Character[]

Jake is Michael's best friend in Jaws: The Revenge. He is the shark's third victim.

Portrayal[]

After planting a shock device in the shark's mouth, while aboard the Neptune's Folly boat mast, the shark springs up on its tail at Jake and mauls him. But after the shark blows up after Ellen stabs it by driving the Neptune's Folly's sharp boat mast in it, Jake is found mortal wounded, but much alive.

Trivia[]

  • In the novel, Jake's last name is McCoy, but his last name is never mentioned in the film.
  • In an alternate ending or theatrical version, Jake survives the attack. Jake, still seriously injured, declares to Michael that from now on, they're going to study sea snails.
