Jake was introduced to cross-country skiing by his parents in their Minneapolis backyard at age 3, but it was while training with coach Piotr Bednarski's Go!Training (now Loppet Nordic Racing) summer club that he became obsessed with ski training. At St. Olaf College Jake competed in cross-country running, Nordic skiing, and track, helping the Oles win the NCAA Championship in cross-country his junior season. After graduating in 2015, Jake joined the Northern Michigan University ski team as a graduate student and finished his NCAA career with a top-5 finish at US Nationals and as an NCAA All-American. After two years with the US Biathlon development program, Jake joined the Craftsbury GRP Biathlon team in 2018 and lives and trains in Craftsbury, Vermont. Jake has two brothers. His brother Luke is also a biathlete with the Craftsbury Green Racing Project.
