Jason was chosen by Zordon to wield the Tyrannosaurus Power Coin to become the Red Ranger, the leader of the Power Rangers team. He is a valiant athletic young man and dedicated martial artist. He shares his martial arts knowledge with his students at Angel Grove Karate school. Jason feels uncertain about sharing his position as karate instructor with Tommy as his Sensei suggests. It is revealed that when Jason was young, he was a bully like Bulk and Skull, one time even going so far as to break a bow and arrow made by a child much younger than him. Fortunately, Jason vowed to change his ways and was determined to become a better person.
Jason is very conflicted about Tommy's presence, wanting to give him the benefit of the doubt and trust Zordon's decision to include him but alarming signs consistently surface, causing tension between Jason and Tommy. As tensions rise, the coming of the Black Dragon leads to the loss of the core fives powers when Billy and his Power Coin are abducted. The Zords are let loose by Rita over the planet, so Tommy and the unmorphed Jason travel to the moon in the Dragonzord in an unsuccessful rescue attempt. In a last desperate effort to stop the Zord's rampage, Tommy uses his power coin to re-power Jason and the others as Green Rangers - Jason complete with Dragon Shield. When Trini reclaims Billy's Power Coin and Zord, and by extension their original colors, Jason maintains Tommy's Dragon Shield in the battle against Rita's forces in the alternate future.
During Zordon's absence after the Lord Drakkon arc, Jason puts immense pressure on himself to step up and lead his team. This pressure causes him to sometimes fall asleep in the Command Center after obsessively listening to hours of news reports for any trouble and scanning the Moon for any signs of activity from Rita or her monsters. While his team shows concern for Jason being so hard on himself, Jason simply shrugs it off and does his best to lead them even at the risk of his own health.
After Tommy's death at the hands of Lord Drakkon, Jason was given the Green Power Coin, giving him access to the Dragon Shield, Dragon Dagger, and the Dragonzord. He later gave the Green Coin to Kimberly so she could lead the Megazord contingent while he commanded the ground troops.
In a potential future that was separated by the Morphin Grid into its own pocket universe following the premature death of Tommy Oliver at the hands of Lord Drakkon, Jason, after leaving his old team, joined the Zeo Rangers as the Gold Zeo Ranger, fighting alongside Tommy who was now the Red Ranger. When the time came for him to leave Ranger duty again, Jason was presented with his old Power Morpher and Power Coin by the Rangers in the Power Chamber. Zordon used his powers to cosmetically restore the Morpher and Power Coin to its original appearance before the destruction of the Thunderzords, though Jason was warned that to attempt to use it would be extremely dangerous. Before taking his leave, Jason shared a candid talk with his old friend Tommy. Little did Jason know, however, this "Tommy" was actually Lord Drakkon, who had abducted the real Tommy before killing his counterpart after making off with Adam's Zeonizer.
After the events of Shattered Grid, Jason leaves the Power Rangers, turning over leadership of the team to Tommy and his duties as the Red Ranger to Rocky DeSantos, ostensibly to join the World Teen Peace Conference in Switzerland alongside Zack and Trini. However, that is merely a cover story so that he, Zack, and Trini could head out into space under the direction of the Blue Morphin Emmissary, who bestowed upon the three humans (along with their new alien ally Kiya) the powers of the Omega Rangers. Jason, described by the Blue Emissary as "dauntless and resourceful", was named the Red Omega Ranger.
This is Jason's default Ranger form as given to him by Zordon through the Power Coin.
Due to the properties of a dimension, Jason and Trini were sucked into affecting his connection to the Morphin Grid, Jason's powers and weapons swapped with Trini's to become the Yellow Ranger, yet he retains his original Power Coin.
