“J.J. has the most intense eyes I’ve ever seen and is too damn sexy for his own good. He’s perfected that quiet, brooding thing.” – Michelle, The Blake Legacy
Name: John Jacob Blake Jr.
Occupation: President, Blake Enterprises
Marital Status: Working all that out…
Where I Live: Twelve Horseshoes Ranch
Blake County, Texas
Sometimes you have to tear everything down and start over.
“JJ used to play pro ball too but got injured his third year on the team. After he accepted football wasn’t in his future, we became partners in a land development company.” – Seth, MVP
For three years I lived my dream as a quarterback before a knee injury took me out of the game for good. My wife Eden loved the limelight of being the star quarterback’s wife a little too much and my retirement put a strain on our marriage. My family warned me about her but I didn’t listen.
When I’m not running Blake Enterprises, I’m keeping track of my crazy brothers. I have to admit, they’ve all been doing some growing up lately. Seth is married with kids. Tate settled down. Channing is graduating law school. Now if I could just get Tyler to give up his obsession with racing cars, that would put a smile on my Momma’s face.
It’s time for the next chapter in my life. The boys keep telling me I need to have some fun and adventure in my life. Maybe they’re right.
I made brief appearances in MVP and The Blake Legacy. The boys and I had a great time chewing the fat on Tate’s porch in Texas Heat. I’ll be popping up in Love Notes and Football and my story begins in The Perfect Storm.
See you soon,
