Jake is the illegitimate sone of a Broadway actress, Elizabeth Cutter, and an undisclosed father. He attended Cornell University on a baseball scholarship, and later pitched Double A ball for Duluth born injuring his shoulder. He has flown for the Army Air Corps (rank of lieutenant), flown the mail and done barnstorming in Pennsylvania, and done route exploration for Pan Am and TWA. He was injured when his Trimotor when down in Peru, and was pulled from the wreckage by his friend and mechanic, Corky, in 1933.
