Jam was raised in rural Montana and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in art in 2006 and a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture in 2013 from the University of Montana. He received a Fulbright Grant for 2013-14 to travel and work in Iceland, where he spent a year researching the relationship between physical place and environmental sound.
