HCUO: What is something that you wish more people knew about you?
Jake: I have a big heart, and I really care about everyone in my life, and there’s always room for more.
HCUO: Who is your biggest role model?
Jake: Honestly, my dad because he’s a very strong-willed person and a hard worker.
HCUO: If I were to walk into your bedroom right now, what would I find?
Jake: Right now? A pile of white…clean…laundry, my snowboard, a LOT of sneakers (I love my kicks), and my TV. But on a regular basis, there is clothing strewn around.
HCUO: What was your favorite boy band in elementary school?
Jake: Sorry to say it, but…Backstreet Boys. I was supposed to perform in my fourth grade talent show with a couple of my friends, but I bailed.
HCUO: Do you play any sports?
Jake: In high school, I played basketball, golf, and baseball. I also like to snowboard, but I think my passion is golf because I’ve been playing it my whole life, and it’s something I will continue to do for a long time.
HCUO: What do you consider cheating in a relationship?
Jake: Oh, wow…I think the boundary is crossed when it starts to get physical, even if that just means kissing or making out.
HCUO: If you could speak to any type of animal, what would it be and why?
Jake: Probably a penguin because then I would be able to hang out with them, and you know they have a good time!
HCUO: What is your favorite quote and why?
Jake: “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” I like this quote because that’s kind of how I’ve lived my life. I like to experience new things, and I think my experiences have shaped who I am.
HCUO: What’s your “type”?
Jake: Someone who’s fun, that I can just hang out with. I’ve always liked adventurous girls that are outgoing, real, faithful, and down to try new things.
HCUO: Do you have any hidden talents that collegiettes™ should know about?
Jake: I’m pretty good at impersonations…my Australian accent is bar none. (Author’s note: It really is.)
HCUO: Any further comments or kudos?
Jake: Carpe diem; go Yankees.
