After his mom died, he and his dad renovated their lake cabin in her honor.A hard worker with a high interest in girls, he enjoys watching sports, hanging with friends, fishing, and camping.A comical joker, yet a guy who doesn’t play games and means what he says one hundred percent all the time.He is known for smoking marijuana regularly and is allowed to do so, so long as he remain level headed and responsible. In his senior year, Jake decided to take an interest in environmentalism, doing recycling experiments and even starting Degrassi's Green Space along with his high school sweetheart Katie Matlin.Despite a rough patch when he saw him as a failure, Jake became close with his father, Glen Martin, after working on architecture and renovations with him and earning his respect.He is best friends with Mo Mashkour and Eli Goldsworthy.
During dinner, Clare suggests that she and Jake go to Above the Dot, so that she could introduce him to all of her friends, as he is a new student at Degrassi. He has a conversation with Adam and Eli, while Clare stares at them.When Clare begins to have a scene, he tries to calm her down, but then takes her outside.He yells at Clare when they walk back to her house, telling her that she needs the closure, not Eli, and to move on.Jake kisses her, and the next day, Clare tells Alli that he is a good kisser.
In Cry Me A River (1), Jake is seen setting up an Orienteering booth at the Clubs Fair when Alli says that Clare should join (referring to the Jake and Clare kiss in Love Game).
Clare then exclaims that she is not interested and that she and Jake were a one time thing.
