Jude was born into a poor family, his father leaving before he was born, and his mother being there only in body as her mind was lost to the drugs in her system. Jude's only saving grace was school, he excelled and studied like his life depended on it, because it did. Jude was constantly in the top 5 of his class, getting straight A grades and reading about more interesting topics on the side, like Psychology. Jude hit his stride in High School, where he met his father-figure, Mr. Jameson. Mr. Jameson was the history teacher for Jude's school. Mr. Jameson helped drive Jude home from school almost daily, he then taught him how to drive, then when his mom was admitted to the psych hospital, let him move in and officially adopted Jude and when Jude turned 18 he took his adoptive father's last name. Mr. Jameson loved Jude like a son, putting him through college, getting his Doctorate in Comparative Psychology from the University of Southern California. Jude finally didn't have a challenge, that's why he joined WHO. WHO challenged him everyday and his first big assignment was Chernarus.
