Behr, the second of four boys, was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the son of Patricia Ann (née Steiner) and David Paul Behr. He has German ancestry. When Behr was young, the family moved from Minnesota, living in several different states until his father left the family when Behr was around ten. Then Patricia Behr moved her sons back to Minneapolis, where Jason attended a private grade school. He eventually graduated, in 1992, from Richfield Senior High School, in Richfield, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. At the age of 19, after a chance meeting with Hollywood manager Marvin Dauer in Minneapolis, Behr moved to Los Angeles. In his early acting career, he made over 75 commercials, and in 1995 landed the role of Tyler Baker in the racy Showtime comedy series Sherman Oaks. Sherman Oaks ran for two seasons until it was cancelled in early 1997.
