jakeJake spent his time growing up fishing and tubing on the Hiwassee River and the creek behind his house. His natural attraction, interaction, and appreciation of rivers and water started early on. In 2009, he began working on the Ocoee River as a Raft Guide and discovered his true passion for whitewater. Rafting and kayaking have given him the opportunity to travel to many beautiful and amazing places around the world, but the Ocoee River has always been his home. In 2019, he partnered up with Jordan Mikle and started Ace Ocoee Adventures. He can’t wait to show you why he is so passionate about the rivers and the region. ACE= Always Chasing Experiences!
