SANTA CRUZ, California – A man who works three jobs to support his family — including one as a limousine driver — has won a $39 million jackpot in California's SuperLotto Plus.
Clyde Persley, who is married with a 4-year-old daughter, turned in his winning ticket on Tuesday night and should get his first check for about $16 million in four to six weeks, said a California lottery spokeswoman.
The 49-year-old Santa Cruz man operates candy-making machines for Santa Cruz Nutritionals, drives a limousine and picks up extra hours at a restaurant.
He says his first moves will be taking his wife on a trip to Hawaii and hiring a financial adviser.
He bought his winning ticket at a Santa Cruz market where he has played the lottery twice a week for several years.
