Growing up, Jason dealt with the loss of his mother in a car accident he was present to. He went home to a father who blamed her death on Jason and abused him endlessly, cutting into him with blades, shoving him down the stairs, locking him away with no food or water for days, giving him only what he needed to live. Finally, when he had the chance, Jason murdered his father by slitting his throat with a blade he made himself out of a shard of glass and duck tape to protect his hands. After this, he was on the run, finding himself in the marines after whipping his record clean with resources unknown. He served in the military for 4 years. During his service, Jason suffered a 556 round through the left eye socket, barely grazing his brain, causing him to forget most of his life, besides the abuse and destruction his dad caused him as a child and the insane number of kills he obtained during his life in the military. After seeing a specialist in Chernarus hospitals with expert surgeons that performed the reconstruction of the left of his face, he walked outside to a world now riddled with chaos and fear from a infectious outbreak causing the deaths of many, which now gave Jason a playground of fun.
