Scott was born on July 26, 1970 to Lynn and Debbie (Draeger) Jaycox, in Webster City, Iowa. He was a 1988 graduate of Webster City High School. He attended Hawkeye Tech. where during the photography program he met Juli Kuebler. They were married in Bettendorf, Iowa on October 10, 1992. The couple lived in Bettendorf for five years, during that time Scott worked at the Camera Corner then VanPelt Drywall. About the time their son Cooper was born, Scott’s Uncle Rodney, Lynn and Scott decided to carry on the father son portion of the Jaycox Construction business. The three moved to rural Duncombe and soon after the three became four when daughter Maia was born.
Scott was a true outdoorsman, to him hunting and fishing were one word. He enjoyed trips to Canada to fish with his friends, but his most cherished times were spent at his Grandpa Draeger’s farm teaching his son and daughter the value of a good tree stand. Saturday mornings weren’t spent watching cartoons, they were spent watching ‘whispering’ shows, aka The Outdoor Channel.
He was a great contractor and husband, but his first and most loved job was being a dad. Whether it was the 100-degree soccer tournaments or the backstage dance prop handling he was there. He was their toughest coach and biggest fan.
Scott enjoyed hosting Wednesday night ‘Golf League’, being a bourbon connoisseur, as well as being a member of Rotary After Hours, National Wild Turkey Federation and Pheasants Forever. He was also a member of Trinity Lutheran Church.
