The pilot reported that he was high on the approach for landing and partially focused on the tower controllerís warning about heavy wake turbulence from landing jet traffic on the parallel runway. The airplane touched down about 1,800 ft or longer down the runway and†subsequently ran off the end. The controller†instructed him to turn around and exit the runway at taxiway Hotel; however, in confusion, the pilot turned toward the main terminal.
