Jason's father is African American and Native American, and his mother is German Jewish. He met his fiancée, optician Kandi Antillon (who is half-Costa Rican and half-Italian), in 1999, and mostly retired from modeling after that, choosing to concentrate on his acting. Back in the early 1990s, he dated model Tyra Banks for a year.
Jason has also written a book of poetry entitled Balancing the Limbo.
Jason was the first contract player to be cut from the Passions cast. After Frank Lomax uncovered Theresa as Ethan's stalker, it was necessary to get the character out of town to keep him from interfering in the Ethan/Theresa storyline.
