Jayvon Simson is a character in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Jayvon was a biker member of the North Holland Hustlers of Jamaican descent. He was a small time drug dealer and was therefore wanted by the police. To avoid being arrested by the LCPD, he became a police informant and ratted out his fellow gang members including leader Dwayne Forge. When Dwayne was incarcerated, Jayvon started to date Dwayne's girlfriend Cherise Glover.

When Dwayne got out of prison, he went to his former apprentice Playboy X, who connected him with Niko Bellic. Dwayne sent Niko to kill Jayvon, who was, at the time, with Cherise at an arcade in Chinatown. Jayvon managed to get on his bike and fled, while being followed by Niko, who eventually killed him and took his money back to Dwayne.

Possible Bug

  • Should the player chase Jayvon enough, he will eventually crash his motorcycle; however, instead of fleeing from Niko like other NPC's in the game, he will simply stand there, with an angry look on his face. He will not do anything, even if Niko points his gun at him at close range.
