He was a good man, my Jakey. We was always sweet on one another. I miss him every day... every moment. They turned me into a monster, Arthur. But my memories of him... they still pure.

Jake Adler is a minor character and a stranger featured in Red Dead Online. He is also mentioned in Red Dead Redemption 2.



Jake married a woman named Sadie on September 7th, 1896. The two lived on a ranch, northeast of the abandoned site of Colter in Ambarino. The couple shared the work on the ranch evenly, and their marriage was stable. Sadie regarded him as the best man she ever met.

In May 1899, the couple's ranch was attacked by members of the notorious O'Driscoll Boys. Jake was murdered by a member of O'Driscolls during the assault and his corpse was thrown into a wagon close to the couple's residence, while Sadie hid in the cellar to avoid a similar fate.

Three days after his death, Jake's corpse was found by Micah Bell when he, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang's leader, Dutch van der Linde, came to the Adler Ranch in search of aid and supplies during the snowstorm. The trio then attacked, killed the O'Driscolls and rescued Sadie, while Micah was later told to properly bury Jake's body, although he most likely didn't since no grave can be found upon revisiting the post-destroyed ranch.

Jake's death had a massive impact on the broken Sadie, who was taken in by the Van der Linde gang. After a period of mourning, she became an active member of the gang and ultimately avenged Jake by sabotaging the O'Driscolls' attempt to save their leader Colm from hanging, and by murdering the remaining gang members at Hanging Dog Ranch - including the “fat man with a beard” who killed Jake.

  • "Adler" is the German translation for "Eagle", suggesting that Jake Adler may have German heritage. More specifically, Jake may have been, or had heritage of, a German Jew, as the surname in question was particularly common among Ashkenazi Jews.
