Jackson Davis is the actor who plays Jonas in the Lonelygirl15 web series. He was born in Gloversville, New York but grew up in Lancaster, PA. He went to Manheim Township schools for most of his childhood.
After graduating from high school, Davis worked a series of odd jobs, including as a concrete construction worker, a factory worker, a bartender, a gas station clerk, a delivery boy for a grocery store, and a short stint in security before enlisting in the United States Navy. Unhappy in the Navy, Davis eventually moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. "It was really that experience that helped me decide to become an actor," he said. "The Navy made me realize that I never wanted to spend any more time doing something I didn't really want to do." 
Before appearing on the show, Jackson had never heard of Lonelygirl15 but got involved by simply answering a casting notice. He almost walked away from the interview because there was a really long wait, but ended up sticking it out and was cast for the part of Jonas.
Jackson had a small part in "CSI:NY" on Feb. 14, 2007 (see clip). He's also appeared in a music video for singer Raul Midon (see clip) and had parts on "Wrigleyville," "In Tune," another web based series, Ten, and Skye. Jackson says that if he weren't acting, he would like to be a pilot.
For a short while, it was speculated through MySpace comments that his name had been changed from Franco to Jackson. However Jackson cleared this up himself, when he wrote on his MySpace profile "Just to clear this up... My name is not now, nor has it ever been Franco."
