Jennifer “Jédon” Hatcher is native of the metropolitan area of Washington, DC. Jédon earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing with honors and an Associate’s in Business Management. She has worked in the financial and marketing industries. She moved to Atlanta to follow her dreams of working in the entertainment industry. There she found her purpose. To create art which delivers positive and motivating messages to the masses.
Working various jobs in multiple industries, Jédon did not always have the courage to walk in her purpose of being an award winning television and film producer. Her struggles with those corporate positions were directly related to not pursuing what she was born to do. She asked herself, “What’s the worst that can happen”?
Jédon started her journey with a detour in Los Angeles. Due to poor planning she did not break into the industry, and left “Tinsel Town” after two years. She remained motivated and believed in her destiny. She committed herself to the vision and developed a clear plan before relocating to Atlanta, one of the country’s top filming locations.
Jedon took several production assistant boot camps and courses in preparation for #setlife. Once settled in Atlanta, she began to plant roots in the entertainment business working on projects with Tyler Perry Studios, BET, The OWN Network, TV One, Bounce TV, and numerous independent projects. She has filled many roles on set and in basecamp from Key Set PA, to working directly with cast as Cast Assistant, to a Producer’s Assistant. She even utilized her talents as Script Supervisor and Production Manager.
Jedon is a natural leader, the Co-Founder of First Team Production LLLP, and Co-Founder of the non-profit Sister’s Creating Content (SCC), an organization developed to aid minority women in the television and film industry. The ultimate goal is to give back to her community in a culturally respective manner through love, spirituality, intelligence, and class.
