Jahn is the son of Tom and Barbara and has one sister, Erica. Away from soccer, Jahn likes to enjoy the outdoors with activities such as hiking and exploring the wilderness. He is a big reader and likes topics such as business, finance and sports psychology, listing books such as Speak and Grow Rich and The Little Book That Still Beats The Market among his favorites. At Stanford, he studied Management Science and Engineering with a minor in German. If he were not a professional soccer player, he would like to pursue a career in mobile application design or real estate investing. He grew up as an Arsenal fan and looked up to Thierry Henry, which is why he chose the number 14 upon joining San Jose. His first MLS goal was in his second game against the Red Bulls with Henry on the field, a memory that Jahn lists as his favorite memory in the sport. If he could take a vacation anywhere in the world, he would choose Bora Bora.
