Cary was Vice President and partner of Jay-Cee Sales & Rivet in Farmington, MI. Jay-Cee Sales was started in 1948 by Jack Clinton in Detroit, Michigan on Grand River. The store began as an Army/Navy supply store as well as other basic goods. Soon after the business opened, Jack was joined by his son Louis Clinton. In the coming years business continued to grow. In 1969 Louis’s son-in-law, Cary Weitzman joined the company. Shortly thereafter, Louis’s son Michael Clinton joined the company in 1972. In 1973, Jay-Cee Sales decided to divest all of their threaded products and concentrate on rivets.
