Early Life

J.Ds childhood shaped him into the person he became in the musical. Though we don't know a whole lot of aspects from his childhood, we know his mothers death was a crucial point.


J.Ds signature features we've noted from the people who have played him professionally, he is usually portrayed by a caucasian male with either blonde or brown hair. Clothing wise, J.D wears a black trench coat, black pants, a black shirt and black shoes. The black represents his quite dark personality.


His personality is explored a lot more in the musical, compared to the movie. In the musical, you can see he isn't as much as a psychopath, but more of a damaged, f*cked up kid with some sociopathic tendencies.


Heather Chandler

She was murdered from the bleach in her drink. People still think it was a suicide, though only him, Veronica and the audience TRULY know what happened that morning.

Kurt Kelly and Ram Sweeney

Both were fatally shot by J.D, but was staged as a suicide. This was revenge after saying rumours about Veronica, regarding the 'big sword fight in her mouth'.

Westerburg High Bombing & Suicide

J.D had a plan to bomb the school, though Veronica felt differently about this plan. So much so that she goes down to the boiler room stop him-- J.D getting shot in the process with his own gun. Veronica takes the bomb, goes to the football field, attempting to blow her self up, but to no avail, she doesn't. J.D follows her whilst having his gun wound, and takes the bomb. He tells her that she should go on with life, and that he is at the point that he's so damaged, the point to where he couldn't get help. his last words to Veronica are "Our love is god..".
