Jake Hernandez (ジェイク・ヘルナンデス, Jeiku Herunandesu) is one of the antagonists in Time Crisis 3.
Jake has shoulder length black hair and brown eyes.
He wears a collared green vest that is opened around his chest, khaki pants folded in military style with a brown belt that has a silver buckle around his waist and black combat boots. He also wears brown gloves. As for equipment, the left pant leg houses a case box while the right pant leg houses sheaths containing knives.
Jake Hernandez was originally a member of the Lukano Liberation Army, being Daniel Winston's second-in-command. However, Jake was selfish and greedy, so he betrayed the group to Giorgio Zott in return for a large payment. Upon hearing that Alicia Winston had managed to escape, he set out to capture her too so he could collect the bounty on her.
In an Astigos Island town, Jake finds Alicia and tells her that he was the only one who managed to escape. While she was distracted, he pulled a gun on her and revealed his true affiliations, wanting to capture her for even more money. However, he was unaware of her combat capabilities and had to flee after a short battle.
At the Zagorian military facility, Jake realized that the V.S.S.E. would defeat the Zagorias Federation Army and managed to persuade several soldiers to separate a missile warhead and load it into a VTOL so he could sell it for the highest bidder. As he made his way to the VTOL, he accidentally ran into his former Lukano comrades. Alicia pursued Jake into the aircraft hangar where he and his men attempted to stop her but failed. With the VTOL taking too much damage, he armed the warhead and threatened to explode it, but Alicia managed to pull a well-timed headshot, destroying the detonator and killing Jake. Subsequently, the VTOL he was on crashed down the cliff and exploded, further confirmed his death.

|“||I'm on my way! Did you get the warhead? [Zagorian soldier: Yes, sir. Missile separation is complete. We're currently moving them into the cargo.] (After seeing the Zagorias soldiers battaling against the Lukano Liberation Army soldiiers) Heh. Keep it up, guys. Once I get my money, I'm outta here.||„|
