He moved with his family to a farm near Raymond as a young boy, growing up on the family farm. Jake was baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith and was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Raymond for many years, before joining the Church of St. Mary in Willmar. He married Mary Lou Condon on June 12, 1950, in Raymond and together they farmed north of Raymond for many years. After retiring from farming, Jake helped his cousins in Thein Moving Company, moving houses for several years before retiring again at age 62. Jake and Mary Lou left the farm and moved to Willmar in the fall of 1990.
