A law student from St. Louis, Missouri...

Jamie Weiss

Date of First Appearance:
February 1990 (Teen Tournament)
November 1990 (Tournament of Champions)

Total Winnings:
$31,000 ($26,000 Teen Tournament, $5000 ToC)

They tell me I was/am the youngest Teen Tournament champion. I was 15 when the shows were taped.

Favorite Anecdote:
In order to win the Teen Tournament against vastly smarter opponents, I had to take two True Daily Doubles, and bet it all in Final Jeopardy! in the first day of the finals.

Jeopardy!'s effect on my life:
You never know what it's like to have elderly women recognize you in grocery stores until you've been on Jeopardy!

Anything Else:
My time these days is overwhelmingly devoted to my wife and infant son, Brennan, who was born in November.
