Local restauranteur among victims in fatal St. Paul shooting

Larry Jiles, Jr. at the Winter Farmers Market last November.

ST. PAUL – Centerville lost a well-loved businessman and community personality this weekend with the death of Larry Jiles Jr., known locally as “Chef Hot Hands.” 

Jiles operated his restaurant and catering business Chef Hot Hands in Centerville, and many in the community remember his generosity and positive energy. He was born in St. Paul, raised in Hugo and graduated from White Bear Schools in 2006. He was a familiar face at community events such as Good Neighbor Days, and often willing to go the extra mile to give back to the community.
