Jake grew up in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. He attended Robert Morris University where he was a collegiate athlete and studied Business. His introduction to the fashion industry began at Express when he was in high school and quickly advanced from there. When he moved to Chicago for college, he joined a small team at Porsche Design as a Luxury Sales Consultant. After selling high end luxury goods for a year, Jake missed the creativity in designing and styling menswear. That is when he discovered Suitsupply. He hit the ground running at Suitsupply and quickly became a top Sales Professional in the world. Exceeding expectations, Jake took on the responsibility of a Training Expert, where he shared his knowledge and passion with both employees and clients.
Jake has always valued the importance of one’s presence and style, which he often relates back to a story his grandfather told his father: “Whether you have a million dollars in your pocket or a penny, the second you put on a well tailored suit, people start to treat you differently.” This iconic statement is what Jake desires for all his Daniel George clients to experience.
Whether it’s the most important day of their lives, or a casual Tuesday, Jake loves being a part of making their special day seamless.
When Jake is not designing custom clothes, he is either busy being a beach bum, eating plants (for protein), working out, or serving at City Church Chicago.
