|Portrayed By||Marty Rackham|
Jake Jarmel, played by Marty Rackham, is an author Elaine dated for a period. He dislikes using exclamation points in "The Sniffing Accountant", but he put one after his parting words: “I’M LEAVING!” He breaks up with Elaine yet again after she bought Jujyfruits immediately after hearing he was in a car accident ("The Opposite"). Again, he put an exclamation point after his parting words: “GOOD NIGHT!” Jake bought his glasses in Malaysia so that no one else would have a pair like them ("The Scofflaw"). He started a fight with Mr. Lippman when he noticed that Lippman had the same "unique" frames as he did.
