He's a proud father of three amazing kids (2 girls, 1 boy) and a devoted husband to the most wonderful wife in the world.  

During his career, he spent time working in politics and government (and even peddling drywall screws?!!) before joining the team at FeedBurner in 2005.  In 2007, FeedBurner was acquired by Google and Jake spent more than six years working there in the Global Communications and Public Affairs group.
