As a Florida State University undergraduate, Jake participated in directed studies in neurosciences. He was a month away from starting a degree program in physical therapy at Florida A&M University when his world abruptly changed at 21 years old.  Neurology and physical therapy took on a far more personal meaning, After nearly losing his life to his own Traumatic Brain Injury, his recovery was strenuous, leaving him with short-term amnesia for a year following the injury.  He was fortunate to have recovered from his brain injury and shows no visible signs of lingering effects. Today he is leading the charge in finding solutions to reduce the negative impact of concussions.
