Jimmy returns in GTA Online as part of the After Hours update where he is one of the celebrities the GTA Online Protagonist can be called upon to deliver to their club to maintain their popularity. He will then be found inside the nightclub for a period of time, sitting and drinking beer in the VIP lounge area. During his appearance, he mentions that his best-known acting role is as a lifeguard on an unspecified TV show.
In late 2021, during the events of The Contract, cannabis has become a legal commodity. Seeking ways into the industry, Jimmy and Marnie get in touch with Lamar Davis, a well-advocated weed dealer. Despite the request for a discreet, off-the-books meeting, Lamar blatantly boasts about it on social media and accidentally leaks crucial details regarding the exchange, specifically by photographing himself at the rendezvous while finalizing the meet and uploading it to Snapmatic. The Vagos, who have been in a dispute with him and his associate, Franklin Clinton, disrupt the deal as it transpires and unsuccessfully attempt to kill Lamar. He ceases contact with the Epsilonists following the deal, who in reality, simply wanted to re-brand his business to their own liking.
