Jake Barnes was the first person to be named to the list of “Legends of Pro Rodeo” by the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in which he was inducted in 1997. Jake married his wife Toni in 1989, and they have five children. He has made the WNFR a whopping 27 times since joining the PRCA in 1980.
Jake has had a couple of devastating injuries that he overcame with amazing determination as giving up has never been an option for him. He and his wife Toni believe that things happen for a reason and Jake’s tests and trials have been an inspiration for many people.
