As an entrepreneur, new business ventures for Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins include multiple real estate properties, Defiance Fuel Fitness Water, a partnership with American Cut Steakhouse and his ongoing partnership with global spirits brand Tequila Avion. Jeezy has been no stranger to the fashion world. With his “dare to be different” mentality, he is not afraid of a bold print or a bright color making a statement with everything he wears. Jeezy believes that whether you dress up, or dress down, as long as you feel good, you will look good. He has cultivated lifelong relationships with worldwide fashion houses such as Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Tom Ford, and Dolce & Gabbana. Jeezy launched his charity Street Dreamz Foundation over 10 years ago to consistently be involved in improving the lives of those less fortunate in the city of Atlanta. For his continuous community service efforts, he was awarded the Phoenix Award from the city of Atlanta–the highest honor an individual or group can receive from the Mayor of Atlanta, this year, he ran the Peachtree Road Race, a half marathon alongside the Mayor of Atlanta to raise money for his foundation and the city of Atlanta’s scholarship fund.
