After earning a degree in Kinesiology Jake stayed on with Brooks holding positions in the merchandising, customer service and sales departments during the 10 years he worked there.
Jake left the beer business for six years from 1998 until 2004 during which time he ran his own small business and utilized his degree by teaching and coaching in the Conroe Independent School District.

His responsibilities include managing all aspects of the branch’s activities concerning sales, merchandising, marketing, warehouse operations, delivery, and administration.
