Cook was born in Somerdale, New Jersey to Bill Cook (an engineer for amusement parks) and JoAnne (a pre-school teacher); he has two sisters, Michelle and Jenean, and a brother, Michael. When he was very young, his family moved to California. At an early age, Jason began studying the piano. As his musical skills improved, he got jobs performing at occasional weddings. He did not consider acting until high school, when he served as an emergency replacement in Whodunnit. He knew from then on that he wanted to be an actor. His father had a friend who was a theatre manager and he happened to be in the audience that night, who helped him get other jobs.
