- "No i'm not going to be fine...I'm dying, but it's okay...I wanna see my Dad and Mom again..."
- —Jake telling Robert that he is dying.
Jake was first introduced in Chapter 17: Summer, and is a main protagonist in the Ascension. Prior to Jake's introduction, Corbin, Jim and Donnovan had been on a supply run, when they encountered Jake's bitten father. After Corbin killed the man, Donnovan took his jacket. Jake later encountered the trio, knowing that they'd killed his father, since Donnovan had been wearing his jacket. Donnovan and the others brought Jake back to Crown Point, where he mostly kept to himself. Despite the two getting off to a heated and hostile relationship, Robert and Jake have grown to be best friends.
Nothing is known about Jake's life prior to the apocalypse besides that he had a mother and a father. His mother died sometime in the initial outbreak and he had been surviving with his father until his father was bitten.
