Jason is the name of a Greek hero in Greek mythology who was the leader of the Argonauts who went in search of the Golden Fleece. He succeeded with the help of Medea, who went against her own father, and though he married her Jason eventually left her for another woman, the princess Creusa of Corinth (who was also known as Glauce) . Angered by his unfaithfulness, Medea sends Creusa a cursed wedding dress that burns her to death when she puts it on, and kills the sons she had with Jason before fleeing to Athens.

Some nicknames are: Jace/Jase, Jae/Jay, and Jayce
