A tall, muscular guard, he is one of the favorites of both Warden Leo Glynn and Unit Manager Tim McManus. Throughout the series, he and Officer Joseph Mineo are some of the only officers seen in all six seasons.
Jason Armstrong was one of the COs who was assigned to Emerald City, taking care of Emerald City entry gate. When the riot erupted, Armstrong called for help and ran to Emerald City. When he got out of his room, Ryan O'Reily beat him using a chair, leaving Jason unconscious. Tim McManus made a deal with Kareem Said, where he would trade himself for the injured COs Armstrong and Joseph Mineo.
Seasons 2 & 3Edit
Armstrong was a background Officer, always breaking fights and patrolling.
Under the reign of Martin Querns and Simon Adebisi, Emerald City became a unit with the majority of African Americans inmates. Soon, Querns transferred all the White COs out of Emerald City, including Armstrong.
Once again, Armstrong is only a background character.
