Jacob "Jake" Chernoff was a colonist on Pern. He worked in communications.
Soon after arriving on Pern, Jake was put in charge of a group of children cataloging life forms on the planet. Sorka Hanrahan was part of the group. Unlike Chung, the other member, Jake listened to Sorka's contributions.
He stayed on duty with Ongola during Nabhi Nabol's doomed shuttle mission.
Personality and traits
Jake was a big help to Ongola. He was able to keep official information secret when necessary, and he didn't want to cause a panic.
