Nothing is known about J. Top's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
J. Top is stationed as a guard at the Shephard Office Plaza, which has been converted into an outpost used by the Saviors. As Mara begins to suspect something is not right, she radios J. Top and Little Roy for their location, but they do not answer. Moments later, Alexandrians arrive in their car and begin attacking the Saviors. Because of this, it is hinted that J. Top was taken out as the Alexandrians took on the outpost.
It is confirmed in Rick's note to the other communities that all of the Saviors at each outpost, including J. Top, have been killed.
This list shows the victims J. Top has killed:
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies and unnamed people
- "The Damned" (Mentioned)
