Since Jamie’s arrival in 2005, all 5 St. Matthew’s House Thrift Stores have been recognized in the Resale Industry as model thrift stores. The St. Matthew’s House thrift stores outperform national sales averages in dollars earned per square foot by 400%.Our stores have been voted the best in Southwest Florida by the Naples Daily News readers 11 years in a row. Recently our Cafés and Car Wash have also received this same recognition.
Prior to St. Matthew’s House, Jamie owned and operated a Naples-based Christian bookstore Heavenbound Books, Music and More from 1993-2005. During this time, he was named a Top Five Christian Bookstore Manager in the USA by Spring Arbor Distributors. Before Heavenbound, Jamie managed Christ Centered Book and Music Store and worked in his family’s construction business.
A Naples native, Jamie graduated from Naples Christian Academy in 1980 and worked in various aspects of Christian ministry throughout the eighties, including street ministry and playing music in a Christian band. Jamie lives in Naples and has two beautiful daughters. Jamie enjoys playing guitar and spending time with his family and friends.
Jamie directs the Retail Operations of St. Matthew’s House by following Proverbs 16:3 Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.
This scriptural truth is demonstrated by the industry-leading growth and recognition St. Matthew’s House Thrift Stores have received under his leadership.
