Jake was born and raised in Washington state; now married to Brooke and father of son Jackson. Heaps developed a passion for football, particularly the quarterback position, at a very early age. He went on to have a prolific high school career at Skyline High School playing for legendary coaches Steve Gervais and Mat Taylor. He went on to play at the collegiate level for BYU, Kansas, and Miami (FL). The past two years he has spent in the NFL for the New York Jets (2015) and the Seattle Seahawks (2016) respectively.

He has learned the game from the likes of Darrell Bevell, Carl Smith, Chan Gailey, Charlie Weis, James Coley, Robert Anae and Ron Powlus. He has also benefitted from private quarterback training philosophies from Terry Shea, Trent Dilfer, George Whitfield and Taylor Barton.
Heaps has worked with youth quarterbacks, top high-school quarterback prospects, and collegiate quarterbacks in the Northwest region. He is a member of the coveted Elite 11 coaching staff responsible for The Opening at Nike headquarters.
