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.

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.
