I wrote my exact build on page 3, right below Guinsoo's post. And yes, that's top lane Jayce. Although, I still buy Triforce first even if I go mid Jayce. Champions that counter Jayce? To be honest, none really. Provided you're good enough, it's possible to win ANY match up as Jayce. Yorick is probably the hardest match up though. I found that throwing a flask in my build really helped out though vs Yorick. Jax is scary if he gets ahead of you, but it's possible to beat him too. Elise is tricky cuz her stun can interrupt your hammer portion of the combo, but she's beatable too.
I often use Rengar as my go to champion to counter jayce. If you dodge the skill shots you can out dps him with the double Q. This is especially true since Jayce will often knock you back right away so it's important to unload your damage as fast as possible, something burst champs excel at.
Countering Jayce just really comes down to dodging the accelerated shock blasts honestly and then punishing him.
