Of course, he has a LONG way to go to catch the other two: Ken Jennings made $2,520,700 and James Holzhauer was close behind at $2,462,216.

Jason is also in fifth place on the all-time consecutive wins list, behind Jennings (74 wins), Holzhauer (32 wins),Julia Collins (20 wins), and David Madden(19 wins).  (People)
