OHIO’s 63 season will be Jake’s 12th year with the team. He started out as a student volunteer helping out with the penalty box and goal judging, moving on to become the voice that welcomes the Bobcat fans and players to Bird Ice Arena each game day. His focus is on building the excitement and energy of the tremendous fan base while honoring the traditions that decades of winning have brought to the rafters of our historic arena. Jake also assists with the game-day planning and operations at the rink. He has worked as the PA Announcer for CSCHL Tournaments, the Division 2 TSCHL Tournament, international hockey competitions in Cleveland, Ohio as well as the ACHA Men’s Division 1 Tournament. During the fall he assists OHIO’s NCAA D1 Field Hockey program as a PA Announcer.
A native of Northeast Ohio, Jake moved to Athens in 2003 and immediately became a Bobcat Hockey fan. He works at Ohio University for the University Libraries, serves on Classified Senate, and is a member of the Facilities Planning Advisory Committee.
