    Jax came to Port Charles as a corporate raider to aid Lois Ashton in getting her company away from Edward Quartermaine. When Lois introduced him to Brenda Barrett, Jax was intrigued but she only saw him as a way to make Sonny jealous. Jax played along until she finally realized there was no chance of reconciliation for her and Sonny, and she accepted Jax's marriage proposal. Before they could wed, she went back to Sonny.

    Sonny left Brenda at the altar and Jax was there with a strong shoulder. Again he proposed, and what should have been a happily-ever-after, turned into disaster when Brenda's mentally ill mother drove her car off a cliff, killing herself and her daughter.

    Jax discovered that the company his father founded was built with mob money. His empire crashed and he was left with nothing. Within a short time, he won a large sum of money in Monte Carlo and started to rebuild.

    He has had a long string of love interests, including Chloe Morgan, Alexis Davis, whom he wed for a while, Skye Quartermaine, and Brenda Barrett again, when she emerged from the dead. He has fought against the Cassadines, crossed Sonny Corinthos, and tangled with his wife Carly, and has been betrayed on one expensive occasion when Sam McCall, another love interest, gave Luke the infamous 'Dead Man�s Hand' (the five cards held by Wild Bill Hickok during his last game), so that he could open a casino. Still, Jax's fortune grew.

    He and Carly's shared ownership of a plush hotel brought them together as more than just business partners. After a stormy start, the two got married. It was a rocky marriage from the start because Jax couldn't accept Carly's constant involvement in Sonny and Jason's business and lives in general. In 2007, he had to leave town to go help his brother Jerry and Carly saw that as a betrayal. Carly eventually came to realize that she loved and needed Jax more than she needed to be involved in Sonny's life, so she tried to commit herself completely to Jax. He was out of town again when she needed him, however in 2008 when Michael was shot. He rusehd back to Port Charles as soon as he could and helped her to grieve for her comatose son. She turned to Sonny and slept with him after delivering their son to a permanent-care hospital. Jax couldn't stand another lie and left her. While separated, he slept with his (Crimson Magazine) business partner, Kate Howard. By 2009, he was ready to admit that his love for Carly was stronger than anything and they renewed their vows and commitment to one another.

    Jax and Carly had a daughter, but when Carly found out he was assisting the cops' investigation of Sonny, she left him. After Michael was sent to jail for killing Claudia, Carly decided Morgan should stay as far away from Sonny as possible and asked Jax to officially adopt him even though they were still getting a divorce.

    Skye came back to town and asked Jax to help her find Alcazar's hidden money. While helping her, he used his ex to try and make Carly jealous. Carly and Jax reunited for a bit, but their relationship fell apart when another of Jax's exes, Brenda, returned to town. A custody battle ensued over the kids, but it took a backseat when Josslyn became seriously sick.

    After Josslyn bounced back, Jax resumed his custody fight for his daughter. Things got ugly when Jax bribed the mediator to side with him in front of the judge. Sonny found out and bribed the mediator to set Jax up to make it look like he attacked her.

    Friday, May 08 2015: GH Recap: It's A Boy!

    In the garage at the Metro Court, Duke and Carlos struggle over the gun, which goes off. Fifteen minutes later Jake comes across the gun on the ground and a splatter of blood. In her room, Anna and Sloane argue over her future with Duke and their plans to run off together. She asks why he cares and he says maybe he will miss her. Anna wishes him luck with her old job and gets ready to leave, but is stopped by a phone call. On the stage in the now empty ballroom, Maxie and Nathan dance and kiss. Spinelli and Ellie went back to Maxie’s place, so they decide to go to Nathan’s place. Outside of the ballroom, Olivia goes into labor and Patrick says she’s going to have to deliver the baby here. Julian ends up stressing Olivia out and she tells him to leave. After much arguing Julian agrees to leave, but vows to be a part of the baby’s life. Alexis and Julian wait in the other room listening to Olivia scream as she gives birth. Julian doesn’t think this is fair, so Alexis tells him to think about it as a throwback to the old days when men had to wait in the waiting room. Olivia gives birth to a baby boy, but she soon realizes the baby isn’t crying and asks what is wrong. Julian rushes in and he also asks Patrick what is wrong with the baby. Back in the garage, Nathan and Maxie walk in as is Jake looking at the gun and blood. A loud gunshot sound goes off. Jake grabs the gun, while Nathan draws his, and they end up facing one another. Jake quickly puts his hands in the air and says he will cooperate. Nathan cuffs Jake and calls in for backup while Maxie tries to get answers from him. Jake says the gun isn’t his and he didn’t even fire it. He explains that he just arrived and found the scene, heard a noise, grabbed the gun and moved to a secure position. Maxie admits that she and Nathan heard the noise too. Later the cops arrive and Nathan fills them in on what he knows so far. Nathan has Jake brought in for questioning.

Brenda wants Carly to worry about her own pathetic life and says she wasn’t at Sonny’s last night as she responds to a knock on the door. Carly walks in telling Jax he looks good and claims she’s there to check on their accommodations. Brenda says the only thing they need from her is her signature on the divorce papers. Carly tells Jax she’s bringing the divorce papers and that Jax should bring her a check for $1M. Jax says she owes him but Carly corrects him saying she heard Brenda lying as she opened the door. She quotes Brenda as saying to Sonny, "What if we tried again?" She leaves and Brenda tries to get her digs in about Carly when Jax stops her and asks if she saw Sonny. She admits she did but is silent when Jax asks if she tried to get back with Sonny. The letter comes up and Jax tells her to say it. She nods yes when he asks again if she asked to get back with Sonny. He claims this is a mistake and she’s mad that this is what Carly wants. Brenda says they shouldn’t have come and wants to leave.
