He tells People, “It will always be home for me. It’s where all my coastal-living ways and beach ideas come from because that’s how I grew up. I literally grew up on the beach every day. I just like my feet in the sand.”

Jake goes on to say Vero Beach is his favorite spot in the whole world followed by Grand Cay in the Bahamas. He often goes fishing and diving down there with his friends.
