Meet Jamison Bachman, One Of The Subjects Of Netflix’s Worst Roommate Ever
“Serial Squatter” Jamison Bachman is one of the subjects of Netflix’s five-part series Worst Roommate Ever.
Alex Miller, a 31-year-old woman, offered her spare bedroom on Craigslist in 2017. She received an offer from a man named Jed Creek, who turned out to be Jamison Bachman, two weeks later. Jed pretended to be a lawyer and told her she needed to get a place because his family was unwell and he needed to look after them.
Jamison gave Alex an $800 check when they agreed to live together. Alex didn’t notice the lack of an address on the check because it cleared the next day.
Alex got into a rhythm of living together, getting up early to exercise his dog, but things quickly deteriorated. Jamison claimed the money covered the period before he ever moved in when Alex asked him to pay $140 for his portion of the utility expenses.
“We can handle this in court if you prefer,” he texted her when she pressured him to pay. When Alex returned home one day, Jed had removed all of the lightbulbs from the communal living room for his lamps, as well as the six dining room chairs, which he had converted into a workstation.
Alex’s mother became skeptical of Creek and started to search him up online, only to discover his true name and several stories, one of which said that he attempted to evict a woman named Melissa Frost from her house in New York during Hurricane Sandy.
Alex wrote Jed a letter after learning of his true name from her mother, informing him that the authorities had been informed of his conduct and that he had to leave. He ultimately departed, but not before emptying the toilet of cat litter. He returned to the property later that day and attacked Alex. Jamison was arrested and charged with aggravated assault when Alex phoned the cops.
When he left, she found a box with bullets and a cleaning kit for a 0.380 caliber pistol in his belongings.

What Do We Know About Jamison Bachman’s Family?
Growing up, Jamison Bachman was groomed for greatness. He was born to his parents Joan and Jim Bachman. His father was the owner of a construction company, and his mother stayed at home.
One of his closest childhood friends, Bob Friedman had shared, “He was the cockiest kid you ever met”. High marks, excelling in tennis, spending his free time deep in books on the history of Western civilization, he was a golden boy. His parents had made him think that he was the Christ child, that he could do no wrong.
Jamison’s friend Bob revealed To NYMag, “They doted on him. It was always ‘You’re doing great, champ’ or ‘You’re the best,’”.
But he also had a role model in his life, Jamison’s maternal grandfather Abraham J. Brem Levy, a prominent attorney in the city. He boasted his grandfather’s success throughout his youth.
Jamison had a brother Harry, who was four years old than him, was handsome and multitalented, juggling the varsity soccer team and the school productions of Camelot and Brigadoon. Harry was outgoing and humble whereas Jamison was ostentatiously self-confident.
Before Jamison killed his brother, Harry had earned a degree in architecture from Cornell, married a psychologist from Paris, and raised two daughters in a quaint, Colonial-style home on a quiet street in Elkins Park — a sort of suburban fairy tale of making good and sticking close to your roots.
His brother’s success offered a sharper contrast still and his parents were ashamed that their younger son hadn’t similarly flourished. He had failed the bar exam and never became a lawyer. Jamison often talked about his family with resentment.
