Jake Harris net worth: Jake Harris is a reality TV star fisherman who has a net worth of $500 thousand dollars. Jake Harris is a cast member on the hit Discovery Channel docu-drama, "Deadliest Catch". His father, Phil Harris, was the first captain of the Cornelia May, and was featured on the show during its first five seasons. A pulmonary embolism forced him to remain onshore for much of Season 5, and he suffered a stroke on-camera during Season 6. He passed away soon after. His sons, Jake and Josh, have gone in very separate ways since his death. Both are working for separate boat crews, but while Josh is excelling and earning a positive reputation, Jake has become known for all-around laziness and drug use. Various crew members have suggested that he no longer work as a fisherman, and many people have advised Josh to stay away from his brother. Jake Harris continues to deny that he has a problem, and has earned the ire of many "Deadliest Catch" fans.
