Jake was born and raised in Stuart, Florida. His passion for the ocean and all things water began at a young age. Throughout his youth, Jake spent most of his time at the beach and on the water sailing, jet skiing, adventuring on his family’s boat, and volunteering as a camp counselor in Jensen Beach, where he taught kids about our marine ecosystem. Jake was a member of his high school sailing team, and began taking classes at Chapman’s School of Seamanship at age 17. His gravitation toward the yachting industry came naturally, as his father and older brother are also boat Captains. Jake began his first job on a yacht directly out of high school at age 19, and never looked back. Throughout his years in the yachting industry, Jake has been able to exercise his natural boat handling abilities and positive, adventurous spirit to create fun and memorable experiences for guests.
