Jake grew up in northern New Jersey, where he played baseball nearly year-round growing up, and is the oldest of 3. He attended undergrad at James Madison University in Virginia, where he studied Economics and Political Science. Following graduation, he joined the company in the New York Metro Branch in January of 2015, where he was introduced to then District Manager Anthony D’Angelo.
Anthony and Jake quickly developed a strong professional and personal relationship, and Jake began helping Anthony service his personal book of clients and helping his new hires with case design and learning back office operations. Over time, they formalized the processes and systems they used to educate new potential clients and service existing clients, and that helped propel Anthony up the company's Management Leadership Award (MLA) rankings, culminating in back-to-back #1 national rankings in 2017 and 2018.
Following Anthony’s promotion to Branch Manager of the new Southern California Branch in January 2019, Jake followed him out west in April 2019. His work in SoCal focuses on three areas: He is the Director of Training at the Branch level, a Co-Director of the SoCal CRM Program, and is working towards founding and administering a standalone Case Design department.
When he is not working, Jake enjoys watching sports and standup comedy, and exploring his new surroundings in Los Angeles. He currently has no pets but dreams of adopting a Samoyed or Shina Ibu puppy.
