Jaxon Bryce Pierce is a main character in both Glee: The Next Generation and it's spin-off, Glee: The Next Generation presents The NYADA Years. He is the main focus of both series and during his tie at McKinley, he was the male lead of New Directions as well as Glee Club Co-Captain. Jaxon is the cousin of former New Directions member Brittany S. Pierce. He is one of the original "core six" along with Honey Berry, Kevin Rhodes, Bella James, Miles Larson, and Nicole Martin. He made his debut in the first episode, For Your Entertainment. Jaxon was also a member of the McKinley Titans football team, as their halfback.
He's openly gay and in Two of Hearts, he began dating James Holland. They briefly broke up in The Power of Love, however they reconciled in the very next episode. They again broke up in Season 2 and got back together in Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now. They were engaged in Gold Forever and got married in The Wedding.
Jaxon was created by series writer and creator JamesonOTP. He is portrayed by Max Thieriot.
Jaxon was on the football team at McKinley and had been one of the most popular students since his freshman year. Jaxon hung around with Miles Larson, John Weiner, Declan Porterhouse, and Kevin Rhodes prior to Season 1. Jaxon has been shown to have disagreed with Miles' bullying ways pre-New Directions, but they have stuck together as they have been best friends since pre-school. Miles is likely to have been the first person whom Jaxon told that he was gay to, and Miles has been very accepting, going as far as to say that it meant more girls for him because he didn't have to compete with Jaxon, who was already really popular amongst the girls at McKinley. During his 7th grade year in Junior High, Jaxon had a brief relationship with Lana Addison before either realized, or admitted, they were both gay. This however ended when Lana left middle school to attend Thurston High. Jaxon, Miles, and Kevin all met in preschool and been friends since. John came along later in high school and became close friends with the others.
In For Your Entertainment, Jaxon is first seen walking down the hall when he stumbles across the flyer for Glee Club. He decides to audition for Glee Club, but can't convince his best friend Declan to do so. Jaxon shows up for his audition and is extremely nervous. Backstage he calls his cousin, Brittany Pierce, who convinces him that he can do this and that he should sing his go-to song, For Your Entertainment. Jaxon gets glammed up Adam Lambert style and performs for Will and friends, who accept him into New Directions. Later, it is revealed that Jaxon plays for the McKinley Titans and is their star halfback. Jaxon is introduced to Kevin Rhodes, who he vaguely knows, and John Weiner. He is already friendly with Miles Larson, as the two are close friends. He also takes notice of James Holland, a transfer student from Carmel, whom he sees walking through the parking lot. When Glee Club is tasked with coming up with a perfect number to get more people to try out, it is Jaxon who suggests The Nicest Kids in Town.
Jaxon is first seen in Proud as Miles and Bella walk into the auditorium to watch auditions and sit beside him. He speaks to Bella, calling her Bells, and bumps knuckles with Miles. Jaxon reveals that Coach Sylvester has been pressuring him for an answer whether or not he will be joining the Cheerios. Miles reminds Jaxon that it will be hard to play football and also cheer for the team on the sidelines at the same time. Jaxon realizes Miles is right and decides he will break the news to Sue in the morning that he won't be joining. When Rose Mitchell auditions, Jaxon notices Kevin's discomfort and asks what's wrong. Kevin tells him that he and Rose used to date, to which Jaxon replies "awkward." As Kevin gets up and leaves, Jaxon tries to go after him but Bella urges him not to, saying she knows Kevin and he needs his alone time. Jaxon is enthralled by Evan's performance, but when Evan states that he's openly bisexual and it was dedicated to a certain guy, his wink indicating that that guy is Jaxon, Jaxon seems surprised. When Miles makes a joke about Breezy, Jaxon laughs, telling him that it was mean. As Kevin watches Miles' tryout for QB, Jaxon tells Kevin that they are both good, but Miles lets his anger get in the way sometimes and that Kevin is gonna get the position. When Kevin voices his concerns over his looks, Jaxon reassures him. Later, in the locker room, a fight breaks out between Kevin and Miles and Jaxon is forced to break it up. Jaxon goes to Sue's office first thing the next morning to tell her that he won't be joining the Cheerios. On the way there, Jaxon runs into Declan and tries to talk him into joining Glee Club but Declan declines, saying that he can't dance or sing. This information is later proven false and is likely just Declan being modest. When Jaxon breaks the news that he's not joining Cheerios to Sue, she realizes that her plan has failed since Glee Club now has its star and will not likely be derailed. Sue then goes into a rage and starts screaming and throwing things, telling Jaxon that he has made an enemy. While running from Sue's office, Jaxon sees James and plans to "accidentally" bump into him so he can get to know him better. Jaxon bumps into James and the two grab their books, making small talk. Jaxon asks if he can walk James to homeroon and James asks if that means that Jaxon likes him. Jaxon gets nervous, stammering and saying he doesn't know. Jaxon is last seen with New Directions, singing in Proud.
In Battle of the Sexes, Jaxon doesn't attend the auditions as he is said to be helping Coach Beiste with football practice, along with Kevin and Miles. During the pairing off for the Battle of the Sexes, Jaxon gets chosen as the boys' team leader. Jaxon gives each boy a job and decides to call his cousin, Brittany, for help. Jaxon loves the song that the other boys pick and decides that they'll do it. Later, while practicing the jumps in the dance routine, Jaxon flinches and misses his jump. After a pep-talk from Brittany and Blaine, Jaxon tries the jump again and makes it. Jaxon watches as James out his glasses back on and walks down the hall. Jaxon follows behind him, singing Cooler Than Me to himself because he feels James is too cool for him. Azimio interupts the song by throwing a slushie in Jaxon's face. James comes to Jaxon's aid, chasing off Azimio and taking Jaxon to the bathroom to help him clean up. Jaxon lets on that he thinks James is cute and James seems to feel the same about Jaxon. Jaxon impresses during the boys' performance of You Get What You Give, especially impressing James at the episode's end.
During Two of Hearts, James convinces Jaxon to cut class and come down with him to The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion. James admits his feelings for Jaxon and sings Crazy For You. After the song, James leans in and kisses Jaxon, surprising Jaxon. Will catches them cutting class and isn't too pleased. Will says they're lucky because he'll cover for them but not to do anything like this again. Jaxon arrives the next day in full glam gear to perform his song for 80's week. He calls James up to sing backing vocals and they perform You Spin Me Round (Like a Record). India picks up on the sexual tension between Jaxon and James's chemistry and calls them out. Bella approaches Jaxon and James as they walk into the auditorium the next day and asks if what's going around the whole school is true. When James and Jaxon don't know what she's talking about she tells them that the rumor is that the two of them are dating. Jaxon gets defensive because he desn't want his business being spread around school and when India takes the blame proudly, Jaxon blows up at her. Evan jumps in and insults James for being a former member of Vocal Adrenaline and for stealing his man because Evan has a major crush/borderline obsession with Jaxon. Jaxon performs in We Built This City and is the center of Evan's attention when Evan, Lucas, and John then perform The Goonies 'R' Good Enough. The way Evan looks at Jaxon and James and behaves puts a condescending spin on the lyrics, making Jaxon feel insulted. Later, James surprises Jaxon, asking him if he will come over to his house that afternoon. Jaxon arrives at James' house and is amazed by James' house. Up in James' bedroom, Jaxon sings I Think We're Alone Now to express his feelings on trying to get James alone this entire time. James suggests he and Jaxon take the next step, implying they have sex, but Jaxon is reluctant. After considering things, they decide they should wait as its much too soon. Jaxon instead suggests they let the only magic they make be a duet. Jaxon and James perform Two of Hearts together. The next day at school, James and Jaxon hold hands as they walk down the hallway and are approached by Azimio, who brandishes two slushies, one pink and one red. He says that he thought Valentine's Day should come a bit early for the lovebirds and proceeds to throw them in the faces of Jaxon and James.
In Invitationals, Jaxon is first seen in Glee Club when India walks in singing Popular and he also seems offended. When Miles runs out of Glee Club, trying to hide the fact that he's crying, Jaxon confronts Miles in the hall, saying that he knows he's lying about the costume fitting he had to leave for. Miles tells Jaxon that it still hurts too much to sing with Bella and that he could never sing with her again. Jaxon tells MIles not to give up because his and Bella's voices fits together perfectly. Miles tells Jaxon to go to Invitationals and show the show choir spies they have something to be afraid of. At Invitationals, Jaxon is greeted by Santana and Brittany, who tell him that his parents and Declan are waiting for him. Jaxon goes to meet them and they reveal that they are adopting Declan, which makes Jaxon happy. Jaxon and Declan share a hug and Declan wishes him luck. Onstage, Jaxon has a solo in Right Now (Taste the Victory). The next day after Invitationals, Jaxon tells Will that New Directions has put together a number to show him they have the confidence needed going into Sectionals and to meet them down in the auditorium. After Hallie overhears people talking about her and what Chastity spilled to India, Jaxon steps in to defend Hallie and stop a fight, but Evan rushes to India's defense. When Jaxon tells Evan he's gone too far, Evan tells Jaxon he's made a major enemy. Hallie collapses into Jaxon's arms, crying and Jaxon holds her. As the episode ends, Jaxon sings co-lead with James and Miles on Surefire Winners.

Jaxon follows James back to Aldy's where James want to apologize one last time, on his own, for his sudden departure from Aldy's crew. When a gang member pulls a knife on James and tries to attack him due to a turf war between his gang and Aldy's crew, Jaxon jumps to James' defense. Jaxon gets stabbed in the forearm and Aldy has to save Jaxon, making a makeshift tourniquet to keep Jaxon from bleeding out to much. Jaxon ends up in the ER, having to stay overnight.

At the beginning of Electric Feel, Jaxon and Lana stare perplexed at Jaxon's iPhone, not sure of what to say about about how Lynsay texted Jaxon and told him she loved him. Lana tells Jaxon that it's his fault for eating lunch with Lynsay because she's blown his good deed out of proportion. Jaxon's message alert goes off and Lynsay sends Jaxon some nude pics, terrifying Jaxon and grossing out Lana. Jaxon resolves he's gonna let Lynsay down gently, but Lana tells him that he can't use his being gay as an excuse because she is convinced that she can convert Jaxon. Lana tried to convince Jaxon that Lynsay is a complete psycho and might go "swimfan," causing Jaxon to worry about James' safety.

Jaxon shocks everyone, leaving Glee Club before its dismissed, causing Evan to follow Jaxon and try to talk to him. Jaxon tells Evan that the entire year, Glee Club has been devoid of happiness due to all the bad things that they have been going through. After Evan tells Jaxon that during magic week, everything seemed perfect again and he plans to achieve that again, Jaxon decides to come back the following day. Although Jaxon does return, he still fills the same. In the auditorium, he performs Funhouse, the lyrics echoing his own thoughts. Evan walks in, mid performance and watches Jaxon perform. After the song comes to an end, Evan tells Jaxon that the issue isn't Glee Club, it's Lana. He knows that Jaxon is upset with her, to which Jaxon agrees, saying he feels betrayed. During football practice, a play goes wrong causing Miles to blame another teammate. In the locker room, the disagreement turns into a fight that Jaxon tries to break up. Miles is so determined to get to Conrad that he pushes Jaxon when Jaxon tries to stop him, not caring that he just pushed his best friend to the ground. After this happens, Jaxon and Miles refuse to speak to one another. Jaxon realizes that he doesn't want both of his relationships with his best friends ruined, so he goes to Adam's house to talk to Lana and make things right with her. However, things don't go as planned and Jaxon abruptly leaves as to keep from further damaging their friendship. Jaxon gather Miles, Hallie, James, and Lana in the auditorium to try and fix their friendship by singing 18 Wheeler. However, Miles blows up at Lana. Jaxon tries to stop the resulting argument, but Miles accuses Jaxon of being preachy and calls him Schue, Jr. As Jaxon recoils from Miles' verbal attack, Miles quits Glee Club, leaving everyone stunned.
Jaxon is seen in Truth or Dare watching Miles and Taylor performing My First Kiss as an audition for a solo or duet at Regionals for Taylor. Parker Pennington, McKineley's student reporter, asks Jaxon for the real story of what happened at the New Year's Party and Jaxon expalins, via flashback, what really happened where as the game of spin the bottle was concerned. Jaxon's version of events is, in fact, considered canon. On his way back from football practice, Jaxon hears James playing the piano in the chior room. As Jaxon stops to listen, James sings 17 by Mandy Moore, unaware that Jaxon is standing there, listening.

Main section: What Could Have Been Jaxon
In Amy, Jaxon reveals to his friends that Lana and Miles' fued has exploded, causing Lana to quit Glee Club. Although he seems upset, he pushes on with his Glee Club assignment, performing Amy Winehouse's Cherry, which causes confusion in New Directions. Everyone thinks the song is about Hallie's former prom date and people start to speculate over Jaxon's sexuality.

Jaxon shares a fleeting moment with Lana as he leaves the school, showing that their bond is still strong.
In Retro Regionals, Jaxon is first seen with James, checking out the decorations in the auditorium for Regionals. While there, Jaxon's ex boyfriend from freshman year, McKenzie Kenton, enters the auditorium and remarks that the decorations make one feel welcome. When Mac asks Jaxon if they can talk, Jaxon remarks that there is not much for them to talk about. Mac admits he still has feelings and tries to pressure Jaxon into admitting the same, which makes James almost leave, due to him feeling uncomfortable. Jaxon then expresses his actual feelings in song, singing Gotye's Somebody That I Used To Know with Mac and James joining in. Unsatisfied, Mac then leaves, saying that he'd see them later that night at Regionals.

Jaxon and Miles have a flashback to right after Jaxon cheated on James during The Power of Love and Jaxon reflects on how even in his darkest moment, Miles was still there for him, like a true friend. Jaxon seems surprised to see Lana at Regionals, and after Lana tells him that she is there to support her friends, Aural Intensity takes the stage. Mac's solo, Alanis Morissette's You Oughta Know is a well-aimed shot at both Jaxon and James, which Taylor points out by saying that he is calling Jaxon out. When Adam sees Dillon while getting refreshments, Jaxon mentions that he hopes Adam doesn't plan on punching Dillon. When Monique leaves/gets forced out of Vocal Adrenaline, it's Jaxon who suggests that they do something for Monique, leading to Monique joining New Directions onstage at Regionals. During New Direction's performance, Jaxon comes to Nicole's defense when she changes her solo at the last moment due to seeing Dillon by saying that this is "her moment." Jaxon also has a solo in Spice Girl's Stop.
We first see Jaxon during Ch-Ch-Changes in the lunchroom on Valentine's Day as Lana sits down beside Jaxon, who asks Lana what she said. Lana seems surprised, asking Jaxon if Hallie told him and Ana Watson tells her that Hallie told the whole Glee Club. Jaxon and James return home for Valentine's Day and sing a romantic duet of Kiss From A Rose, with James pinning Jaxon to the wall. After the song, Jaxon turns the tables, lifts up James, carries him to the bed, lays him down, and climbs on top of him as the two make love passionately. When Monique transfers to McKinley, Kevin's remark that Monique is Lana's replacement upsets Jaxon. Later, Jaxon is one of the people who steps forward and comforts Hallie after White Horse. He has a solo in the group number, Changes, a song he helped pick out.
Jaxon first appears in The School of Hip-Hop as he observes Hallie wearing a pair of cheap gas station sunglasses to cover up the fact that she's been crying. Jaxon notes just how bad the break-up is when he notices that Hallie is listening to Taylor Swift. Jaxon awkwardly excuses himself as to not get caught up in the messy break-up, but ends up bumping into Lana. After trying to lie to Lana and say that Hallie isn't taking this hard, Jaxon asks how Lana's night with Adam and Nicole went. Jaxon says he has to go, but asks Lana to meet him and Miles in the courtyard after Glee Club. Lana shows, admitting she almst bailed, but Jaxon is happy to see her. Jaxon, along with Lana and Miles, perform Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You, a song Jaxon brings to Miles' attention for hip-hop week. Lana thanks Jaxon for not holding what happened against her, but Jaxon reassures her that he also cheated on James once, so he couldn't look down on her for the same thing. Jaxon takes Lana into his arms and kisses her forehead, saying he loves her. Jaxon is later seen saying that only the chorus of Hard Knock Life fits New Directions, also seeming to disapprove of the song choice. Jaxon looks at himself in the mirror during another School of Hip Hop session and hates what he sees, saying he looks like a clown, it isn't him, and he's tired of what they're doing. Jaxon is one of the people who gathers to look for Hallie, fearing the worst after Hallie skips school to confront Erica at Thurston. He and Lana team up when the group splits up and they find Hallie at the Lima Bean, where Hallie confronts Lana with Should've Said No. Jaxon is with Lana when Taylor slaps her after hearing about Lana's cheating and when she runs off, Jaxon follows her and she cries in his arms.

The NYADA Years Season 1Edit
What Could Have Been JaxonEdit
In the Season 3 episode, What Could Have Been, it is explored what would have happened if Mr. Schue had given up on Glee Club prior to For Your Entertainment, like he almost did. The events are confirmed to be quasi-canonical by JamesonOTP, who explains that this is really what the story would be like. "It's very much the official alternate reality."
Jaxon in What Could Have Been is revealed to be dating Evan Marx. Due to Glee Club, James Holland and Jaxon never fell in love and when Archie Carmichael came to McKinley to convince James to come back to Carmel and Vocal Adrenaline, there was nothing to keep him from doing so. Thus, James returned to Carmel and Jaxon fell in love with Evan instead. Instead of cheating on James with Evan at the post Pillsbury-Schuester wedding New Year's Eve party, Jaxon instead fell in love with Evan that night. The two have dated ever since. Even though Evan feels like Jaxon has drifted apart (due to the fact that the alternate reality Jaxon has been replaced by the real one), going as far as to sing Before It Explodes, they have not officially broken up in What Could Have Been. Because Jaxon isn't dating James for James' one-time bad boy phase to force them apart, Jaxon never dated Claude Montague and has only dated Evan since the New Year's Eve party. James looks at Jaxon, but pays him no attention during Jaxon's visit to Carmel.
Jaxon is still close friends with Miles Larson and Lana Addison, but he is no longer Hallie Grace's friend since Hallie joined India Wilson and Honey Berry as one third of the new Unholy Trinity. Jaxon's sort-of in-law type relationship with Honey is also not present as Honey had a crush on Jaxon and he turned her down due to his sexuality.
Jaxon is a nice person, trying to befriend everyone in Glee Club. He also jumps to their defense when people try to mess with them. He is, however, not so nice when it comes to someone messing with his friends or his boyfriend. Jaxon has been anything but nice to Archie. Jaxon is a born leader, and a great influence on his peers. He is a very loyal friend, going to great lengths for his friends. He feels a need to be hero and protector, especially to James, who he feels is very fragile.
Jaxon has sort of a Jekyll and Hyde personality. Normally, Jaxon is a more reserved, laid back guy. He is a little more on the side shy, especially when it comes to guys. He can be insecure, especially as far as Archie Carmichael is concerned. He doesn't always see his potential and he doesn't think he is anything special. However, when on stage, Jaxon is a completely different person. On stage, he's the epitome of a star. He seems confident, bold, brave, focused, and fierce. When he performs, Jaxon likes to get into the performance, going as far as wearing glam rock gear during a good number of performances.
Jaxon has been shown to put himself in dangerous situations and risk physical harm for those he loves, such as James in Beautiful Dangerous. Jaxon is also shown to not be afraid of heights or high risk manuevers while performing.
Jaxon is very normal in terms of his style outside of performing. He wears t-shirts, polos, jeans, sneakers, boots, etc. He wears scarves from time to time. He is seen wearing his letterman jacket a lot. Onstage, Jaxon is more bold and avant garde. He is known to wear glam make-up and clothes onstage and draws inspiration from Adam Lambert. His performance style, even when tame, always has a rock or punk edge to it.
Jaxon has dirty blonde hair, which he sometimes dyes a lighter shade. He sports numerous hairstyles over the span of the series, from a shorter cut, to shaggy hair, and even a fauxhawk from time to time. He is also shown to sport some facial hair now and then over the series. He has blue eyes and a fairly athletic build.
Jaxon is openly gay, but not stereotypical in the least. He's also masculine, liking sports and playing football. Unlike Kurt Hummel, he does not feel he is one of the girls and doesn't try to join them when split into teams by sex. He actually, with the exception of Lana and Hallie, feels more comfortable hanging with the guys. At one time, Jaxon was unsure of his sexuality, dating Lana very briefly in middle school. The two don't talk about it, however.
McKenzie and Jaxon had been friends for a long time until they actually fell in love and started dating. They dated during their freshman year until they were forced apart by McKenzie having to move due to his dad's job. McKenzie reappeared in Strength at a NYADA mixer attended by Jaxon, Evan, and Hallie. Jaxon and McKenzie perform an impromptu duet of Show Me How You Burlesque. Since then, Mac has had unrequited feelings for Jaxon, which is an issue for both Jaxon and James.

- JamesonOTP, who created Jaxon had a list of songs he wanted Jaxon to do that he created when he started his fan fiction. Those songs included "For Your Entertainment" by Adam Lambert, "Two of Hearts" by Stacey Q, "Circus" by Britney Spears, "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" by Cher from Burlesque, "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tiffany, "Cooler Than Me" by Mike Posner, "Moves Like Jagger" by Maroon 5 feat.

This was true until Season Three when Bella's eating disorder put her life in jeopardy and later when Evan overdosed on screen, putting his life in jeopardy. Lana's rooftop climb in Season 3 doesn't count as she never really actually tried to jump; she was lured away from the edge by Hallie.

- Jaxon drives a brown 2012 Ford Super Duty.
- Jaxon's favorite color is lime green.
So, maybe we should stick to letting the only magic we make together be a duet for right now.
—To James in Two of Hearts
I have to clean up the mess you’ve made. That’s love, Archie. I would hurt someone for James.”
—To Archie in Don't Turn Around
But if I ever went another day without loving you, it would kill me a little more inside. I know I did the one thing I swore I would never do. James, I feel like a big jerk. I want nothing more than to turn back time. I love you more than life itself.
—To James in Love Conquers All
You can have Principal Figgins expel me if you want. But I’m taking a stand. This has gone too far and someone around here needs to do something, dammit!
—To Will in Heal the World
I wish summer would hurry up so I can just go ahead and marry you. You are so incredibly sexy when you perform and you always know the right things to say. I have my edge back and it’s because of you. You are my muse, James.
—To James in Glee Goes Gaga
