As an original farmer of 30 years, I decided to take on a new venture in 2002. Impressed by the knowledge and physical appearance of my oldest son, we opened the doors of JAK Moulding & Supply. Over the time I have enjoyed watching the business grow into what it is today. I thoroughly enjoy new adventures in business including expanding JAK more into the building industry as well as flipping houses around the area. Outside of JAK, I enjoy the time spent with our family at the lake and the memories made with each of our grandchildren.
Before JAK was established, I was a part of the vision. Throughout the process, I have been able to work in every position of the company including moulding operator, delivery, sales, and now management. I’ve enjoyed watching the company grow over the years by observing each customers desires surpassed on every job we complete. Outside of JAK, I am happily married with two children, I love American Ninja Warrior, and I am privileged to serve at New Direction Church in Snow Hill.
We would thoroughly enjoy working with you on your next project or new construction house!
Bio Coming Soon!
Throughout the years I have worked with many contractors to provide exceptional service to them and their clients. I am passionate about the products and services that we offer and view each new job as an opportunity to provide quality materials from an industry leading company with outstanding service. Outside of JAK, I am extensively involved in the community serving as President of the Greene County Chamber of Commerce, Vice President of the Greene County Community Foundation, member of the Board of Directors for the Eastern North Carolina Workforce Development, Town Commissioner of Walstonburg, Commander of American Legion Post 332, Chair person for Proud To Be An American Day, and Veteran Service Officer for Greene County.
I look forward to working with you on your next home or remodel project!
I am an avid outdoorsman that loves to fish and spend time on the golf course.
I have a wife and together we welcomed our beautiful daughter into our family in 2017.
In July of 2017, I joined the JAK team as the inventory manager. I knew eventually I wanted to be a part
of the sales team and when an opportunity was presented, I didn’t look back.
I love being on different job sites daily and seeing the progress and design ideas from each contractor and homeowner, while providing my professional advice as well.
I look forward to working with you on your upcoming projects!
Originally from Elmira, NY, I received a Bachelors Degree in Interior Design from East Carolina University in 2013. Upon completion, I moved to the Outer Banks of North Carolina where I met my loving husband, Quinton Hellyer. During my professional career, I have worked in the interior design industry by designing interior beach houses to designing and remodeling kitchens and bathroom projects. I joined the JAK team in 2015 as the Kitchen and Bath Designer. Working with each homeowner and contractor to develop the best design and selection for the budget is what I enjoy most. No matter the size of your upcoming project, I would be glad to work with you on your design and selections!
I graduated from NC State College of Textiles with my degree in Business and Brand Management. While living in Raleigh, I spent many years designing homes and interiors. From forming house plans to hand selecting fabrics and wallpapers, I was able to see the job from start to finish. Since then, I moved to Trenton to be closer to family and the coast. As of September 2021, I am excited to announce JAK has expanded and opened a showroom in New Bern-JAK Kitchen & Bath. This new location offers a wide variety of cabinet lines, countertops, and hardware displays to accommodate every need. More importantly, it offers a larger, more remote workspace for clients near New Bern and surrounding eastern NC counties. Being a local to the area, these towns are very near and dear to my heart, and I am looking forward to executing every project with passion and diligence.
After graduating from college with a bachelors in Business Management and a concentration in Small Business and Entrepreneurship I decided to join the family business full time. It has been such a privilege to have the opportunity to work with family. I married my husband, JD Hightower in April 2012 and we welcome our first son Jase in May 2016 and our second son Reed in May 2018. Outside of JAK I like to spend time with my family, sell real estate, and help serve at New Direction Church.
