RJ is a Family Guy character from Wisconsin, according to creator Seth MacFarlane.

He first appeared in "Boys Do Cry", where in an interview with Tom Tucker he claims that he once saw Bigfoot while attempting to make love with his girlfriend at the lake. However, due to the amount of mosquitoes in the area, his girlfriend said that "there was no way".

He was also cast as an Imperial Stormtrooper in Blue Harvest. He talks about how he was once again unable to "bone" his girlfriend due to a Death Star drill.

RJ also appears to witness the verification of normalcy in Meg Griffin's boyfriend Anthony in "Go, Stewie, Go!" and participated in the contest to win the dirt bike in "Trading Places".

MacFarlane noted in the commentary for "Boys Do Cry" that RJ was a liked character but just couldn't fit into episodes well. While credited as being from Wisconsin, he is also claimed as both Canadian and as a "Yooper", which is someone from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

RJ is interviewed after Mayor Adam West raises the drinking age to fifty in "Underage Peter" and appears as one of several sidelined characters in the opening of "A Lot Going On Upstairs".

RJ is voiced by Mike Henry.
