Jake was born in Westlake, Ohio as the son of a realtor and a housewife. According to his older brother Logan, Jake is of Welsh, Scottish, Irish, English, and German-Jewish ancestry.

Jake actually began his career in September 2013, posting videos on Vine. He’s been active from 2013 to present, going from site to site and job to job. Thanks to his Vine fame, he landed a role in the Disney Channel comedy series Bizaardvark from the 1st and 2nd seasons.
