Jake came to Davis in 2001 to study at UC Davis and graduated with a B.A. in Religious Studies. He met his wife Laura while attending college and after being married they decided to make Davis their home. They have 2 beautiful girls, Anna and Sarah. Jake works on campus with visiting college students helping them to adjust to our community, learn about our city and university and be a part of Davis.
Jake has a deep love and affection for Discovery Christian Church. Jake grew up in the church and recognized early on that Jesus was the great rescuer and has seen God demonstrate His faithfulness throughout his life. Jake's spiritual journey has been wrapped up in a body of believers who were willing to come alongside him and accept him with his faults and weaknesses and encourage him in who God has called him to be. Jake is excited to be an elder at Discovery to help the church follow Jesus, because he knows that by following Jesus we can find peace, hope and love.
