Jamie returned to Odessa and worked with his father in the road construction business until 1964, when he moved his family to Sonora, Texas.

Jamie served as a founding director of Sutton County National Bank, now The Bank and Trust, established in 1983 and continued to serve on its board of directors as well as that of West Texas BanCorp until his death.
