Jacob Tolliver's entertainment roots began at an early age dazzling his teachers and classmates at Portsmouth West High School in the deepest most Southern region of Appalachian Ohio.

In 2013 at the age of 19, Jake was selected to be the understudy for the role of Jerry Lee Lewis, "The Killer", in the Las Vegas production of "Million Dollar Quartet."
