Parker studied drama at Beloit College. While living in Washington, D.C., he landed a job with a production of The Great White Hope at the Arena Stage, and went on to act in theatrical productions of Caligula and Indians. After completing his degree at Beloit, he returned to the Washington, D.C. area, where he performed in dinner theater and summer stock. In 1972, he moved to New York City, where he secured several television commercials and appeared in off-Broadway plays. He was eventually cast as Dale Robinson in the daytime drama Somerset. He later created the original Brad Vernon on One Life to Live. Parker made his motion picture debut in The Bell Jar and also starred in 1980`s A Small Circle of Friends, where he played one of three radical college students during the 1960s. The United Artists-released film received only a limited theatrical release, ultimately grossing under $1 million. Another film to his early acting career was the controversial White Dog.

In his book An Accidental Cowboy, Jameson Parker recounts his life after Simon & Simon. Another book Parker has written is called To Absent Friends, which he calls "a collection of stories of the dogs we miss". Parker has often stated that he was not the typical "Hollywood type", and that he is very much a homebody.
