Jake Dunlap was a football player for the Toronto Argonauts of the Interprovincial Rugby Football Union from 1949 to 1950, when he played 22 regular season and 3 playoff games.

In all he played pro football for 11 seasons, and was selected as an All-Star in 1953.[1]

Dunlap later settled in his hometown, Ottawa, Ontario, and practiced law with his firm Dunlap Dunlap & McInenly. He died on October 17, 2010, in hospital in Ottawa, Ontario. He was predeceased by his wife, Dena, and is survived by his son John and his daughter Joanne. His brother Frank Dunlap was both a Canadian Football League and National Hockey League player.
