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.
Jameson hired Mac Gargan to track Spider-Man and had Dr. Farley Stillwell turn Gargan into the Scorpion. Mac was unable to return to normal and eventually turned on Jameson, kidnapping him. Scorpion took Jameson to the Oscorp nuclear reactor, where he planned to use radiation to turn himself back into the man he was, without thinking of the consequences. Despite Spider-Man's efforts to stop him, Scorpion released radiation on the whole city, destroying it and the surrounding area, as well as contaminating most of North America.
