Jake Wrzesiński (born December 21, 1969 in Września, Poland) is a Polish-Canadian actor and musician who lives in Toronto. He is one of the current composers for Greeny Phatom.


Early YearsEdit

Jake was born in 1969 in Września, Poland. His mother, Ljubica Młynarczyk (neé Đorđević), was born in Belgrade, Serbia and moved to Poland at age 12, and his father, Mieczysław Młynarczyk, is a native of Oświęcim who came from a long line of millers. They immigrated to Canada when he was just 6 months old, settling in Toronto. Jake wrote of his childhood in his autobiography Haters Go Hang Yourselves:

"I grew up at Church and Wellesley, aka the Gaybourhood. All of the gays and lesbians were confused when my mom started to mutter in Serbian or Polish and my dad ranted in his native Polish while I stayed totally silent."

Jake speaks fluent Polish, which in his childhood resulted in local children spending days outside his door shouting "Solidarity!"


Later YearsEdit

Jake's first job was working at a company that imported banana ketchup from the Philippines, fixing boxes and testing out the sauce on various meats and foodstuffs. When asked about it by music humor site Am I Right in a interview posted on the site in 2013, Jake stated "More than once, I had to vomit into a toilet full of piss!"

Jake attended Chaminade College School and later Central Toronto Academy. While at CTA, he met Kristian Michaels, an American-Canadian trans woman from Vermont, and they became fast friends.

Jake joined the cast of The Jeff Jones Show through auditions in Toronto. He was given the part of Jack Jones, Jeff's deadpan snarker brother. Jack starting to like cartoons in Season 2 onward was based on requests from Jake.

Jake attended OCAD University, graduating in 1999.



Jake lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with his wife Anna and their sons Sven, Arnold, and Samuel, and their adopted daughters Mina, Jenny, and Kate. Mina and Jenny were adopted from China after Jake learned of the practice in that country of female children being abandoned because of their gender. Kate was adopted from Bulgaria and has Down syndrome.
