He lost his memory in 1995
On December 29, 1995, Jason was involved in a car accident with his half-brother, A.J. Quartermaine. A.J. was intoxicated when he got behind the wheel of a vehicle and crashed into a tree, not far from the Quartermaine property. Jason, who tried to prevent A.J. from driving, was ejected from the vehicle, smacked his head on a large boulder and fell unconscious.
A.J. and Jason’s cousin, Ned Ashton, found the crash site and took responsibility for the crash so that A.J. wouldn’t go to prison. When Jason awoke from his coma, he had suffered severe brain damage, with no memory of his past, drastic changes in his personality and no feelings for anyone in his family, except his grandmother, Lila and his sister, Emily. He changed his last name from Quartermaine to Morgan.
