James Parker is a workaholic family man who moved with his wife to Sunset Valley to start a family as well as pursue his dream as a CEO. Because of his ambitiousness James was able to fulfill this wish just before becoming an adult.
Although he cared for work, he also cared for his family as well, he retired to help raise his grandson, Jack for a while and moved to Bridgeport with his two youngest so they can fulfill their dreams.
Where James was born and raised is unknown. Before the memory system was introduced he got a job in Business as a Coffee Courier before being promoted to Filing Clerk and a father of twins, Jacob and Jared. What he experienced after the memory system, James was late for work, only one of a few times he was ever late for work. Despite being late, he got a promotion to Report Processor. He also learned cooking to provide meals for his family. Lucky had joined the family and James threw a birthday party for his sons aging up. They learned to talk before he got a promotion to Corporate Drone. After a few days when the Twins were about to age up into children, he WooHooed with Joanna. And after the Twins learned to walk, he got another promotion to Department Head. The next day James worked hard enough for a raise and a promotion to Division Manager. Once the Twins learned their three basic skills, he threw a party for them into the next stage. That's when James and Joanna had Julia. On his day off, James visited the Fall Festival and braved the Scary Shack. He befriended Nick Alto, who was a celebrity, on the same day Julia aged up. After she learned to talk, James got promoted to Vice President. And that night, he WooHooed with Joanna again, except this time, she was a celebrity. Later that day, Pepper joined the family and James had fulfilled his lifetime wish by being promoted to CEO and got to ride in a limo because of it. Two days later, he became an Adult.
His adulthood started off with a rough start. When Joanna went into labor with Jordan, he was making spaghetti and accidentally left it on for too long and it started a fire. The Twins also aged up on the same day into teens. The next day James got a promotion to Chairman of the Board. Two days later, he saw Julia and Jordan age up. He was late for a second time the next day. James was able to get his cooking to the halfway point. Three days later, James became a Power Broker, the top level in the Business career. Once Jordan aged up into a child, he WooHooed with Joanna one final time. The next day James was late for work one final time but it was worth riding in 40,000 Simolean car. Two days later, Joanna had Jenna and the Twins aged up the next day. Within the next eight days, Karissa moved in, Jenna became a toddler, Jordan became a teen, Jenna learned how to use the toilet and talk, James learned Athletic and saw Nick Alto die before becoming an Elder.
The day after Jenna learned to walk, James went to work for the final time before retiring. Jenna aged up and Julia became a Young Adult. After Julia attended University, she became pregnant and he felt her tummy with the first third generation Parker. A few days later he saw Jenna become a teen and the day after, James became a grandparent. The next day, Dorothy DeMayo passed away along with Lucky on the same day Jordan aged up. Five days later, James moved with Joanna, Jordan, Jenna and Pepper to Bridgeport where he lived out his days and died while visiting a lounge with Joanna on the third day in Bridgeport. His tombstone currently resides on the deck of the Parker apartment in Bridgeport.
