Downtown Jacksonville is on the rise, bringing innovation, artistic vision, and a sense of community to the forefront. A great deal of that comes from the ambition and commitment, turned to execution, of risk takers and local business owners, such as Theawona Jeffers. Jeffers, 52, is an entrepreneur that has brought a wide array of talent, uniqueness and creativity to Jacksonville Florida.
Theawona Jeffers is the Owner and Founder of T-works Interior Decorating and Breezy Jazz Club. Born in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, the mother of four and grandmother of one left Corporate America in 2005 to start her own interior design business. She found the beauty in design at the early age of 12 and set her sights for fashion design school. Jeffers attended the College for Fashion Design and Interior in Long Beach California in 1983. Through her experiences in fashion, from designing wedding dresses, prom dresses and full ensembles, she navigated her way to interior spaces. Jeffers decorated several homes out of the pure desire to create, before opening her business and starting to take on bigger projects.
