Jared Booth (portrayed by Brendan Fehr) is the younger brother of Seeley Booth and the paternal uncle of Parker Booth and Christine Booth. His first appearance was in the fourth season episode "The Con Man in the Meth Lab", where he arrived in Washington, D.C. to take a new job at the Pentagon.
He charms Brennan when the two go out on a date. Despite seeming as capable and responsible as his brother, Jared has a history, as revealed by long-time family friend Cam, of getting into trouble and Seeley taking the blame for him. After leaving his job in the Navy after disobeying protocol to save Seeleys life in "The Hero in the Hold", he chose to take a sabbatical and travel around India.
He returns in The Dentist in the Ditch where he reveals that he was engaged to Padme Dalaj. Seeley researched her and found out that she had been an escort. Jared however told Seeley that he already knew.
