He was one of the original residents of Kent Ave.
Jake is known to parade his irrational love of films like Pineapple Express around while he rolls one million cigarettes, saying things like "That movie is brilliant, I don't care what you say." When pressed to justify his love of the movie, he often cites something totally greewo like how many TVs James Franco's character has in his apartment. It is this seeming unawareness of how freakfuck he is that makes Tishler so compelling. (See Couch-fingers.)
There was also this one time that William Welles accidentally tore the packaging on Tishler's latest Netflix and Jake totally flipped out, saying, "Who doesn't know how to open a Netflix!?"
He currently resides in California.
