Jacques was the son of Louis Coulon de Villiers.
Lucy Preston, Wyatt Logan, and Rufus Carlin were captured by the French during the French and Indian War under the false assumption they were British spies. Later, on September 15, 1754, the three were still imprisoned and Jacques asked Louis Coulon de Villiers if they should feed the prisoners. Coulon denied his son's request, claiming that his mother raised him too soft. Coulon left for Fort Duquesne for a day and left Jacques in charge of tending to the prisoners. Shortly after Coulon leaves, Wyatt breaks free from the rope and kills Jacques with a modern handgun.
Coulon returns a day later to find his son's body. He mourns his son, restating that his mother made him too soft. Coulon turned his attention to finding Wyatt, Lucy, and Rufus for killing Jacques.
