Dr. Jupiter came to Boston in 1975 for a year of General Surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital followed by an Orthopaedic residency in the Harvard program, finishing in December, 1979. An AO trauma fellowship in Basle, Switzerland, followed by a hand and microsurgical fellowship in Louisville completed his training.

Dr. Jupiter returned to the Massachusetts General Hospital in 1981 to work under Drs. Richard Smith and Henry Mankin combining hand surgery with trauma and reconstruction of traumatic conditions and ultimately heading the Hand Service from 1995 to the 2010. He is also the recipient of the Hansjörg Wyss/AO Chaired Professorship of Orthopaedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School.
