  1. So terribly sad to learn about Jake's family. He has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the Huntington's gene and everyone with the gene develops this fatal disease. I found an old article saying that he doesn't want to be tested until he turns 35 (the age symptoms usually start to show) or he gets married. His brother originally said the same thing, but has since been tested and found he has the gene.

    So sad.

  2. Wow, I had no idea. It's really sad. So much respect for him.
