Jeremy Meeks in the days leading up to his release, Meeks wrote, “Looking forward to reuniting with my family. Counting down the days. #6days #spreadtheword.”

A convicted felon whose handsome booking photo went viral was released from federal prison this week, and he is now entertaining job offers.

Jeremy Meeks was sentenced in February 2015 to two years in federal prison for a weapons violation. After serving more than a year at a facility near Stockton, Meeks is free -- well sort of.

“I want to thank my family and everybody for all your love, support and prayers,” he wrote on Instagram on Wednesday. “I'm overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead. I'm ready.”

After Meeks was greeted by his wife and three children Tuesday morning, he went to a transitional housing facility where he will remain for a few weeks before he is “completely free to start his new journey,” his manager, Jim Jordan, said.

“We have a lot in store regarding Jeremy’s new career,” Jordan said in a statement Wednesday. “There are a multitude of offers on the table. Jeremy is humbled and grateful and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers for him and his family.”
