Trying to pinpoint it, I found:

the term jake in the American vernacular is defined as: adj. Slang; Suitable or satisfactory; fine; Everything's jake with me. The word entered the vocabulary in the early 20th century.

And...."an old phrase meaning 'everything is cool.'"

I had hoped for something a lot more specific.
