I'm Jax Gardner, but [...] you might now be as DJ G. [...] I'm a professional producer, DJ. I've even been called a musical genius.

— Jax to Kit, "The First Day"

Jackson "Jax" Gardner is a student at Keaton School of the Arts. He is studying in the Music Program. He is the ex-boyfriend of Jenna and the current boyfriend of Bianca.



Jax is a self-proclaimed DJ and does work with music.

Keaton School of the Arts

Jax becomes part of the Music Program. During "The First Day" he recognizes Bianca from a show called Chase and Chance. Later, Jax is paired with Kit Dunn in Production class. Jax brags about his expertise to her and refuses her help despite not knowing how to complete the assignment. Still not having anything done when it is time to hand it in, he is willing to admit defeat when Kit hands it in for them.

In "Groups of Two" Jax was late to class, and received a warning. Miles was also late to class, but didn't get into any trouble, making Jax upset. Later, Jax was on his phone and Mr. Park told him to put it away, but Miles received a call and Mr. Park let him take it outside. Jax was upset and later looked at Miles' phone and read a text that read: "Your drugs are ready." Jax took this as something "illegal" and showed Mr. Park, who warned Jax to not get into Miles' business.



Jax can be arrogant, vain, and tends to brag about his musical talents, and has a difficult time admitting when he's wrong. He doesn't like to admit when he needs help, as show when he didn't let Kit help him with the music assignment. Jax is shown to also be quick to become indignant and willing to meddle in other people's business, as shown with Miles in "Groups of Two." Jax is very caring and helpful around Miles. His pride has shown to drive him to be willing to go to extremes such as getting his rivals expelled as shown with Miles and Kit prior to his friendships with the latter and former.

Physical Appearance

Jax has brown hair, brown eyes, and fair skin. He usually wears a pair of headphones and a jacket. He is quite thin.

Jax met Kit when she was his partner for an assignment in Production class. He bragged about his DJ experience and took over the assignment, refusing her help. When it was close to the end of class, Jax still hadn't figured out how to work the computer program, and Kit ended up turning in an assignment she herself had done. Jax was impressed, and when he saw her in the hallway, he admitted he was wrong and complimented her music.

In On Deck The two challenge each other to a D.J. battle. After stealing Kit's USB with all her samples and listening to them, he realizes that he needs to back out before "Kit makes a sample of people laughing at him in the quad." He doesn't end up backing out after Kit 'smack talked him'. When their having their D.J. battle, Jax notices Kit is using on of his idols DJ Diamondmind's track. Jax points it out and Kit gets expelled from Keaton. When Kit comes to clean out her stuff from her classes, she accidentally tells Jax that she is Diamondmind, making him the first person out of her family to know. Once Jax realizes that he got his idol suspended from school, he helps Kit get back in by pertending that he is Diamondmind and that Kit is his assentent to keep it a secret.[1]

At first Jax develops a rivalry with the former and dislikes him for Mr. Parks' "special treatment" of Miles, even going as far as attempting to have Miles expelled. After finding out about Miles' kidney disease Jax befriends him. Quickly, the pair become close friends. During In Their Shoes, Jax agrees to make a track with Miles. But, he accidentally spills that he always knew about Miles' kidney disorder. Miles is hurt when he finds out that Jax pitied him, but they make up by the end of the episode. During Plays Well With Others, Jax buys Miles a muffin and tells him that he has "(…)pretty eyes and cool guy hair." Though taken out of context, it is still a pivotal moment for many shippers of the two.

During Season 1B, their moments are seen less on screen. One notable moment is when Jax screams at Miles to get out, and they later make-up.

Jax has gotten Miles into trouble, like when they stole the cake and when Jax convinced Miles to lie to Park.

There are often arguments on what ship name is most suitable. The three most common are Jiles (sometimes also used to refer to Milie), Gardox, and Milax.
