Jewel’s unique story began on an Alaskan homestead—with no electricity—where her family survived off the land. Her families’ story is now documented in the successful Discovery Channel TV show, “Alaska, The Last Frontier.”
Jewel’s mom left at age eight. Her father was abusive forcing Jewel to leave home at fifteen. Jewel subsequently experienced homelessness. Her New York Times best-selling memoir, “Never Broken” chronicles how she used hard work, grit and grace to survive and thrive under these extreme circumstances.
Jewel founded Jewel Inc., which is a holding company for all of her passions and work in music, TV, film and entrepreneurial endeavors.
