THE COOKIE BOYS
June 2008 - Present 


Ten+ years ago Jeffrey and Joseph Heilman decided to take mom's cookie recipe and start going door to door with fresh hot cookies. They sold out in 20 minutes! The following week they sold again, then again... then there was the Sunday they didn't go. Our neighbor's came knocking on the door!!

Pastry Chef, Flower Flour Patisserie
At 15 Jeffrey began a year long internship at a local French Bakery, he then worked himself up to by the age of 17 to AM Baker overseeing pastries. He has worked at Flower Flour for over 5 years. Jeffrey has also served as a line cook in two downtown San Jose Restaurants, and loves food!

THE COOKIE BOYS
June 2008 - Present
 
Joseph has always had an adventurous spirit and a desire to be in business. Before he and his brother Jeffrey formed The Cookie Boys, one could find Joseph selling candy bars in the park or lemonade at a lemonade stand. It was Joseph's idea to begin selling cookies door to door in addition to designing the company logo and merchandise.
Manager, Main Street Burgers
In order to help the boys become the best team possible, Joseph began working at 16 years old with a local restaurant selling gourmet hamburgers as an understudy to the District Manager in the efforts to learn Restaurant Management first hand and give him hands on experience in running a brick and mortar restaurant for the future of TCB.
Owner and Original Creator @marvelousjokes
@marvelousjokes is an Instagram account which began with 0 followers in 2015 and now boasts over 375,000 followers. Posting jokes, memes, and other ha ha's leading to the followers LOL's has been a fun past time. Joe now has a hired admin to help him with the account as it takes quite a bit of time to manage!
LA Cookie Con Vendor, Demonstration and Educator
If you happened to catch TCB's presentation at CookieCon you would have seen Joseph on stage presenting as the companies lead Spokesperson. Joseph enjoys speaking in front of a crowd and has quite a great sense of humor.
Junior Olympic Springboard Diver, Stanford Dive Club
Joseph began his diving career at 11 years old with USA Diving and quickly began excelling in the competitive sport over the course of the next 7 years Joseph has made it to competition in at the National level multiple times, and traveled to many states diving - even as far as Florida! Having aged out at 18 from the Junior Olympic competitive level, Joseph has decided to continue to dive in college and will begin next winter in his first Collegiate Competitions.
Joseph enjoys playing Fortnite, hanging out with his friends and going on long motorcycle rides on his Triumph Daytona - in what color? Cookie Boy yellow... of course.

Unschooling in America by Jessica Heilman

"America is in DIRE need of Education Reform. Grading a child based on an antiquated grading system is KILLING the creativity and inspirations of the youth in America. 

Children are expected to "earn" straight A's in areas they are not gifted or interested in. Their very health and mental well being is taxed and they are left grasping for straws. The suicide rate in High School is absolutely alarming and totally preventable!

Twelve years ago we as a family decided to forgo all traditional education in favor of 'project based free play' learning. Our children have been on Nationally Ranked television shows, competed at the Junior Olympic level, they have traveled across country, started their own businesses and preformed on stages with professionals. 

Just saying 'NO' to textbooks, State testing and organized learning has been EXACTLY what our children have needed to build their self esteem, gumption, and over all zeal for life!"

This book will be coming out soon - TBA
