About Jazzy Cheesecakes
Jazzy Cheesecakes is a specialty bakery with more than 75 different flavors of cheesecake, including several seasonal flavors. We also offer a variety of desserts: cheesecake duo, cheesecake stuffed apples, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, cobblers, pies, push pops, – just to name a few. We are committed to using fresh, high-quality ingredients. Our desserts are as deliciously wholesome as they are beautifully decorated.
Established in 2004, baking became a way to help the owner, Gerri Brown-Simmons cope with the loss of her uncle, Jazzy. She credits the man who was like a father to her for being her inspiration.
A couple of our signature items are the cheesecake-duo: cheesecake with sheet cake layered in between and the cheesecake-stuffed apples with layers of white chocolate on the outside and creamy cheesecake piped into the apple’s core.
At Jazzy’s we are more than just cheesecake.
Jazzy Cheesecakes is committed to maintaining a bakery that creates fresh baked goods from scratch. We are devoted to creating and maintaining a safe and professional environment in which our staff, customers and vendors want to partake in achieving shared success.
We take delight in the idea that our desserts are enjoyed by families and friends, making us a special part of personal celebrations and memories.
Meet Our Owner
Baking is my passion…
It relaxes me…
Aside from my family, baking is my one true love.
Gerri Brown-Simmons has been baking cheesecakes for more than 16 years. Her passion for baking began in high school when she enrolled in the culinary arts program. After graduating from Johnson and Wales University, she worked as a district deli/bakery lead trainer for five years for a major grocery store.
While working full-time, she baked her cheesecakes at night and on weekends, selling desserts at local farmers markets. Selling wholesale desserts to restaurants, allowed her business to grow and she moved her business from her house to a commercial kitchen. Pregnant with her first child in 2015, she opened her storefront in the Northlake Mall area, naming the bakery in honor of her late uncle “Jazzy”. Jazzy Cheesecakes offers more than 75 different flavors of cheesecake, including several seasonal flavors. Walk-in customers have 20-25 flavors available for purchase daily.
Gerri is married to the love of her life, Shai and they have two young children, Micah and Miciah. Her family is her inspiration and keeps her motivated and focused.
