Jam is a man from the town of Hearthstone in rural Alethkar on Roshar. He is two years older than Kaladin.
Jam's father served as a soldier in Brightlord Amaram's army; he was well known to Lirin because he had operated multiple times on a lingering leg injury. When Kaladin was ten years old, he and Tien liked to watch Jam train in the quarterstaff with his father. Lirin doubted that Jam actually wanted to hang out with the younger boys.
Jam still lived in Hearthstone at the time of its evacuation to Urithiru on the Fourth Bridge in 1175. He moved to the tower and lived with the rest of the refugees on the sixth floor. When Raboniel and her forces invaded the tower, he found a spear somewhere and tried to resist them; he was the only refugee that was injured. Hesina presumably tended to his wounds.
