Initially Jake was raised by Tina, breaking her surrogacy agreement after becoming attached to the child, and named in memory of her late father Joe McIntyre. Although, soon afterwards Tina was convinced to return the child to Gary and Izzy - who in turn renamed him. Nearly a year after his birth Tina was murdered by Rob Donovan in June 2014, and Jake was later predominantly raised by Izzy when she split from Gary later that year. When Izzy was sent to prison for drug possession, Gary began to have a larger role in his son's upbringing and raised him, alongside partners Sarah Platt and Maria Connor - and their sons Harry Platt and Liam Connor Jr., under shared custody with Izzy.
- Jake was born onscreen in May 2013 but was not played by an actor until a few weeks later due to his premature birth. He was played by Harley & Layton Phoenix from June 2013 to October 2015, followed by Seth & Theo Wild from February 2016 to March 2018. Since August 2018, he has been played by Bobby Bradshaw.
