Mark Jeffrey Cumins

Mark Jeffrey Cumins, 66, of Charleston, South Carolina, husband of Noula Tassios Cumins, entered into eternal rest Thursday, October 5, 2023. His funeral service will be held graveside Friday, October 13, 2023 in Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Cemetery, Huguenin Avenue at 11:00 a.m. Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. Downtown Chapel.

Mark was born December 11, 1956 in Augusta, Georgia, son of the late Jerome Cumins and Phyllis Levy Cumins. He was a successful businessman, restauranteur, and philanthropist. He and his business partner, Jerry Scheer, have been a significant part of the fabric of not only the Charleston community, but also communities across the southeast for nearly four decades. For all his success, he remained a humble man who only cared about bringing joy and laughter to the people around him. He had the unique ability to connect with people and make them feel special.

Above all else, he was the most loving husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend, and he enriched the lives of all he encountered. No matter where he found himself in the world, he never met a stranger. Mark will be missed beyond measure.

Mark is survived by his wife of 17 years, Noula; two sons: Jakob Cumins and Joshua Cumins, all of Charleston, SC; three sisters: Ilene Turbow of Charleston, SC, Joan Arazie (Sam) of Augusta, GA, and Cindy Brams (Joe) of Charleston, SC; and many beloved nieces, nephews, extended family, and his two dogs, Sebastian and Poppy.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Mark & Noula Cumins Nursing Scholarship at the Roper St. Francis Foundation, 100 Calhoun Street, Suite 210, Charleston, SC 29401.
