Jake, played by Dan Hicks, is a character in the film Evil Dead II.

Jake and Bobby Joe guide Annie Knowby and Ed Getley along an alternate trail to the cabin when the bridge is out on the main road. The four of them find an embattled Ash Williams at the cabin. Mistakenly concluding that Ash murdered the Knowbys, they lock him in the cabin's cellar.

The four new arrivals listen to a recording of Raymond Knowby detailing that his wife Henrietta was possessed by the Kandarian Demon, and that he killed her and buried her in the cellar. Henrietta, now a deadite, possesses Ed; Ash dismembers him with an axe.

Bobby Joe tries to escape but is attacked by the demon trees and dragged to her death. Annie translates two of the Necronomicon's pages before Jake turns on them and throws the pages into the cellar, forcing them at gunpoint to go look for Bobby Joe. Ash becomes possessed once again and incapacitates Jake.

Annie retreats to the cabin and accidentally stabs Jake (mistaking him for the possessed Ash) and drags him to the cellar door, where he is killed by Henrietta.
