Jamie Thomas (born October 11, 1974), is an American professional skateboarder and skateboard industry magnate from Dothan, Alabama. His nickname in the industry is "The Chief". Thomas began skating at the age of 11, and slowly rose through the industry and went pro in 1994, with the help of the company Invisible, which is no longer operational. In 1995, Jamie joined Toy Machine, a small skateboarding company. During his time with them, he attempted the dangerous "Leap of Faith" at Point Loma High School in San Diego. It is from this jump that the Leap of Faith gap in School II of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 originated. In 1996, Thomas opened up a small clothing company which would later become Zero Skateboards. In 2000, Thomas expanded Zero and founded Black Box Distribution.

Jamie Thomas is one of the first skaters available in the Tony Hawk series, playable from Pro Skater to Underground. He would not been featured in the franchise again until Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2.

Jamie Thomas is one of the five original characters that did not made a appearance in any Tony Hawk games since the first five games until Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, along with Kareem Campbell, Rune Glifberg, Bucky Lasek, and Elissa Steamer.
