NOCATEE, Fla. — Jameson Shaw, a young baker from St. Johns County, is now navigating the business world. The 13-year-old entrepreneur is doing it in memory of her grandfather, who battled Alzheimer’s.
“My Poppy had Alzheimer’s, and I decided that I wanted to raise money so I could help other people with Alzheimer’s,” Shaw said.
He left behind a legacy in the River City, being the first President of the Sulzbacher Homeless Center in downtown Jacksonville.
“Kukidoodle makes me think about my dad [Poppy], and it makes me feel like we’re still helping,” Will Shaw, Jameson’s father said.
Despite the heartbreak of losing Poppy, the Shaw’s persevered. Jameson continued her cookie business, throughout a global pandemic.
“I sold them at Joint Bagel, and I sold them to people in my neighborhood,” Shaw said. “Then it started to become really popular.”
