Casting and character creation

The role of Jasper "Jax" Jacks was originated by German born, Australian native actor Ingo Rademacher who debuted in the role in January 31, 1996.[1][2] In April 2000, Rademacher announced his decision to not sign a new contract with the series, and would vacate the role of Jasper.[3] On his departure, Rademacher said in a statement, "I haven't really built up my resumé. I think [daytime] was a good move. And especially being on General Hospital, the best daytime show, I think. But there are other things I'd like to do." Following his departure, the actor signed onto the NBC primetime series, Titans.[4] In April 2001, it was rumored that Rademacher would make his way back to General Hospital, despite being interested in the role of "Colin" on the NBC Daytime soap opera Days of our Lives, a potential love interest of the character Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).[5] That month, further speculation lead to many to believe that Rademacher would return to his daytime home following the cancellation of Titans and his rumored deal with Days of our Lives failing to provide any truth.[6] It was later confirmed that Rademacher was to return to the series in June 2001.[7] He returned on-screen July 30, 2001.[8]

In September 2004, following being quoted as being "burned out", Rademacher was rumored to be making an exit from his daytime home once again.[9] When the rumors turned out to be false, the rumor mill remained to be quiet. In May 2011, it was announced that Rademacher had been fired from the series following a noticeable decline in Jasper's airtime on the series.[10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17] Rademacher last aired in July 2011, before returning in August in what was expected to be the first of many guest appearances on the series, proving his character to be alive.

In November 2011, it was announced by ABC announced that Rademacher would make another scheduled guest appearance on the series, this time lasting three weeks.[18][19][20][21][22][23][24] Rademacher returned on December 30, 2011 and left the series once again on January 23, 2012.

In August 2012, following the surprising return of Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roché), it was announced that Rademacher would once again make a return to the series in the role of Jasper Jacks.[25][26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33] Rademacher made his on-screen return on August 23, 2012.

Storyline

1990s

Jasper "Jax" Jacks arrived in Port Charles, New York at the behest of Lois Cerullo (Rena Sofer) to help her get her company back from Edward Quartermaine. Despite Lois' happy marriage to Ned Ashton (Wally Kurth), Jax pursues her romantically. To keep Jax occupied, Lois introduces him to her best friend Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil), who uses Jax to make her mobster ex-boyfriend Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) jealous. Despite her love for Sonny, Brenda develops feelings for Jax, and the two eventually wed on his private yacht. When the two decide to renew their vows, Sonny interrupts the ceremony by bringing in Jax's former wife, Miranda Jamison (Leslie Horan), who revealed her death had been faked to hide scars she suffered in the explosion. Jax ultimately decides to move on with Brenda, who has become engaged to Sonny. Brenda, who has been battling an addiction to pain killers, is left at the altar by Sonny in an attempt to protect her from the dangers of mafia life, and Jax helps her recover from her eventual breakdown. The two become engaged yet again, though Brenda appears to die when her mental mother drives her over a cliff.

2000s

Jax learns that his father and brother Jerry Jacks (Julian Stone) started the family empire with mafia money, and they lose all of their money. After winning money in Monte Carlo, he begins to rebuild his fortune and also meets fashion designer Chloe Morgan (Tava Smiley). Chloe is in danger of losing her design company, and must be happily married to retain the seed money her eccentric uncle left her. Originally planning to marry a now divorced Ned in Las Vegas, Chloe's aunt Gertrude objects and Jax marries his best friend Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) to help cover the ruse. Though Chloe eventually loses her company, she and Jax grow closer and eventually fall in love and Jax buys her company back for her. Chloe is severely injured when Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) runs her over in an attempt to kill Alexis. Chloe develops psychic visions tied to Helena, and Stefan Cassadine (Stephen Nichols) intends to use these to help destroy his devious mother Helena. Stefan shows Jax a woman who looks just like Brenda, and Jax leaves Port Charles in search of his former love.

While searching for Brenda, Jax meets Kristina Cassadine (Jaime Ray Newman) and he realizes that she is Alexis's sister. He reunites the sisters, though Chloe refuses his advances when she learns he left her to pursue Brenda. Stavros Cassadine (Robert Kelker-Kelly) murders Chloe, who has become involved with Stefan, leaving Jax heartbroken. Returning to corporate raiding, Jax teams up with Skye Chandler Quartermaine (Robin Christopher) and her brother AJ Quartermaine (Billy Warlock) to take over ELQ, their family company, and to destroy Sonny. Jax also goes into business with Carly Corinthos (Tamara Braun), Sonny's wife, opening a nightclub in an attempt to free her from the mafia lifestyle. Despite initially disliking Skye, Jax becomes attracted to her, and she in turn plays the damsel in distress to lure him to her. The two make love, and are both concerned when AJ becomes involved with Sonny's sister Courtney Matthews (Alicia Leigh Willis). The two briefly split, when Jax learns that Skye had been working with Edward behind his back, but they are able to overcome this obstacle and marry.

The night of his wedding to Skye, Jax is shocked to see a very much alive Brenda in his cottage. Brenda explains that she faked her death, fearing that she suffered from the same fatal mental illness as her mother and that she had been taken in by arms dealer Luis Alcazar (Ted King). When she attempts to leave Luis, he shoots Jax, leaving him paralyzed. Depressed over his condition, Jax pushes Skye away and pretends to be in love with Brenda still. Skye learns that Brenda is not dying, and when Jax discovers that she is keeping this information from Brenda, he ends their marriage. Overjoyed, he tells Brenda the truth, and the two become engaged again. Alcoholic Skye, begins drinking again and also starts an affair with Luis. When Luis is murdered, Skye implicates Brenda and mobster Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), forcing Brenda and Jason to marry so they cannot be forced to testify against each other. Initially found guilty, Brenda is cleared of the charges when it is revealed that Alexis killed Luis, who was responsible for the death of Kristina, in order to protect her newborn daughter. Once her marriage to Jason is annulled, Brenda and Jax prepare to wed, though Jax leaves her at the altar when he learns that she kissed Sonny the day of their wedding. Brenda leaves town, and Skye again pursues Jax. Unable to recapture their past love, Skye begs him to impregnate her, but Jax chooses to leave town again.

Jax returns to town in pursuit of a set of five cards called the Dead Man's Hand, allegedly held by Wild Bill Hickok the night he was killed. Jax's father had them for most of his life, and believed them to be responsible for his success. Upon losing them, his father lost the will to live, and as Jax searched he met a grifter named Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) who was also searching for the cards in Port Charles. Initially at odds, the two become attracted to each other while simultaneously sabotaging each other's quest for the cards. After they become lovers, Sam distracts Jax who has regained possession of the Dead Man's Hand, and Jax is unable to return the cards to his father in time to prevent his death. Jax blames her for his father's death, though he begins to suspect he is the father of Sam's unborn child. The relationship ends when Jax learns that his enemy Sonny is actually the father.

Jax begins to flirt with Sonny's sister Courtney, and the two make a $10 million dollar bet that she won't be able to resist his sexual advances. Courtney wins the bet, but the two make love and fall in love. Courtney and Jax marry, but learn that Courtney cannot conceive a child. The decide to use Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) as a surrogate, though Courtney regrets this as Jax begins neglecting her in favor of Elizabeth and their child. Courtney in turn begins a friendship with Nikolas Cassadine (Nikolas Cassadine) that blossoms into love. Courtney sleeps with Nikolas, and becomes pregnant, though Jax changes the paternity test to say that he is the father. Courtney gives birth to a son, but dies shortly afterwards. Carly (now portrayed by Laura Wright), Courtney's best friend, helps Jax raise his son, and the two begin dating. Carly discovers that Jax is not the father, but keeps quiet to protect the baby from the Cassadines. Carly's longtime nemesis, Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough), learns the truth and when she reveals it to Nikolas, Jax is forced to give him the baby who Nikolas names Spencer Cassadine.

Jax and Carly continue their relationship, and eventually become engaged. Their wedding is delayed several times, and Jax is forced to leave town to help his wayward brother Jerry (now portrayed by Sebastian Roché). When Sonny shoots mobster Lorenzo Alcazar (Ted King), Carly marries him to avoid testifying against him. After she and Sonny are held hostage at the Metro Court Hotel by the mysterious Mr. Craig, the duo have sex, which Jax learns about. Jax resolves to fight for Carly, and though initially torn, Carly chooses a life with Jax. Carly and Sonny divorce, and Jax and Carly finally marry with her sons' Michael (Dylan Cash) and Morgan Corinthos blessings. When they return from their honeymoon, Jax learns that Mr. Craig is actually his brother Jerry with plastic surgery. Jerry sends Jax out of town, where Jax is kidnapped by Jerry's former lover Irina. She rapes Jax twice, though he is able to escape and return to his life with Carly.

Jax begins a new business venture with fashion editor Kate Howard (Megan Ward), who Carly immediately dislikes. The two learn that Kate is actually Connie Falconeri, Sonny's high school girlfriend, and she begins dating Sonny. Young teen Michael, fearful of the violence that surrounds his family, purchases a gun and accidentally shoots Kate. He runs away, leaving Carly, Jax, and Sonny fearful that he has been kidnapped by Anthony Zacchara (Bruce Weitz), a mafia boss newly arrived in Port Charles. Adding to their stress, Carly and Jax learn that she is pregnant. Michael returns to town, but he and Carly are injured in an explosion caused by Diego Alcazar (Ignacio Serricchio) in retaliation for the deaths his family suffered. Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) rescues Carly, who is suffering from hypothermia. In the hospital, Anthony's daughter Claudia Zacchara (Sarah Joy Brown) threatens Carly and her family in an attempt to protect her brother Johnny Zacchara (Brandon Barash) from Sonny and his organization. The stress surrounding her family and her injuries suffered in the explosion cause Carly to lose her baby, though she and Jax vow to keep trying.

Claudia, teamed with Jerry, orders associate Ian Devlin to kill Sonny. Devlin accidentally shoots Michael, leaving the boy in a permanent coma. On the way to install Michael at a long term care facility, Carly seduces Sonny in order to successfully manipulate him into turning over parental rights to Michael and Morgan. Kate and Jax, feeling shut out of their partner's lives, share a kiss during a romantic business trip to New York. Kate begins manipulating Jax, who leaves Carly when Kate makes it appear that she is sabotaging their business. The two reunite but split again when Jax learns that she slept with Sonny. Jax and Kate almost sleep together, but Carly interrupts them. Though both still in love with each other, the two begin divorce proceedings and Carly decides to sell her stake in their hotel to Jax's rival Nikolas. Jax hires Kate's cousin Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero) to work there, and she convinces Carly not to sell her shares to Nikolas. Against the advice of their lawyers, Jax and Carly stop divorce proceedings and reconcile yet again. Sonny, who left the mob for a life with Kate, marries Claudia in order to take over her family's organization when Kate is shot again.

Carly decides to host a gala at General Hospital to raise money for research to help Michael and other children suffering brain injuries. Initially leaving Port Charles for a business meeting in Hong Kong, Jax returns to discover that Carly and several of their friends have been quarantined because of a biotoxin that has been released in the hospital. When a fire begins engulfing the hospital, Jax crashes his helicopter in a rescue attempt, leaving Carly to believe he is dead. Jax survives and convinces Alexis and Mac Scorpio (John J. York) to let him fly the police helicopter, and he is able to make several successful rescue flights, though Carly is not among those he saves. Carly is able to escape by one of the stairwells, and the two are reunited. They renew their wedding vows and begin to try and conceive another child.

Jerry fakes his death to keep himself safe from Claudia and the Zaccharas, and he also begins sending DVDs to the house she shares with Sonny discussing her role in Michael's shooting. Carly discovers that she is pregnant, though she does not inform Jax that the pregnancy is extremely high risk for her. Jax and Claudia's lover Ric learn the truth about Claudia's misdeeds, and Jax is stunned when Jerry is revealed to be alive and in Port Charles.

Michael (now portrayed by Drew Garrett) returns to Jax and Carly but the two are faced with a new problem - Michael's attitude towards his mother. Jax learns that eventually Michael will remember everything he heard in the coma - even his confession that Jerry and Jax were both involved in Michael's shooting. Jax asks Kristina Davis (Lexi Ainsworth), his former stepdaughter, to help him on how to deal with Michael.

After Sonny and Claudia returned from their trip, Sonny makes plans to honor his wife until he learns that Claudia planned the shooting. Claudia informs that both Olivia and Jax knew about it and kept it secret from both Carly and Sonny. Claudia then kidnaps a pregnant Carly and forces her into a car. Carly goes into labor and gives birth to her first daughter and Jax's first biological child-Josslyn Jacks. Sonny goes to Carly and Jax's house demanding his sons until their mother is back and Jax refuses to let the boys go. He has a reunion with his wife however, Carly kicks him out of her room. Later, Carly and Jax take the baby home, but Carly, outraged that Jax had known that Claudia and Jerry were behind Michael's shooting all along, throws him out of the house.

2010s

After Carly gives birth to Josslyn, Claudia attempts to kidnap the baby, but is bludgeoned to death by Michael. Sonny is accused and put on trial for Claudia's murder, and Jax, determined to put him away for good, brings Claire Walsh (Dahlia Salem) in to help; upon discovering that Jax had helped the police bust Sonny, she moves out of the house and files for divorce, taking Morgan and Josslyn with her. However, Claire resorts to ethically questionable tactics to ensure a conviction, going so far as to pull Morgan out of school under false pretenses without Carly and Jax's knowledge to question him, much to the fury of both. Eventually, Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) discovers that it was in fact Michael (now portrayed by Chad Duell) who did it and convinces him to confess. However, the judge, fed up with the courtroom antics, unfairly sentences Michael to five years in Pentonville to teach everyone in the courtroom a lesson. Like everyone else involved, Jax is left guilt-ridden by his role in the tragedy and states that, when it comes to protecting Michael, he's no better than Sonny.

Claire resolves to right the wrongs she has committed and recruits Jax to help her find out how to spring Michael from jail. Dante eventually convinces the judge to release Michael on the grounds that he live with Dante and have minimal contact with Sonny (though the latter rule is eventually lifted by Claire).

In spring 2011, Jax becomes convinced that Carly is an unfit mother due to her constant association with Jason and Sonny and decides to fight her for full custody of Josslyn, though Carly merely wants joint custody. To this end, he hires Alexis to help him, but Alexis knows that Jax is being unreasonable and repeatedly tries to convince him to compromise with Carly; recalling that her own attempts to keep Kristina safe from Sonny's world did nothing but convince Kristina that Sonny didn't love her, Alexis fears that Jax may make the same mistake. Despite Alexis' advice and good points, Jax flatly refuses to listen, and after several arguments, finally demands that Alexis actually start acting like his attorney and tell him how to beat Carly in court.

Jax later asks both Robin and Olivia to testify on his behalf, but both refuse. Jax and Carly later agree to a ceasefire to celebrate Michael's graduation, but things go awry when Jax arrives at the ceremony just in time to see Michael punch out a classmate who was harassing Kristina over her late abusive boyfriend, Kiefer Bauer (Christian Alexander).

Afterwards, Jax quickly resorts to underhanded tactics to improve the odds of winning custody of Josslyn, digging up dirt on Shawn Butler (Sean Blakemore), who had been hired by Jason as a bodyguard to Josslyn and Carly, and provoking him into attacking him in public, forcing Carly to fire him, and finally going so far as to issue subpoenas for Brenda, Michael, and Morgan to testify on his behalf.

In July 2011, Carly comes to Jax's office and finds him with Grace Yang, who has been appointed by the court as a mediator in their custody case. When Sonny comes in during a meeting with Carly and the mediator, Jax is convinced the court will side with him. Sonny threatens him to back off and agree to joint custody or he will pay. Sonny also suspects Jax paid off Grace to throw the case his way. At the court hearing, Grace tells the judge she believes Josslyn is better off with Jax than with Carly, and says she's a danger to Josslyn's life. Brenda later testifies and inadvertently lets it slip that she and Alec were just shot at the night before on Sonny's property, strengthening Jax's case.

Jax waits for the judge's ruling, refusing to back down from his case when Alexis and Brenda try to convince him to. Later, Grace shows up at his suite to discuss the case and serves him a drugged cup of coffee. When Jax realizes this, Grace locks herself in the bathroom and calls the police, while Jax bangs on the door, yelling.

Jax regains his senses at the police station, where he is handcuffed to a table. Detective Ronnie Dimestico tells him that in addition to assault, they found drugs in his room and he resisted arrest when the police came. Jax pleads his case, saying that Sonny set him up, but Ronnie tells him that the evidence points at him. Brenda later comes over and Jax tells her to somehow get Sonny to confess. While Jax is at the station, Michael shows up to pay a parking ticket, and Jax tells him to tell Carly to pay his bail to prove she wasn't involved. After he's released, he goes to Carly's place and threatens her, promising she'll lose Josslyn. Carly denies she was involved, but Jax doesn't buy it and leaves. The next day, the judge came to a decision, and Jax was devastated when Carly received sole custody of Josslyn.

Jax boards his plane with Brenda, who has left Sonny as a result of him framing Jax. She brings along her son, Alec Barrett. Jax drops them off in Rome, Italy and makes his way to Paris, France to recuperate after losing Josslyn. Jax eventually makes his way back to Port Charles and sneaks into Carly's home to take away Josslyn. On his way out, Shawn catches him. Jax manages to get past him, but his car breaks down on the way to the airport. He makes his way to Robin's place with Josslyn. After a meeting at Robin's home, Shawn convinces Jax to give Josslyn back to Carly. Later on, Sonny comes to Robin's house, intent on killing Jax because he blames him for Brenda leaving him. Just as he holds the gun up, Robin stops him and gets hurt in the process. Jax leaves so that he won't get arrested by the police.

At the airport, Jax is waiting for takeoff, but flies into the air without permission from air traffic control to avoid the police. As he starts flying, his plane starts to shut down, as he realizes that Sonny messed with his plane. Dante later reports that Jax's plane crashed into the harbor.

Skye finds Jax passed out at a warehouse amid a parachute. When he wakes up, he says that he barely made it out of the plane before it crashed. He asks Skye for help to get out of town. When Skye leaves to find him what he needs, Carly shows up, and Jax hides from her. He listens as she begs for Jax to be alive. Shawn later joins her, and they talk about Jax during the better times of his marriage to Carly. Jax is surprised when he hears Shawn say that Carly wants to cut Sonny out of her children's lives once and for all. Carly tells Shawn she now understands why Jax wanted to get custody of their daughter, and doesn't know how to tell Josslyn that her dad is never coming home. Shawn tells her to hold onto hope that he's still alive, and they leave. Skye returns with cash and some fresh clothes for Jax. With one last look, Jax, now confident that Josslyn will be safe in Carly's care, departs Port Charles. Before he leaves town again, he attempts to murder Sonny as revenge, and fails to do so. Following his murder attempt, he left town and presumably returned to Europe.

Jax returned to Port Charles once more in late August 2012, following a phone call from Carly over Josslyn's health scare, unknowingly brought on by Jax's scheming brother Jerry.
