J. Jonah Jameson was once in the Navy and had experience piloting water vehicles. He was also married and had a son named John Jameson. His wife was gunned down by a masked assailant, causing Jameson to deeply distrust anyone wearing a mask from that point. This was reflected by the fact that since the emergence of Spider-Man, Jameson maintained that the hero was a menace to society and needed to be brought to justice.
Jameson started work at the Daily Bugle as a reporter, where he became known as "Jigsaw Jameson". During his time as a reporter, he published Nick Fury's false obituary, having accidentally flipped the image so the eye patch was on the wrong side. He eventually became chief publisher, and founded the television station J3, based on his initials.
After Spider-Man apparently killed Doctor Curt Connors, Jameson had Professor Farley Stillwell turn Eddie Brock into the Scorpion. However, as the Scorpion was about to finish off Spider-Man, a guilty Margaret Connors came forward to reveal that it was not Spider-Man's intention to kill Curt and that it was an accident, so Jameson told Brock to stop. However, Brock became angry that he had been mutated for nothing and turned on Jameson, although Spider-Man stopped him.
Nick Fury called upon Jameson's help when the Chameleon was hired to kill two diplomats at a United Nations conference. Jameson was initially surprised that Fury was alive, having published his obituary. Fury instructed Jameson to investigate, who was given a pin that would summon S.H.I.E.L.D. agents should he gather important information. The Chameleon was apparently stopped and the conference started with Jameson in the front row.
