Chelsea was born on March 9, 1987 in Newport News, Virginia to the union of Alfredia Jean Jones-Robinson and Franklin “Buzz” Jones (deceased). Chelsea spent her childhood years growing up between Cleveland, Ohio and Hampton, Virginia.
Chelsea leaves to cherish her memories, her only child, Theodore Linwood Cooper IV (Ty), her mother, Alfredia Jean Jones-Robinson, stepfather Derick Robinson, brothers, Travis Jones, and Christopher Jones (Salote Jones), along with her younger sister, Linsea Cunningham. She also leaves to cherish her memories, grandparents, Reverend Winston Beverly (Hampton, Virginia), Mary and Ernest Jones (Cleveland, Ohio). Chelsea also loved her grandmother, Bernice Beverly, who proceeded her in death. Chelsea would always share how much of an influence her grandmother had in her life.
Chelsea also leaves to cherish her memory, many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, great cousins, great-great cousins, and Godchildren. She also leaves many friends that she loved dearly, and they loved her back just the same.
At the time of her death, Chelsea resided in Washington, D.C. where she was employed with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Chelsea had a very large impact on many of the housing projects around the D.C. area. Starting out at seventeen years old managing various apartment complexes in the Hampton Roads area, Chelsea quickly excelled in her career, holding the grade of GS-13. She loved her job and her coworkers.
Chelsea was a beautiful girl who blossomed into a gorgeous, driven, and intelligent young woman. Full of life and very determined to achieve all goals she set for herself, there was nothing that she couldn’t achieve. Chelsea was a true example of how self-discipline and motivation can take you as far as you want to go. Anyone who knew Chelsea knew that she was not finished and had so much more to accomplish.
Chelsea loved her home and hosting her family and friends. Wherever Chelsea was, a good time was never too far behind. She loved all things natural body and skin care, cooking, and growing and planting her own herbs. Much like her mother, Chelsea loved home décor and shopping at HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, and Marshall’s. She also loved visiting the beach.
Chelsea enjoyed fashion and she would take pride in her wardrobe. She enjoyed collecting designer handbags and shoes. Chelsea always made the outfit when she wore it, it wasn’t the outfit that made her!
An avid lover of Audrey Hepburn, Chelsea also enjoyed vintage movies and styles. Her style was much inspired by different vintage pieces, and she displayed some of the artwork in her home.
Rest our Chelsea! We love you and God only knows how much you will be missed. Our hearts will never be the same.
