Sam is the 3rd generation owner of JC Sipe Jewelers, following in the footsteps of his Grandfather Jacob Corpany Sipe (JC) and his Father Carroll Sipe (CE). Sam began running the jewelry store upon graduating with a business degree from Indiana University (IU). In addition, Sam studied gemology thru the Gemmological Institute of America (GIA). Sam is the proud father of two sons, Sam A & Colin, and grandfather to two grandchildren, Harrison & Cora. Secondary only to his passion for the jewelry business is his love of golf...he is a 34 year member of Highland Country Club. Sam has also been an active member of the Columbia Club for the past 45 years. When it became time to find a permanent home for JC Sipe Jewelers, Sam hunted throughout Indianapolis to find the perfect property. While inspecting a possible site with his realtor, Sam spied an empty lot across the street which was just right. The owner of the lot happened to be a long time client of the jewelry store...fate brought them together & the store was built under his watchful eye & the guidance of a much beloved friend. Now in the new location since 2002, Sam continues to captain his business, JC Sipe Jewelers. Pop by to visit him soon.
