My name is Jake Martinez. I was born and raised in Ventura, California. I am currently a junior here at Warner Pacific, majoring in Digital Media.  I come from a very family oriented background with my mom’s side being Italian and my dad’s side being Mexican. Being a part of the soccer program here has really helped my transition from leaving my family in California to making a whole new family with my new teammates. The Warner Pacific soccer program really reminded me of how much I love soccer and how much this sport means to me. With this campus population being so small, you really get a hands on teaching style and I love that.  It’s going to be my senior year next fall and I’ve already made friends here that will be in my wedding (whenever that time does come).  I plan to work at Universal Studios in Los Angeles and work on Movie and TV productions. I’m forever great full to be a part of this University and very appreciative of all the opportunities soccer has gave me so far!
