Though this is not going to get likes, in fact, it'll get dislikes, a JF is a true Christian who strives to live his or her life for Jesus. By grace they have been saved from their sins, spending time in his word and choosing to live for him; they tend to be non-denominational, but they may come from ANY denomination, even Catholic. They typically would fall under the umbrella of evangelical. That means they want their friends to know what Jesus has done for them and how much he loves them, and to accept him. They don't try to stuff Jesus down your throat, for they know that you can't, and may share Jesus or may wish to let their life do the talking. Though all true Christians can be labeled JFs, usually those who self-profess to be this are Christian teenagers. It is a reclaimed term, as it originally was a derogatory term used against hippies during the JM of the 70s, but when dcTalk made a hit crossover song called "Jesus Freak" during the 90s, young Christians now use it. They are cool, and may very well be your friend, but their "religious side," causes them to be persecuted. Their irreligious friends try to squeeze it out of them in every way possible, calling them racist, brainwashed, and intolerant, saying that they aren't cool for simply stating the truth out of LOVE NOT HATE. Most are truly legitimately cool people with normal lives that just happen to have been lucky enough to know Jesus.

(Note: True JFs do not live this way as an act, they are genuine people.)
Cameron: Do you want to come over tonight and see that movie I talked about? Maybe we can get some girls to come over, and you know...

Josh: Well, as much I'd like to do that, you no perfectly well that I'm a Christian and am not allowed to watch R rated films, nor would I want to... I would want to see the girls though...

Cameron: Oh, dude, I'm your friend, but do you have to throw in Jesus into EVERYTHING. I've told you 50 million times I'm an atheist and don't think God exists. It all just doesn't make very much sense to me. Can you please come over?

Josh: I know you're an atheist, Cam, and that's why I don't want to see you go to... (suddenly he got very quiet)

Cameron: ****? You really think I'm going to **** for not believing in something that doesn't exist and for living a life of sin that I don't have?

Josh: Well, when you put it that way... (silence) But yeah, I believe that because it's the truth, I guess. The Bible says so. I'll come over as long as we don't watch an R rated film. We can watch something else on your huge movie screen. But, will you please come to church, just once with me, this weekend? They have rock music!

Cameron: Fine, can't hurt. I'll come. But can we bring the girls tonight though?

Josh: Sure, but not to have sex.

Cameron: Ugh, you are such a Jesus Freak!

n. Someone who displays an unusual or embarrasing amount of enthusiasm for Jesus.

This term was first used in the 1960's in reference to the growing movement of radical, unconventional Christians who often displayed hippie leanings.

Someone who persists in talking about the importance of Jesus in their life and the world to the point of being rude.

A self-professed Christian who labors under the mistaken impression that Christians are persecuted in this country, and that he or she is commonly persecuted for his or her beliefs. These people usually attempt to convert everyone they know or meet to their own denomination of "born again" Christianity, thereby alienating a number of non-Christians as well as Christians of denominations not of their own, then attribute their subsequent shunning by society to a fictitious, widespread anti-Christian mania.
Josh: "Hi, my name is Josh, and I'm a Jesus freak."
Tim "Hi, my name is Tim, and I'm Jewish."
Josh: "You need the love of Jesus in your life! Repent! You're going to hell!"
Tim: *walks away*
Josh: "Why do you hate me? Why must I be persecuted?!"

A person who supports and believes in Christianity, often to the degree where it's overwhelming, irritating, and even creepy. Some pass out pamphlets promoting God or Christ, plead with you to come to church, and sport stickers or T-shirts promoting their God, whom they've never seen physical proof of. Sometimes they'll even try to force their beliefs on you, so if you're an atheist, beware.
Jesus freak: "Come to church, it won't hurt. Jesus loves you. He died for your sins."

Person: "Well, have you actually seen Jesus or God?"

Jesus freak: "Um, no, but he talks to me in my dreams."

Person: "Uhh... yeah. Piss off, you creep."

People of the Christian faith who become fanatical in their beliefs, eventually driving away friends with different religions, sexual preferences, ect. Note that not all Christians are like this.

While these people aren't "Bad" people,they are usually intolerant to others religious beliefs. They tend to tell those of other religion that they are going to Hell and that they need to convert to Christianity. These can also be those who preach about their respective denominations. There is also a possibility that they could be homophobic.
Jane: Hey are you a Christian
Joe: No, sorry. I'm a very devout Jew.
Jane: *gasp* OMG! We must save your soul! You must convert, lest you go to Hell!
Joe: Oh man, your a Jesus freak!
