Young entrepreneur honors veterans

The Colony, TX

Meet Jasmine “Jazzy” Cuchens from The Colony, Texas. She’s an amazing 10-year-old young lady with two passions: to bake and to honor veterans. She is quite the entrepreneur with a business of her own, Jazzy Sassy Scones.

Jazzy is the granddaughter of a Navy veteran who served in Vietnam. Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day are always honored and celebrated in her home. After losing her grandfather earlier this year, she decided she wanted to honor veterans during Memorial Day weekend. She set up her beautiful Jazzy Sassy Scones stand in her front yard and announced she would be treating veterans to her amazing scones. Mary Garcia, Post 21 commander-elect, and Patricia Zuczek, Post 21 adjutant, took her up on her offer. Garcia said, “Jazzy is such a remarkable young lady. It was such an honor to meet her and hear her story. Her passion shows in her eyes and voice. As for her scones, they are yummylicious and I’m coming back for more.”

Jazzy started her baking business mid-pandemic last summer when she was looking for something to do. Her idea came when she spotted a recipe for shortcakes. She made a batch for her family and it was a hit. She and her parents teamed up to create new flavors. After making her first sale last July, Jazzy Sassy Scones was born and there was no turning back.

Jazzy Sassy Scones is no ordinary business. It is quite clear that Jazzy is the CEO. She has a great support team with her mother Laurie as “Head of Marketing” and her father Billy as “Head of Kitchen Operations.” The online orders just keep coming. In fact, Jazzy Sassy Scones has been featured on "Good Morning America" and the local news.

Remember the name Jasmine “Jazzy” Cuchens. There is no doubt she is on a fast track to success. Zuczek continued, “On a weekend we dedicate to honoring the sacrifices of the veterans who have passed on, it was so nice to meet a young person who will be carrying on this tradition of remembering our veterans for the future.”
