11 year old Jake never speaks. He is obsessed with numbers -- writing long strings of them in his ever-present notebooks -- and with discarded cell phones. Yet Jake has the ability to perceive the seemingly hidden patterns that connect every life on the planet. It is up to his father, Martin, to help connect with Jake and shape humanity’s destiny with him.


Jake has appeared in all the episodes of Touch so far.
