If you not gonna race i think that Jake will fit you. I have a Jake the snake 2005 and is very satisfied with it. I've read somewhere (don't remember where) that the biggest difference between them is the weight that differs a lot. Jake can be a better choice for commuting, the snake has a race frame thats lighter and that's not always the best for daily use for many years. Jake have also 3 chainrings in the front, the snake have 2 and have gearing for cyclocross race.
