To begin with, the boy was raised in Medford, Oregon by his parents Greg Richter, who served in US Navy, and Sandy Richter who worked as an actress. When the boy was three years old, the family settled in Hawaii, where he was spotted by a Japanese casting agency. Thus, James was filmed for various television productions, and when the boy was nine, the family moved to Los Angeles.

Concerning his professional career, Jason debuted in the main role in the family drama film “Free Willy” (1993), which received positive reviews from critics as well as grossing $153.6 million at the box office. For this role, Richter subsequently won the Young Artist Award as the Best Leading Young Actor in a Feature Film, and he was nominated for two MTV Movie Awards in the categories of the Best Kiss and the Best Breakthrough Performance. Afterwards, he was in the main cast of the film “Cops and Robbersons” (1994), and in the same year, he portrayed the main protagonist Bastian Balthazar Bux in the fantasy film “The Never Ending Story III: Escape from Fantasia” directed by Peter MacDonald. Then, the sequel “Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home” (1995) was released, but it received negative reviews from critics, as did the next one entitled “Free Willy 3: The Rescue” (1997). Regardless, they added somewhat to his net worth.

Later, the actor landed episodic roles in the television series including “The Client” (1996), “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” (1997) and “Rugrats” (1997). More, he was the leading actor in the Canadian science fiction film “Laserhawk” in 1997, and in the same year created the character of Big Bully in “The Setting Sun”, and then Wade in “Ricochet River” (1998).

From 1998 to 2008, he took an hiatus from acting, instead playing the bass in several bands including Blue Root and Fermata. In 2009, he not only appeared in the film “Tekken”, but also served as an assistant director. Even though the film was criticized by experts, it grossed $967.3 million at the box office, which significantly increased the net worth of Jason James. In addition to this, the actor was seen in episodes of the television series “Bones” (2009) and “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour” (2011). Jason James has also starred in the television film “Life’s a Pitch” (2014). In 2015, he appeared in two feature films “Inhumane” and “Vicous”, for the latter also serving as a producer. Recently, Richter landed roles in the films “High and Outside” (2016) and “3 Solitude” (2017).

Finally, in the personal life of the actor, he is probably single – there is no public information of romantic relationships.
