'''James "Jimmy" De Santa''' is a character in [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
== Character background ==
Jimmy is the dysfunctional son of protagonist [[Michael De Santa|Michael]] and his wife [[Amanda De Santa|Amanda]] and [[Tracey De Santa|Tracey's]] brother. Jimmy does not have a good relationship with his family, as he blames Michael for most, if not all, of his problems, and he constantly argues with Tracey; however, he seemingly does not have any major conflict with his mother.
Jimmy purchases a [[BeeJay XL|SUV]] from [[Simeon Yetarian]]'s [[Premium Deluxe Motorsport]], and the SUV is later repossessed by [[Franklin Clinton]] when Simeon believed that Jimmy was already late on his payments, despite just recently purchasing the vehicle. Jimmy later attempts to [[Father/Son|sell his dad's yacht]]; however, the buyers steal the boat, and Michael and Franklin are forced to rescue him. Jimmy later becomes friends with Franklin. Some time later, Michael attempts to bond with Jimmy by [[Daddy's Little Girl|taking him for a bike ride]]. Jimmy complains during most of the outing, as the two had an argument beforehand which resulted in the destruction of Jimmy's TV, and states that Michael doesn't treat Tracey with the same level of scrutiny he's treated with. After Michael rebuts Jimmy's complaints, believing that Tracey is more responsible, Jimmy reveals that she is on a yacht with porn producers, infuriating Michael. After Michael takes Tracey off the boat, she shows her anger towards Jimmy; however, Jimmy claims that he didn't expect their father to overreact as he did.
Michael later discovers a large brick of marijuana in the freezer and confronts Jimmy about it. As the two have the argument over the marijuana, [[Trevor Philips]] shows up unexpectedly. When Trevor notices Tracey is not at home, Jimmy reveals that she is at the [[Maze Bank Arena]], [[Fame or Shame (mission)|auditioning for]] [[Fame or Shame]]. After Michael has a [[Did Somebody Say Yoga?|falling out with Amanda]] after attempting to attack her yoga instructor [[Fabien LaRouche]], he goes to Jimmy's room and finds that his TV had been replaced. Michael wants Jimmy to go with him since he wants to get out of the house and doesn't want to go by himself. Jimmy tells Michael to take him to [[Burger Shot]] to meet with his drug dealer; during the exchange, Jimmy receives a large cup of a drug-laced soft drink. Jimmy convinces Michael to take a sip; as Michael comes under the effect of the drug, Jimmy throws Michael out of his [[Tailgater|car]], telling his mother that Michael was driving under the influence, causing her and the children to leave Michael.
Jimmy eventually returns Michael's car with some modifications, including dollar sign rims and a "La Cucaracha" car horn. Later, Jimmy comes home in an attempt to reconcile with his father and convinces him to [[Reuniting the Family|show Amanda that he cares about her and the children]]. Jimmy's relations with his father soon improve after moving back in with Michael. When [[Solomon Richards]] [[Meltdown (GTA V)|premieres his latest film]] ''[[Meltdown (film)|Meltdown]]'', Jimmy rents a [[Stretch|limousine]] to take him and Michael to the premiere at the [[Oriental Theater]]. When Michael realizes that [[Devin Weston]] sent [[Merryweather Security Consulting|Merryweather mercenaries]] to kill Amanda and Tracey, he and Jimmy race back to the De Santa mansion. Michael tells Jimmy to keep himself hidden while he neutralizes the threat. When Michael is ambushed by a surviving mercenary, Jimmy rescues Michael by knocking out the mercenary with his bong. Jimmy tries to teabag the downed mercenary, but ends up doing it to Michael by mistake. The incident forces Jimmy, Tracey, and Amanda to move out again for their safety.
If the player decides to [[Endings in GTA V|assassinate either Michael or Trevor]], Jimmy will cut his ties with Franklin.
== Personality ==
Jimmy is portrayed as a young whiny adult, exhibiting stereotypical [[wp:Millennials|Millennial]] behaviours such as being lazy, believing he's entitled to everything, and believing that he knows everything. He spends most of his days smoking marijuana, playing video games, particularly the first person shooter [[Righteous Slaughter 7]], and masturbating. While playing video games, he often uses racial and homophobic slurs against his opponents.
