Jake Moore, Sr. presented with Key to the City of Irmo last week

Irmo, SC 04/252023 - On April 18, Moore Bradley Myers (MBM) Senior Founding Partner, Jake Moore, Sr., received the Key to the City from the Town of Irmo. Moore is known for being just as tenacious of an advocate for his clients in the courtroom as he is at being a philanthropist that has impacted every corner of the Midlands.

Among the specifics of being given the Key to the City in Irmo are Moore’s work to secure land for the Irmo Veterans Park, serving as the Founder of the Irmo Arbor Day Committee, and donating trees to beautify many public spaces. Since 2009, the Town of Irmo was one of the first of the 41 local governments in South Carolina to receive the prestigious designation as a Tree City USA. The Irmo Arbor Day Committee has planted more than 4,000 trees in the Town of Irmo.

Moore’s giving spirit doesn’t stop at the Irmo town limits. He was named the Greater Cayce West Columbia Chamber of Commerce’s Citizen of the Year and has been honored as the Founding Member of the West Columbia Beautification Foundation. In 2022, Moore donated and helped plant a tree with the first graders at East Point Academy in West Columbia in honor of Arbor Day. Moore also worked to donate trees to several local churches, roads, interchanges, churches, schools, and parks across the region. This includes his home church of Ashland United Methodist Church, where he served as a Sunday School teacher for 45 years. He is also passionate about literacy and co-authored a children’s book, “Bruce the Moose,” with his daughter, and continues to read the book to students across the state.

At the April 18 Town Council Meeting, Irmo Mayor, Barry A. Walker, Sr., stated, that Jake and the attorneys at Moore Bradley Myers have “guided the Town through complex legal issues and always prevailed,” and that he was honored to present Jake Moore, Sr. with the Key to the City, for all he has done on a personal and professional level for the Town. Moore has been the Town Attorney for decades. This is only the third time that a Key to the City has been awarded by the Town of Irmo.

Moore Bradley Myers Managing Partner, Christian Spradley, shared “Jake is not slowing down at the office or in the community. Jake means so much to our lawyers and our staff; not only for his leadership, but also for his sense of humor and his staunch enthusiasm to the notion that by giving back to our community, we can make a difference.”

On October 26, 2022, Moore was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He has been receiving treatment, had surgery in March; still, Jake’s passion for his family, his faith, his friends, his clients, and his community, runs strong.
