle Forensic Examiner, and Department of Defense Certified Forensic Examiner.

I have worked alongside numerous other Forensic Examiners, Attorneys, and Case Agents in federal crimes concerning digital media and have provided expert witness testimony in federal courts.  Computer forensics is my specialty and I have completed examinations on various types of computers and operating systems, including Macintosh systems.

During my free time, I enjoy watching sports and I am an avid weight lifter.  I also coach an Amateur Athletic Union basketball coach, where I am an NCAA and Junior NBA certified coach.
