Useful information on Jerry Jacks
* Was once engaged to Bobbie Spencer.
After Jerry nearly died in a car crash many years ago, he and his true love, Bobbie Spencer, planned to marry in 1999, amidst his promises that his illegal activities were behind him. Jason and Sonny were able to learn that he was laundering money for crime lord Moreno. Jax frantically tried to save his brother from arrest. Roy DiLucca, in trying to bring down Sonny, gave the FBI a series of account numbers that led them straight to Jerry. He was arrested in the middle of his wedding to Bobbie. Jerry asked Bobbie to run away with him, but she refused. Jax got him out on bail and Sonny managed to help him skip town after a tearful good-bye to Jax on the docks. Bobbie missed the chance to say goodbye, showing up moments after his departure, but he called her later. Jerry last made his presence known by sending Bobbie a Christmas gift shortly after going on the run.
Jerry didn't resurface in Port Charles until 2007, only he had a different appearance because he had plastic surgery as a disguise. He went under the alias of James Craig and was the mastermind behind The Metro Court hostage crisis. He held several people hostage and even shot Robin Scorpio in the process. After a long stand-off, he and his posse were able to escape and the town picked up the pieces. Later, he appeared at Nikolas Cassadine's mansion and demanded that his presence be kept a secret while he continued his nefarious business. Nikolas had no choice but to allow it because Jerry had set up a plan so that Emily Quartermaine (Nikolas's fiancee) would be framed for money laundering in the event of his death. Eventually, Jerry was able to re-enter Port Charles society and convince everyone that he was indeed Jerry Jacks and not James Craig. The PCPD was skeptical, but there wasn't enough evidence other than the fact that he looked like the villian.
Jerry was able to become somewhat mainstream by late 2007 and even dated the District Attorney Alexis Davis. Jax enjoyed having his brother back but never trusted that the guy wasn't in some kind of trouble. Sure enough, Jerry was doing business with the Russian mob and ended up taking Sam McCall hostage on a Russian cargo ship in an effort to slip out of town while everyone thought he had died in an explosion.
Soon after his so-called death, Claudia Zacchara received DVD's with Jerry threatening her that he had hidden proof of her part in the shooting of young Michael Corinthos in her husband Sonny Corinthos' house. She wanted her marriage to work and knew that Sonny would kill her if he found out that a year prior she had arranged a hit that ended up putting his son in a coma. Jerry returned to Port Charles in April of 2009 to torment her some more. Claudia planted an explosion to kill Jerry, but he only suffered minor injuries and took off.
Believing Michael was responsible for her miscarriage, Claudia called Jerry to go after him. She tried to call it off when she realized she was wrong, but Jerry was already on the hunt. He ended up kidnapping both Michael and Kristina. During this time he got into another battle with Jason and left town once again after shooting him.
Jerry returned to Port Charles once again to collect the remains of The Balkan's son and to seek revenge on Brenda.

Obrecht has Robin tied up in another location and passes her off to Jerry Jacks.
By the dock, Sonny and Jax have lost Jerry and are getting sicker. Jax leaves on foot while Sonny is joined by Shawn. They hop on a boat and get up next to the vessel Alexis is in.
Jerry leads Alexis onto a boat. They are riding off to their future so she should get comfy. She is sure Jax and Sonny will stop at nothing to rescue her but Jerry ties her up and tells her about the bomb. He will deactivate it using a remote once they are safely away. He drops into a coughing fit and she asks if he is sick. More than you know he tells her, but is anticipating a recovery soon. He leaves and Sonny and Shawn come in moments later. She assumes they diffused the bomb but they know nothing about it. Alexis panics - the bomb is still live! Shawn leaves with Alexis and Sonny stays, but soon falls to the ground from his illness.
Jerry is untying the boat when Jax walks up and shows him the boat keys he has found. Jerry explains he is dying and has to leave. When The Balkan shot him the bullet was laced with radiation that is eating him up. He had some people find a cure but he still owes $88 million. Jax throws the keys out into the water and Jerry rages that he made a serious mistake. He points a gun at Jax and pulls out the remote to set off the bomb. Out of nowhere Sonny shoots Jerry, who fires back and hits a gasoline can. Another shot lights a puddle of gas on fire.
