Born and raised in Port Angeles, Jake’s experience in the YMCA Youth and Government program pointed him early on toward a life of public service. He was the first in his family to attend college, earning a BA in political science from the University of Washington and then an MPA from the University of Puget Sound.

Jake’s community involvement and professional life have always focused on the legacy we’ll leave for future generations. Big Brothers/Big Sisters and other youth programs are among his top priorities.

His leadership skills have been established in managing an alternative-energy and energy-efficiency program with Washington State University, coordinating community-volunteer efforts on the Sound Transit and Pierce Transit Boards, and working on the Pierce County Public Health Board.

He has also served as vice chair of the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency, and as Tacoma’s deputy mayor.

Jake has lived in Tacoma for more than 30 years. He has two children and two grandkids.
