Born and raised in the heart of Titletown, USA, Jake grew up with a passion for his faith and for investing himself in the wellbeing of others. As a young adult, Jake developed a strong competitive drive as a cross-country skier and runner, competing in regional competitions and completing several Birkebeiner races.
After several years of falling out of shape and taking a break from competitive skiing, Jake became a member of CrossFit Green Bay, looking for an opportunity to regain his passion for fitness (and lose his muffin top). After a couple months, he was hooked. He noticed significant changes in his overall wellness, energy, and performance.
Having experienced a significant physical transformation from his training as well as changes in diet and lifestyle, Jake became increasingly excited about the opportunity to use CrossFit to help others. Jake firmly believes in helping people to experience health spiritually, mentally, and physically. He works full time as the Student Pastor at Life Bridge Christian Church, seeking to share the hope of Jesus Christ with students and families in the Howard-Suamico Community. In his work as a coach, Jake desires to mirror his work as a pastor, glorifying God by giving people the tools they need to thrive and walking alongside them through their physical and spiritual growth.
Jake is also passionate about his role as a husband and father. He currently lives in Howard with his wife Shawna and his three children; Rylie, Judah, and Waverly.
