...A compression release engine brake, frequently called a Jake brake or Jacobs brake, is an engine braking mechanism installed on some diesel engines. When activated, it opens exhaust valves in the cylinders after the compression cycle, releasing the compressed air trapped in the cylinders, and slowing the vehicle.
Although Jake brake properly refers to the Jacobs brand of engine brakes, the term has become a genericized trademark and is often used to refer to engine brakes or compression release engine brakes in general, especially on large vehicles or heavy equipment.

Yes, as your quote says it is used on heavy duty diesel engines like on semi trucks and such. To put it simply it is like a separate head that opens the exhaust valves to create a vacuum that slows the downward movement of the piston and therefore slow down the RPM of the engine. The are a lot more complex and expensive than an exhaust brake which is what most pick up trucks and diesel RV's run. An exhaust brake is kind of like a throttle body put in the exhaust tube. It has a butterfly that closes to reduce the exhaust flow (essentially creating more restriction) which uses compression to slow down the RPM of the engine. Overall they both have the same idea of slowing down the RPM of the engine but a true jake brake works far better than an exhaust brake ever will. And like I states above, they are far more expensive.
