Jamie was born to Tad Martin and Brooke English, but when their relationship failed, he spent his time between houses, growing up friends with Amanda Dillon and JR Chandler. Tad's marriage to JR's mother made Jamie and JR half-brothers.
Secure in his mother's relationship with Edmund Grey, Jamie was disgusted when the two parted and she drifted to Adam Chandler. Jamie's drunken outburst at a costume party about his mother's sexual escapade, cost him his relationship with his very religious girlfriend, Joni. A brief fling with his brother's ex-girlfriend, sent JR fleeing town in anger. Jamie decided to steer clear and began pursuing older women for a time. His encounter with a hooker was interrupted by his mother who sent the young woman packing.
The night of 'The Face of Fusion' contest announcement, Jamie met up with an inebriated blond, with whom he later had sex. The very next night, at a dinner at the Chandler mansion, JR introduced his new bride, Babe. Jamie's jaw dropped when he realized he had slept with his brother's wife.
Turmoil over feelings for Babe drove a crevice between the two young men, and Babe turned to Jamie when JR tried to drug her. Pregnant with JR's child, Babe gave birth at the same time as Bianca Chandler. The two women were stranded in a cabin and Babe's ex-husband, Paul, stole her child and left her believing that Bianca's child was her own. Poor Bianca mourned the lost of her child and fell into a deep depression, only to later learn the truth when Jamie and Babe discovered the deception and found Babe's real son, Little Adam living in Llanview with her ex's sister. Jamie and Babe kidnapped the little boy and went on the lam.
Jamie's aunt, Phoebe Wallingford, passed away, leaving her fortune to him, but a stipulation declared it null and void if Babe was part of his life. Babe arranged to have Jamie find her in bed with Josh so that he would leave her.
The kidnapping case went to trial and Krystal took the blame, going to prison so that Babe could reunite with JR for the sake of seeing her son. Krystal was finally freed and came home to marry Adam Chandler. Jamie turned his attention to gold-digging, Amanda Dillon, but when he realized her plot to trick him into marriage, he ditched her.
Julia Santos, an older and more sophisticated nurse, soon caught his attention. Despite her reservations about their age difference, their brief separation ended and they have pledged their love for one another.
The tension of having his father and step-mother search for their missing daughter, Kate, has brought stress into Jamie's life. When Dixie went on trial for the murder of Dr. Greg Madden, Jamie conspired with his father, Tad, to help set her free. He knows his father's secret and he has pledged to keep it.
Now Jamie has moved in with Julia and is helping her and their friends console Jonathan Lavery after having lost his sister, Erin. Julia's best friends planned to come for Christmas, but were involved in a serious car accident. Jamie and Julie found them and got help, but not in time - the husband passed away from his injuries and the mother is struggling to stay alive. Their little daughter escaped unscathed, and is in Julia and Jamie's care.
Julia thought she was pregnant, which scared Jamie because he wasn't ready to have kids. The two broke up soon after Julia found out the pregnancy was just a scare. She left with Kathy to visit her family in California. At loose ends, Jamie began hanging out with Babe and decided to go back to Med. School. A few weeks later he was contacted by his cousin, Jake Martin, about going to work at an AIDS clinic in Africa. Jamie decided to help out Jake and left Pine Valley.
