After he matriculated, he took accounting classes, but eventually decided not to enroll at college.
Jake is somewhat secretive when it comes to his personal matters, and becomes even more secretive when asked about his parents – he is said to be very respectful of their privacy, which is why he hasn’t shared any details regarding his mother and father. He can’t be heard talking about any siblings either, which is why he is considered to be an only child

Love life and relationships
