Jayme Kellogg Hooker founded Dapper Jay's Barber Shop in 2009. He was a licensed barber that graduated from The Associated Barber College of San Diego. His vision for his barber shop was simple ... To bring a traditional barber shop to the fine city of La Mesa, where he and his fellow co-workers could give back to the community through their trade and service. A few short years after the doors opened, Jayme passed away from complications due to an open heart surgery. His widow continues to keep the barber shop open to preserve his legacy and vision.
