San Antonio’s Jefferson Bodega owner returns to work after heart surgery

In a post with a photo of Luke looking bright and healthier, he says that he is feeling much better but is still not fully recovered after his open heart surgery. 

“I’m still not 100% and won’t be for some time but I’m getting there,” Luke says in the post. 

Luke announced that he was diagnosed with heart disease in late June, where he and his wife Lisa, who is also co-owner, decided to close the store for a few days. When it reopened in July, the store was operated by Lisa and Jefferson Bodega’s employees on a limited schedule to allow her time to help Luke recover. 

Luke says that he has received an outpouring of kind words, cards, letters, gifts, prayers, and “good vibes.” 

“Your comments and messages literally got me through the worst of it,” he says in the post. “And it is y’all that are my inspiration to come back and do even more.”
