Jep Robertson, short for Jules Jeptha Robertson, was born on May 28, 1978 in Bernice, Louisiana. Sadly, Jep had a tough childhood growing up. He was molested at age six by an older girl on the school bus, and therefore after would often fake sick to skip school. He fell in with the wrong crowd as a teenager and eventually became addicted to alcohol and drugs. His family staged an intervention and got him the help he needed.
Jep works in the family business. The Duck Commander company was founded in 1972, when Phil Robertson invented a revolutionary new kind of duck call. His calls went on to become very popular, and his son, Willie Robertson, now runs their internationally successful company which sells more than 600,000 duck calls per year in addition to millions of dollars worth of merchandise, memorabilia, DVDs, cooking products, apparel and more. Jep also records and edits many of the family's hunting expeditions, which have become popular viewing worldwide. The company also began selling hunting gear in addition to their duck call products.
"Duck Dynasty" began as two specials for the Outdoor Channel, one called "Duck Commander", and another called, "Buck Commander", before becoming a full-fledged series on A&E. The show consistently drew between 8 and 10 million viewers per episode, enough to make it one of the most popular shows on TV.
