'Deadliest Catch': Captain Phil Harris' grieving son Jake struggles without him

The untimely death of Captain Phil Harris in February 2010 rocked the entire "Deadliest Catch" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on Discovery) community, but none more so than his sons Josh and Jake.

After the Harris boys were financially unable to put their father’s boat in the water they both signed on with other crews. Josh joined "Time Bandit," and Jake joined "Northwestern" with his dad's old friend Captain Sig Hansen.

Jake was finding the loss particularly hard, and he kept his dad's ashes with him in an urn. “I carry him around everywhere," he said. "I miss him.”

However, despite struggling with the work onboard "Northwestern" Jake persevered, and Hansen said approvingly: "I'm sure Phil would be real proud of him."

"Deadliest Catch" continues on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery.
