While studying Psychology at Kent State, Timmons decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment. Although he received several acting jobs (including a commercial for the U.S. Navy), his passion belonged to music and he formed a singing group. The group formed independently and were later signed to the Motown label in the mid-1990s. After building popularity with their appearance in the movie Mulan, singing "True to Your Heart," a duet with labelmate Stevie Wonder, their success broke out in late 1998 with their album 98 Degrees and Rising, which included the hit singles "The Hardest Thing", "I Do (Cherish You)" and "Because of You". After the first album, 98 Degrees left Motown for its parent company, Universal Records. All four albums released by the group went platinum. The group toured internationally through 2002. Jeff Timmons and his fellow 98 Degrees members came together to sing on Nick and Jessica's Christmas Special (2004).
Jeff and the other members of 98 Degrees decided to take a break to pursue other avenues, and Jeff launched his solo career by touring with Jim Brickman. After positive reviews, he wrote and arranged his first solo album, Whisper That Way, which was released in August 2004 and included the singles Whisper That Way, Better Days and Favorite Star. Although the latter two singles failed to chart in the US and the album failed to place on the Billboard 200 Albums chart, the track Whisper That Way managed to reach #20 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The album succeeded overseas as well with chart-topping hits in Japan, China and Malaysia.
Jeff and the boys of 98 degrees continue to write and release music.
