In the past, he used to be involved in criminal activities alongside his friends, but he wanted to leave all this behind, which is why he moved to Las Vegas in the first place.

Upon his arrival in Vegas, Jason meets Frank Veliano, who is the most powerful mobster in Vegas and owns almost every business in the city, save for the press. Veliano wants him to fight in a ring and take a dive in Round 4, because he wants Jason to be part of his system. To intimidate him, he shoots a guy who had betrayed him right in front of Jason's eyes.
However, in Round 3, before Jason is supposed to take his dive, Pietro Holston, his opponent, (who later turns out to be bribed by Vera Montello) goes down, and Jason has to escape from Frank Veliano's henchmen.

Jason then has to do a couple of jobs for Veliano and Benny as well as their ally, mayoral candidate Reverend Winston Goodman. After Benny captures Karen in order to blackmail Vera Montello, Jason meets up with Vera and E-Man in order to get Karen back from Veliano. They've had some preparation, such as breaking into the military base to steal some recon devices. After some time, they free Karen and escape, but there are too many mobsters following them, so Vera Montello sacrifices herself so that the others can escape.

An extension to the game is about Jason and E-Man investigating E-Man's delivery boys who suddenly disappear, as a result of aliens.
Another extension to the game is the Devil. Jason meets the Devil at Fowl Casino, who reveals that Jason's brother, who had been killed by a shotgun wound, was shot the in the same way a year before his death. Jason 'sold his soul' to the devil for his brother to live, only to die "in the same exact goddamn way". In an attempt to not have his soul to be taken, he works with the devil to reclaim souls at her demand.
- With the introduction of Jason, developer Gameloft returned to the idea where the protagonist was new in the town where the game is set (after Rio de Janeiro being Angel's hometown in the previous game).
- Like the other protagonists in the series, Jason acts ironically and makes comments regarding the situation. When he drives into pedestrians, he can say stuff like:
- Sorry! (He means "sorry" ironically)
- Jaywalking kills!
- I didn't see you there!
-My bad. (Sarcastically)
-Totally my fault. (Sarcastically)
-Watch where are you walikng!
-Sorry about that
-OOOO! (when he drives into a lot of pedestrians at a fast car speed)
