Laura is his ex-wife, who in the first season becomes her precinct's captain, and in the second season becomes his partner after he demotes himself from the captain's position. They have a very good relationship and take equal partnership in raising their sons. In the second season, Jake is often seen trying to win back Laura's trust and rekindle their relationship.
