    DR. DANIEL JONAS'S HISTORY

    Dr. Daniel Jonas comes to Salem March 4 2008. Victor Kiriakis calls upon his expertise in dealing with Bo Brady's illness (pancreatic failure).

    With Bo's daughter, Chelsea, as the donor, Dr. Daniel performed a risky pancreatic transplant that saved Bo's life. Soon, Daniel realized that Chelsea developed a crush on him, but he tried to stay away from her. When pursued and questioned by Chelsea, Daniel finally revealed that he feared getting close to a patient because he might lose them, just as he lost his wife when she died from cancer. Chelsea made him see that that wouldn't happen with them and Daniel finally gave in to his feelings for Chelsea. Daniel faced scrutiny from Bo and Victor, especially about the age difference between he and Chelsea, but they dated anyway. Their relationship ended when Chelsea found out that Daniel and Kate had slept together before they started dating. Chelsea couldn't forgive Daniel and though he tried to stay away from Kate, he couldn't deny his attraction to her.

    When he saw that Kate had a bad cough, he suggested that she have tests done, but Kate insisted that it was just a cough. Daniel sought Chelsea for help to convince Kate to see a doctor and Kate finally agreed. She had tests done, including a lung biopsy, which revealed that she had lung cancer. When the truth about their relationship first came out, Kate's sons, Philip and Lucas, insisted that Kate get a different doctor. Later they all agreed to do the best thing for Kate, even if that meant Daniel treating her.

    Dr. Daniel Jonas treated Kate for her diagnosis of lung cancer. He was caught between his feelings for her and his fears of the past repeating itself, but his feelings for Kate were lessened once he got to know Chloe Lane Black, and fell in love with her. They had a fling, but Chloe made a deal with God that she'd marry Lucas if he'd spare his life during an explosion, so she has done so but is not happy. She is being poisoned by Kate Roberts, who knows about the affair. Kate's setting Daniel up to take a fall. Kate was able to set Daniel up but Stefano stepped in and cleaned up Kate's mess. Kate was still in love with Daniel and hurt by him so tried to hurt him in return. Daniel ended up marrying Chloe, but the union didn't last when she had sex with Philip Kiriakis and became impregnated. She pawned off the kid as Daniel's and once he found out, he dumped her. Daniel eventually met Jennifer Horton and they started dating. Jack returned to town and the two started dating Jennifer in order to help Jenn decide which man she wants to be with. He warned her that he's in love and won't wait forever. Recently, Daniel learned that Maggie Horton's his biological mother. He's hurt that his parents didn't tell him before they both passed on.

    Daniel agreed to give Maggie away at her wedding to Victor Kiriakis. Meanwhile, Daniel began to experience tremors in his hands and feared that he had Myasthenia Gravis like Maggie. Around Christmas, Daniel realized how happy Jack and Jennifer were together and didn’t want to break up the family. He bowed out gracefully and a broken-hearted Jennifer asked him if they can remain friends. Later, Daniel got his test results back: he has Intention Tremors which may have been caused by a stroke that Daniel might have had while he was asleep. Devastated that he wouldn’t be able to be a surgeon any more, he decided to leave town to surf and think.

    Daniel returned to Salem at the end of February 2012 and seems to be in better spirits. He told Jenn they could be friends and is moving on. Jack Devereaux died and he was dating Nicole Walker and helped her to keep the truth from EJ who was the child's daddy. The child died before she was born and EJ earned the truth. He decided not to prosecute. Nicole and Daniel grew apart when Daniel's feelings for Jenn resurfaced and Jenn found a new option for surgery to cures his tremors. He had surgery and went to the Horton Cabin to think, when it didn't look as though surgery worked. Jenn and Nicole followed and Jenn had appendicitis. Daniel performed surgery and saved her life and she professed her love for him. He and Jenn started to date again and Nicole moved on. When Chloe showed up in Salem to tell him Parker was really his son, things became tense. Chloe was trying to do what she could and even used Parker, to attempt to break him and Jenn up.
