Jake enjoys hanging out with friends and being outdoors, playing a chess, and all water activities. Coming to Colorado, he has taken on snowboarding and therefore falling down as two of his out of school hobbies. Aside from his hobbies, Jake is involved with the Adventure Leadership Community (ALC), which involves intertwining teaching freshman leadership traits while all sharing the common passion for outdoors.
