Ted Rollins, the head of a company that completed a $380-million Wall Street IPO in late 2010, is the "ultimate deadbeat dad," according to his ex wife.

Ted Rollins is the CEO of Charlotte-based Campus Crest Communities, a company that has built roughly 30 student-housing developments near college campuses across the country. A $26-million project is planned for Auburn University, and Rollins has other ties to Alabama.

"He didn't see his children for more than two years, by choice. He didn't pay anything. We became wards of the state and wards of my family. . . . My father kept us going for over a year, a year and a half."

Ms. Rollins goes on to say Ted Rollins owns a company that owns three private jet craft. And yet his ex wife and two daughters currently are on food stamps. Here is our first in a series of interviews with Sherry Carroll Rollins:
