Jarod Young is a Corrections Officer at Litchfield Maximum Security Penitentiary. He is portrayed by Branden Wellington.


Young is one of the nicer guards. He is moral and does not participate in Fantasy inmate, calling it a "slave auction" He gets mad at Luschek for trying to justify it. He is very professional at his job, following all protocols and not letting inmates get to him.

He is professional, always following procedure and standing up for inmates when COs are treating them as variables in Fantasy Inmate, making Copeland put Carol in AdSeg.

After Maria attempts to leave, he stops her saying that if he has to go through this, so does he. ("Double Trouble")
