After serving in the Navy, Jake met and married Dixie Yvonne Davis Bundrick. Together, they had four children and lived the majority of their life in Lexington, SC.
Jake was a self-employed Masonry Contractor and worked mainly in Lexington and Richland counties for over 30 years. He was very talented and creative with his craft and had a way to bring visions to life.
Jake was a past Master of Lexington Masonic Lodge 152, a charter member of The Jamil Temple Hillbilly unit, a member of Lexington Baptist Church and The Country Club of Lexington.
Jake loved his wife, his children and his grandchildren. He was a very passionate man that loved deeply but struggled greatly to find inner peace and express himself in a way others could receive him. He was all in with whatever he took on, and you didn’t have to wonder where you stood or what he was thinking.
