As a young kid growing up in Washington, Jake had a thirst for skateboarding. He loved the sport and wanted to make a name for himself. But during his early years, Jake suffered a massive injury that put an end to his dreams. This pushed Jake towards alcohol and drugs. It took him nearly two years and life as a homeless to realize that he would never be a skateboarder. Faced with a new reality, Jake began working towards a new career in fishing.
