Jason Harvey early life
Jason Harvey was born on August 27, 1991, to Marjorie Harvey and Jim Townsend. Jason was only one year old when his biological father, Jim Townsend, was arrested in 1992. During that time, the FBI and DEA had accused Jim of running a substantial illegal drug business, and the court later charged him for life imprisonment for his crime.
After the incident, Jason’s mother, Marjorie, divorced Jim Townsend and married another drug kingpin named Donnell Woods. Jason never publicly talks about his biological father, but we believe he never got to know him while growing up as the court sentenced Jim to jail until 2017.
Jason Harvey family
Jason Harvey’s biological father, Jim Townsend, was a former Memphis drug kingpin married to Marjorie Elaine Harvey in the early 1990s. The FBI and DEA authority arrested Jim during a sting operation in 1992. During the arrest, the police authority caught Jim attempting to buy 40 kilos of cocaine.
After the arrest, the court sentenced Jim to life imprisonment for his crimes. However, Townsend only served 26 years of his sentence and was pardoned by former US President Barack Obama in January 2017.
About mother Marjorie Harvey
All through Jim Townsend’s investigation, Marjorie was also accused of helping her husband commit crimes. At the time of the investigation, the media reported that she would be arrested as the FBI and DEA had substantial evidence of her illegal activities. Luckily. The court never charged Marjorie with a crime, and she divorced Townsend in less than five years of his sentence.
Today, Jason’s mother is a successful socialite, fashion icon, and internet personality. Marjorie also runs an initiative called ‘The Lady Loves Couture,’ which addresses women’s beauty needs and shows them how to live a lavish life on any budget.

Jason Harvey career
Jason is the creative director, producer, designer, artist, and co-owner of a luxury footwear brand called ‘Yevrah.’ Jason and his business partner Erwin Sweetwine had established the footwear brand around 2013. The name ‘Yevrah’ comes from Jason’s surname ‘Harvey,’ spelled backward.
The shoes that Yevrah sells are entirely handmade and produced in Brazil. According to Jason, the company’s primary goal is to create comfortable shoes and present them uniquely and artistically into an installation form. To execute their vision, Jason and his business partner showcased their products in one of the most significant art events conducted worldwide called ‘Art Basel.’
Art Basel is a for-profit, privately owned, and managed international art fair staged annually in Basel, Switzerland, Miami Beach, Florida, and Hong Kong. Jason Harvey used the platform of Art Basel to showcase Yevrah’s artistic footwear in 2016. In the footage shown by ‘Steve TV show,’ one can witness how Jason is devoted to executing his vision and bringing them to life.
In the end, most of the audience, including Jason’s mother, who visited the showcase, was impressed with Jason and his team’s work. One of the visitors even said, “It’s not your typical pair of shoes where you just glance at them and say ‘Oh wow, those are nice’ like you have to stare at them and get close up. It was beautiful.”
The lowest-priced shoes found on the Yevrah website cost $135, while the highest and most expensive ones are the pointy and high heeled cork boots, which are priced at $450.
Apart from being an exceptional entrepreneur, Jason is also charitable too. In 2018, he pulled up with a truckload of Yevrah shoes and gifted them to every single woman at All Nations Worship Assembly in Atlanta, Georgia.
